Topic: S.A.M. 2009 annual convention: Stars of Tomorrow!
Message: Posted by: afuntimevent (Dec 22, 2008 08:51PM)
The S.A.M. is seeking young performers for the Stars of Tomorrow Show, a professional stage show that features magicians ages 7-17 at the annual S.A.M. National Convention. The convention takes place July 15-18, 2009, in Buffalo New York.

To audition, young magicians should submit an application, a video or DVD of the stage act (about five to ten minutes in length) that they would like to perform in the show, a biography and a photo for the convention program. Young magicians interested in emceeing the show should also include a sampling of introductions, jokes, and emcee bits in their videos. No fire may be used. The deadline for receiving applications is April 20, 2009.

The Stars of Tomorrow Show has become one of the most popular events at the annual convention. Performing in it allows young magicians to showcase their talent and to experience the magic of the convention. Each performer will be paid and will receive two free convention registrations (one for the performer, another for a parent), plus a year’s membership in the Society of Young Magicians.

Please encourage young magicians to audition for the show, help them polish their acts and submit their applications.

For information and an application form, please contact Marlene Clark, 435 Main St., Durham, CT 06422; 860-349-8149; afuntime@comcast.net; or visit the S.Y.M. website at http://www.magicsym.com and click on the “Stars of Tomorrow” photo.

Is fire magic allowed?

I don't believe fire will be allowed, but a small piece of flash paper may not be a problem.
If you have any questions, you can contact me directly at afuntime@comcast.net

How many young magicians will be chosen to perform?

Hi, Matt -
The show usually features 5 or 6 acts.
It's a great place to showcase your talent to a very supportive audience - magicians know how hard it is to prepare a stage act.
I hope you consider submitting an audition tape. If you're selected, you get 2 free registrations. You also will get to meet magicians from all over the world, and there are special events planned just for young magicians, including hang-out time. Beside, the convention will be great, especially with the day trip to Canada for magic and sight-seeing.
Hope to see you there -

Marlene

I hope to be there. The only problem is that Tannens Magic Camp is the same week. I will talk to my family about which one they think I should do.

Thanks for the help,
Matt

Hi I was wondering if you had to be a member of the sym and the sam to be part of this

Hi,

You don't have to be a member of either the S.A.M. or the S.Y.M. to perform in the Stars of Tomorrow Show.

If you perform in the show you will be paid, you will receive a free registration for yourself and a parent, *and* you will receive a year's membership in the S.Y.M.

You don't have to belong to the S.Y.M. or S.A.M. to attend the convention, either. Nonmembers will receive a one-year membership with their registrations.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me.

In Magic -
