Are you an Alternative Queen?
Sick of being judged by your looks? Got what it takes to impress a roomful of people with nothing but the sheer size of your talent, personality or even ego? Then sign up for your chance to be crowned the second Alternative Queen of Reading!
On March 7 2014, in honour of International Women’s Day on March 8, Shehnai will play host to a celebration of all that is different. We welcome all acts and talents – all we ask is that you do something related to the theme we’ll be announcing shortly. It doesn’t have to be PG-rated but we do ask that it’s respectful – after all, it’s meant to celebrate, not denigrate…
And yes, we know we’re honouring International Women’s Day – but Alternative Queen of Reading is open to EVERYbody – male, female, trans, straight, gay, bi, etc. So long as you’re happy to stand in front of an audience, then we want to hear from you!
We would like this event to represent as broad a range of contestants as possible: the venue is wheelchair accessible and we will work to cater for the accessibility needs of our contestants – please specify any needs in the “technical requirements” section of the application form. Do contact us with any questions and concerns via email@example.com
Contestants will be asked to meet with the selection panel in February (date tbc), where you will be quizzed on your character and why you’d make a great Alternative Queen of Reading!
We aim to select up to 8 lucky contestants who will be asked to perfect their look and come along to the final on Friday 7 March 2014.
So check back for confirmation of the theme, then follow the link below to fill in the application form and remember to press ‘Done’ when complete.
Deadline for applications is Sunday 2 Feb 2014.
