Broadway Café: Miscast

Mar 04, 2023 - Mar 04, 2023 | Studio | 8 p.m.

Rejoice! Everyone’s favourite “Miscast Edition” of Broadway Café, the Segal Centre’s live showtune karaoke night, is back. One of our most popular events, “Miscast” asks you to sign-up and sing something you would not be cast for. Hosted by David Noel and Dakota Jamal Wellman, this fun event is sure to be a night to remember!

HOW IT WORKS:

  • VIRTUAL SIGN UP: you must sign-up to sing at the link above before 4 p.m. the day of the event.
  • The order of performances will be drawn at random live the night of the event. We’ll do our best to get to as many singers as possible, you can help us by picking a song that is under 3 – 4 minutes. 
  • When the hosts call your name, you will have a chance to consult with the pianist before singing. All our pianists are experts at sight-reading and will be able to accompany you and make you feel comfortable. 
  • Our “one song rule” remains in effect. We will let everyone sing once before anyone can sing a second time. Solos, duets, trios, group songs all count as your one song, so choose wisely.
  • A list of our song books does not exist unfortunately. If you have a specific song you’d like to sing we’d recommend bringing your own sheet music to be sure. 
  • The only exception to this rule is preview numbers of upcoming musicals. These must be booked in advance and will not count towards your “one song”. We will even promote your production on our Broadway Café Facebook page. For more info or to reserve a preview spot, message us on social media or send an email to mthompson@segalcentre.org 
  • The themes are just for fun! Use the prompt as inspo or sing whatever your heart desires.
  • You can upload a pdf of your sheet music on the sign-up sheet or bring your sheet music on double sided and three-hole punched paper. 
  • Seating is general admission. This is not a show so you can feel free to get up and move around as needed. The bar will be open throughout and concessions are allowed in the theatre.
  • Broadway Café is a warm, supportive, and welcoming environment open to singers of all skill levels. We will cheer you on and be your back-up singers no matter what!
  • Amongst its many perks, Class Act offers members -50% off on tickets to Broadway Café as well as a -10% at the bar. Find out more about this amazing subscription package for students and under 30. 
  • This event is 16+ only
