Civic Presents: Young Artist Showcase

Young Artist Showcase

When the world paused in March, so did Spokane Civic Theatre productions and operations. No auditions, classes, performances, production meetings, or rehearsals.

Although currently unable to produce shows and provide performing arts training, we are ecstatic to announce Civic Presents — Civic’s virtual Main Stage, a streaming celebration of our community’s creative vibrancy.

Where installments will vary in subject, material and theme, all performances will be created and performed by our community.

For Civic Presents debut, we’re focusing on young artists and their creative discoveries, interests and successes.

Civic Presents: Young Artist Showcase will premiere on September 25 at 7:30 PM.

If you are currently 12 – 19 years old and have participated in a Civic or Civic Academy class, workshop and/or show, you are eligible to participate!


  • Rehearse, perform and film up to two (2) minutes of a monologue or song introduced or inspired by something that you have experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please pick material that is exemplary of your talent, encourages growth and excites you to perform.
  • Performances will be edited together to create a seamless virtual showcase, as though we are on a stage with blocking and blackouts.
  • Details to participate in an optional closing musical ensemble number will be emailed upon indicating interest on submission form.
  • Please perform off-book.
  • If you are performing a song, please source music (accompaniment, track) and manage volume levels so that you can be heard clearly throughout the performance.
  • Please be creative and selective with mise-en-scène (costumes, props, sets).
  • No branded costumes or props please (logos, etc.).
  • Please do not perform or use mature content or language.
  • Please film your up to two (2) minute performance horizontally and in the highest resolution possible (on most smartphones, go to Settings > Camera for resolution options).
  • If you would like to participate but need help (material, filming, etc.), please email by September 5. Directors are available and interested. We want to support you and produce a performance to be proud of.

Civic Presents: Young Artist Showcase submission window closes September 13.
