Sections of our Show that we are Casting for at our 2022 Auditions:

-Warmup Show – This is the pre-show that gets our audience ready for a night of fun and laughter. Performers in this show generally perform to a karaoke track or play their own instruments for accompaniment. (This portion includes comedy, singing, dancing, etc.)

-Main Show (Acts 1 & 2) – This is the portion of our show where our singers perform with a live band. (This portion includes commercials, comedy, singing, dancing, etc.)

-Commercials– These are live 1-minute comedy skits that we sell to local sponsors and then perform as live commercials during each Main Show (Acts 1 & 2).

-Songwriters’ Segment– This is where we showcase local songwriters in a songwriters’ round during Act 2 of the Main Show.

-Opry Segment– This is where we showcase singers performing as classic country stars in Act 1 of the Main Show.
