This XXX-Mas, You Could Be The Star!

24hourplay

This time last year, if you had told me that you could pull off a hilarious holiday-themed musical with only 24 hours of rehearsal time, I would have thought you were crazy. Most plays, even amateur ones, have a rehearsal period of months, giving those involved plenty of time to hone their craft, perfect their lines and master their cues. But last December, the crazy crew at Glam Gam Productions successfully pulled it off with the first annual 24-hour XXX Mystery Cabaret Show.

Jason Ross Sellars as Ebenezer Splooge

We staged a raunchy re-telling of Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol, where Ebeneezer Scrooge became Splooge, a porn producer. This year, we’re at it again and seeking actors, singers, dancers, theatre geeks, circus freaks, burlesque performers, musicians, artists, set builders, costume wizards – you name it. We want you! Come on down to Café Cleopatre at 9pm on Thursday, November 29th to pick you role and get your script.

Maybe you haven’t been on stage since appearing as Tony in a high school production of West Side Story the better part of a decade ago. Or perhaps you’d be popping your stage cherry, gracing the worn floorboards and facing a live audience for the very first time. You’ve always been a bit of an exhibitionist, now it’s time to explore. If you’re not quite ready for the stage, you could always lend a hand with props or costumes and watch the actors sweat down to their skivvies from the trap door.

Let’s clear one thing up first: it’s not a play that’s 24 hours long. We do like dancing and taking our clothes off, but even we need to sleep sometimes. Rather, it’s a production that is selected from three contenders, cast, rehearsed and staged, all in 24 short hours. It will require heaps of collaboration and boundless courage along with (realistically) a Christmas miracle.

But telling a Christmas story can’t be that hard, right? We’ve whittled it down to three famed tales that were particularly memorable from our formative years and given them a healthy dose of sugar, spice and all things naughty and nice. Our choices are How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, and Frosty the Snowman.

We’ve broken the roles down to three categories: Luscious Lead (*may require full or partial nudity), Scantilly Clad Chorus, or a Camel Toe Cameo. Our call is open to professionals and amateurs alike, all roles are up for grabs. Be forewarned though: you could have to sing, you might dare to dance, but above all else, you must be prepared to be ridiculous.

And as completely insane as it sounds, ready or not the curtains will draw 24 hours later and a play will be performed. For more information or to fill out a registration form, visit Glamgam.com. Or go there anyways, there are lots of sexy pictures of past shows.

Finally, please cum and check out the show next Saturday, November 30th at Cafe Cleopatre (1230 St. Laurent). Doors open at 9 and the show starts at 10 sharp. The cost is $12, or $10 with a non-perishable food item for Head & Hands. This show is a fundraiser for our 2013 Montreal Fringe play. Will we succeed in pulling off this seemingly insane undertaking? Or will we fall flat on our naked butts??   Either way, it’s entertainment!
