WHAT

T3 is seeking exceptional performers ages 16 to 21 for our new work-based-learning concept centered around the creation and performance of a 90s Pop/Rock music revue. Designed for those considering a BFA program or who are wanting to go pro, approximately 8 people will be selected.

Over the course of eight weeks, our objective is to produce a professional showcase production to help San Diego’s most promising youth entertainers connect their performing arts training with a real-world work experience. With some compensation provided (more info below), participants will gain industry-related skills and training in an “earn while you learn” environment under the direction and supervision of experienced mentors. We hope to
foster young professionals who are confident in their skills, embrace a good work ethic, and have a better understanding of what it takes to be a part of the multi-billion-dollar entertainment industry. The showcase will be presented to a VIP guest list of potential investors and local industry leaders. Additional performance opportunities may become available and will be discussed with those interested.

PERFORMER EXPECTATIONS

Before auditioning, candidates must review and agree to the production schedule, communicating all known conflicts at the time of their audition. Once cast, performers will be responsible for attending all scheduled rehearsals, arriving on time and ready to go,

and maintaining the integrity of all choreography and music taught. Performers will have access to “homework choreography videos,” however singers will be expected to record all vocal solos and group harmonies on a personal device. As we work to bridge the gap between on-the-job training and professional opportunities by providing compensation and exposure, all performers are expected to conduct themselves as professionals. Prior to each performance, there will be a meet-and-greet with patrons and some “hosting” responsibilities. Candidates should be comfortable with this type on interaction. Each cast member must agree to a “Performer’s Agreement” which should be printed, signed, and returned prior to the first rehearsal. More information will follow once cast.
