Robert Michael Sanders today announced the performance roster for “Miscast 2014,” a fundraiser hosted by the Aurora Fox Theatre on Sept. 29 as a benefit for the Denver Actors Fund.

“Miscast” is an opportunity for members of the local theatre community to sing songs and act out scenes they would never … ever! … get cast to perform on any legitimate stage. This popular tradition dates back a decade to its origination by the late Next Stage Theatre Company.

Performers were encouraged to apply for one of the 12 available performance slots, either as individuals or in groups. A panel of local luminaries considered the submissions, taking  into account the cleverness and creativity of the pitch.

We don’t want to spoil any surprises, so today we are announcing a partial list of confirmed performers. We’ll keep the songs or scenes they are actually performing a secret. The following list is subject to change. And there are a couple of additional surprises in the works that you’ll just have to see to believe.

“Miscast 2014″ is an opportunity for some of the local theatre community’s top performers to sing songs and act out scenes they would never … ever! … get cast to perform on any legitimate stage. This popular tradition is being brought back by the Aurora Fox for one night only on Sept. 29 as a benefit for the Denver Actors Fund.

It may be all wrong … but it feels so right.

As of today, performers are invited to apply for the 12 available slots. An invited panel of local luminaries will choose the dozen most creative, intriguing or outrageous proposals. Groups are encouraged. The deadline to apply is Sept. 11. The final line-up will be announced on Sept. 15.
