Auditions


Your time to shine!

Do you want to audition to be part of the Saskatchewan Talent on Telemiracle? Here’s what you need to know!

 

Before you audition, you should be aware:

  • During the audition process we are looking for a variety of acts, but most importantly, we are looking to have communities throughout Saskatchewan represented on Telemiracle. If you happen to NOT be selected, it is not necessarily because of your talent, but, perhaps because of where you live. 

  • You could be selected to perform at either the Count-down show or the main telethon.

  • The count-down show is from 6:30 pm - 8:45 pm, on the Saturday, just before the telethon. It is a Facebook Live event, online. Those who perform on the Count-down show get to perform two songs.

  • Telemiracle is a 20-hour telethon from 9 pm on the Saturday till 5 pm on Sunday. Those who perform on Telemiracle get to perform one song. A small number of acts may be asked to perform longer sets in the overnight period. Typically high energy bands from the host city.

  • Your image and all or parts of your performance at this audition may be used by Telemiracle or news outlets.

 

The audition application process:

Auditions are usually held during the first weekend in November. In Regina on the Saturday and in Saskatoon on the Sunday.

We start accepting applications right after Labour Day. We stop accepting applications on the deadline date in October or when all the audition spots fill up, whichever comes first. Once we stop accepting application forms, we can add you to a waiting list, in case a spot opens up.

***Audition spots do fill up so don’t wait to apply or you may miss your chance.***

 

The application form:

You can either apply online, the form can be found on our website under Telemiracle > Telemiracle 43 > Telemiracle 43 Auditions (whichever Telemiracle year it currently is);

or you can apply by calling the Telemiracle Administrative Assistant (TM Assistant), during office hours, at (306) 244-6400 extension 2 or toll-free at 1-877-777-8979 extension 2, to fill out the form over the phone.

When applying online, if you do not get confirmation that your application was received (within 24 hours), PLEASE CONTACT THE TM ASSISTANT the next business day. Your application may not have made it through properly. Make sure, when filling out the form, to double check that your email address is correct (no typos).

Right after the application deadline, you will be emailed (or mailed) a letter with your audition time, location, and any other relevant information. Please contact the TM Assistant to confirm that you received your letter, either by calling (306) 244-6400 extension 2 or toll-free at 1-877-777-8979 extension 2 or via email by hitting "reply" in the email you received. If you do not receive a letter within 24 hours of the application deadline, PLEASE CONTACT THE TM ASSISTANT.

If you can no longer make it to the auditions or you will be late arriving to your audition, PLEASE CONTACT THE TM ASSISTANT. She will be reachable the weekend of the auditions as well.

 

Audition Day:

  1. Please check in at least 20 minutes before your scheduled time, to allow time for registration and to prepare.

  2. Each applicant receives a six-minute time slot. In that six (6) minutes, there is approximately four minutes of performance time (one song) and two minutes to speak with the producers.

  3. You must provide your own accompaniment.

  4. You are responsible for your own travel.

  5. We will provide amps, a sound system, electric piano, drums (bring your own sticks), and CD player. If using recorded music, there should be no lead vocals – a karaoke track. If bringing an iPod or smartphone, please be sure you bring someone along who can run it during the audition.

  6. The number performed at the auditions will be expected to be performed at the show, if chosen to be a part of the Saskatchewan Talent.

 

Tips for a good audition:

  1. An upbeat song is preferred to a slow song. It encourages people to Ring Those Phones!

  2. Try to choose a song that isn’t too common. For example, Hallelujah is a beautiful song, but if 6 people sing the same song at auditions, five are likely to be eliminated.

  3. Wear the attire you'd be wearing at the show.

  4. Come prepared and arrive early enough to give yourself time to get organized and warmed up.

  5. Have a second song ready in case you are selected for the Count-down show.
