Call for Performers: Waypoints Fundraiser



Swamp Rat Experience (SRE) is proud to produce the 2024 Waypoints fundraiser, taking place at the Suncor Energy Centre for the Performing Arts on Friday, February 23, 2024. Waypoints is a non-profit in the Wood Buffalo region helping individuals affected by domestic, family and sexual violence. This is an interactive experience where the audience will be served food and drinks while they are treated to stunning performances and improvised interactions. The cast, crew and Artistic Team are made up of artists local to Wood Buffalo. SRE is donating part of the production fee as an in-kind contribution to support Waypoints’ important work in our community.




  • Must be a Wood Buffalo resident for the duration of the project

  • Must be 18 years of age or older



SRE is looking to contract seven individual artists or groups to be a part of the 2024 Waypoints fundraiser taking place at the Suncor Energy Centre of the Performing Arts on Friday, February 23, 2024. Performers must be available for dress rehearsal on February 22 between 5 PM – 10 PM. This includes preparing two numbers, which can consist of music, dance, acrobatics, comedy, theatre performances, or other types of performance art not listed. It also includes improvised interactions with fellow cast members, hosts, and the audience. The event has an elimination component, so not all artists will be able to perform both of their prepared numbers. Those who make it to the third and final round will be assigned their final number by chance by drawing it from a hat.

  • Optional rehearsals/coaching will be offered during the months of January and February, 2024



Your submission needs to include the following:

  • 2 proposed numbers OR artistic strengths (we can help you decide what to perform)

  • A bit about yourself

  • Contact information

  • Relevant support material



This opportunity pays $250 (inclusive of GST).




Submissions to be sent to hanna@swampratexperience.com. Submissions must be received by 12:00 PM (noon) on December 30, 2023. Late submissions will not be considered.
