The 'Show Us Your Talent Variety Show' is Looking for New Acts

The Saco River Festival Association is looking for some new acts for the 3rd Annual Show Us Your Talent Variety Show; comedians, jugglers, dancers, musicians, etc.


Here’s what you need to know:


  • The Variety Show is planned for Saturday, April 25, 2020, from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. at Pike Memorial Hall Auditorium, Cornish, Maine. Admission is $5.00 per ticket. Participants are free, but family and friends have to purchase tickets, as this is a fundraiser for renovations at Pike Hall Auditorium and seating is limited. Refreshments will be available (donations encouraged).

  • The Variety Show is sponsored by the Saco River Festival Association, a non-profit 501(c)3 arts organization. Profits from the Variety Show will benefit the renovations at Pike Hall. Participants are donating their time and talents and we are very appreciative!

  • Participants should attend one of the two auditions at Pike Hall, Friday, April 3, from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m., or Saturday, April 4, 2020, from 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

  • Participants must attend the dress rehearsal (to determine the line-up, time the program, see what equipment needs to be moved, etc). The dress rehearsal will be held on Saturday, April 18, from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. Be sure to bring whatever you need - music, costumes, music stand, amps, etc. You might want to bring a bottle of water as well. They will provide a microphone and speaker, but if you have some that you use, you are welcome to bring it and they’ll try to accommodate you if we can (outlets, etc).

  • Kate Beever will be the Master of Ceremonies. Kate is a professional musician who will also assist with determining the line-up.

  • You will have to sign a “Release of Liability in Favor of the Town of Cornish” form before the rehearsal. That is a town requirement.

  • No one is allowed to go up in the balcony (including photographers). That is a town requirement as well. Fundraising is ongoing to make the auditorium and balcony compliant according to the Fire Marshall’s requirements (this variety show is one of the fundraisers).

  • There is a lift that is accessible for anyone with physical limitations and to bring musical instruments/amps, etc. up to the hall.


What is needed from you:

Please respond before the end of March with this information:

  • Name of people in your group and your contact info, including cell/phone#.

  • Name of song(s) or act you plan to perform. Please try to keep your act to 5 minutes or less, unless they’ve requested additional songs from your group already.

  • Anything else you’d like them to say about you and/or your group when they introduce you.

We are so fortunate to have such talent in and around our community! Thank you for donating your time and talent for this show.
