Langley – Do you sing, dance, act, juggle, play an instrument, or have some other entertaining talent that brings smiles to people’s faces?
If so, the Township of Langley wants to hear from you, as it schedules performers for this year’s Canada Day activities and Summer Festival Series.
“We are organizing several events in 2018 that will help celebrate the arts and culture of our communities,” said Peter Tulumello, the Township’s Director of Arts, Culture and Community Initiatives. “A variety of performers and talent is being sought, as we plan to present an eclectic array of musical, theatrical, multicultural, and performing genres.”
The Township is looking for performances ranging from 15- to 20-minute sets to staged productions of an hour-and-a-half to two hours long. Acts will be featured during Canada Day celebrations in Willoughby and Fort Langley on July 1, and spotlighted during the Township’s Summer Festival Series, which runs at the Willoughby Park Amphitheatre on Thursday evenings throughout July and August. Wandering performers including minstrels, clowns, puppeteers, and jugglers are also required.
Performances are for audiences of all ages, so acts must be family-friendly.
Entertainers who would like to be considered by the Township are asked to submit proposals including detailed descriptions of their presentations, publicity photos, videos (or links to them) and CDs, along with a list of references and past experiences. Those making submissions should also include the dates they have available from June through August, the length of each performance set, and remuneration expectations.
Submissions can be mailed to Arts, Culture and Community Initiatives, Township of Langley, 20338 – 65 Avenue, Langley, BC, V2Y 3JI. Electronic press kits can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for submissions is Wednesday, February 28.
Proposals will be adjudicated by a panel of volunteer entertainment professionals and while all submissions are appreciated, only those groups or individuals invited to a second stage of consideration will be notified.
