COVID friendly performance materials for WYSIWYG

The last nine months have been really hard for the theater community. We've all been forced into a whole new way of thinking. I think at first, a lot of us were reluctant to embrace technology, but eventually we started to join in and learn to adapt to the new COVID normal. Then, at some point we started to explore the new paridgm and say "what if"? Well...
Today we announced the availability of our new virtual performance materials specifically designed for theater companies considering COVID-friendly works. The package includes instructions to produce the entire WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) Musical online.

WYSIWYG Six-Minute Performance Teaser

In the first bar scene of WYSIWYG we use a series of segues to get from the joyful drinking game to the imaginary worlds found in the characters minds'. Here's a link to a standard libretto extract for the WYSIWYG bar scene segues (opens a new window). The scene includes the four main characters, but this guide track will allow you to get acclimated to the scene with just one voice.

Once you have a sense for the scene you can download this musical score extract to get started learning the music. It's a great little six minute segment to perform for a back to school project, audition or forensic competition. It's even Covid friendly since it's pretty easy to do it all remotely. Good Luck and please send us your recording and/or tag us so everyone can enjoy your performance! Finally, if you don't have a piano player you'll need the rehearsal track from our Soundcloud account.

Master Track: I'M IN IT FOR GOOD

Here's a master track of "I'm in it for good" sung by Blake Nawa'a (Aug/2020). Completing a song is a long road with a lot of moving parts; from writing to performing, orchestrating, recording, mixing and mastering; fortunately, there's a nice sense of accomplishment as a reward when it's complete.

Rehearsal track for "Some Things Never Change"

Here's our latest rehearsal track for "Some Things Never Change". You should probably download the music for this one since it has 3-part harmonies in the chorus and a lot of directors will use this to see how well you blend with the others in the scene. You can review all the new rehearsal tracks using our WYSIWYG Rehearsal Material Playlist on Soundcloud.
