Auditions for Love Sucks: An Alternative Valentine’s Cabaret

Valentine’s Day is a saccharine sweet Hallmark holiday and it’s easy to pull together a load of love songs to celebrate it.

That doesn’t always make for the most interesting of cabarets.

So here at Geoids we have decided to put together our own, alternative, look at the holiday and take a look at love, romance, sex and relationships from another angle, exploring unconventional relationships; times where love goes wrong; contradictory emotions that are wrapped up with love. We’re not all out cynics, we promise, we just want to bring a bit of dry humour to the usual view of the holiday.

The team have plenty of ideas but will be working in collaboration with the cast to draw chosen songs together into a cohesive performance. We are very much open to suggestions from performers as to what songs should make the set list. We would be interested to include any genre of music (from show tunes, to folk songs, to pop music) to create a wholly original show that plays to the strengths of those who are cast.

For more information about the show and more details on performances please see our Audition Notice.

Auditions will take place on Monday 3 December at Rag Factory and Tuesday 4 December at  City Lit building next to the Bridewell Theatre. Auditions are split into slots with more information in the Audition Notice, but you must email us at lovesucks@geoidsmt.co.uk to book your slot.
