Who thought that a singing competition was a good idea for a nonprofit fundraiser? Now six nonprofit coworkers with a casual singing group have just one week to turn their setlist into something professional. They will have to wow the judges with their vocal talents if they can hope to land the multi-million dollar grant that will keep the doors open on their community organization. Tensions will mount, drama will ensue, and everyone will sing to express their true feelings!
Sing Your Heart Out is a live-action game for five players about a singing group composed of very dramatic people. Think Glee, Pitch Perfect, Fame, and A Chorus Line.
Designed by Benjamin Rosenbaum and Jamey Harvey
Organized by Jon Cole and Peregrin Winkle
Sunday 24 February 2019, from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm

Parking on site. Metro Transit lines 5, 14, 30, and 32 stop nearby.
We are requesting a pay-what-you-want goodwill donation ($5 suggested) to support the work of the nonprofit in appreciation for the use of their space. No one will be turned away if they are unable to make a donation.
If you are interested in participating, fill out our Sing Your Heart Out registration form before 11:59 pm on Sunday, 17 February. We’ll let you know if you are in the larp by Monday, 18 February.
In Sing Your Heart Out every character sings their true feelings and transforms, just like in your favorite musical. Players will portray this by singing karaoke three times during play. Bring your enthusiastic singing voice, no particular skill is required.
This particular playset for Sing Your Heart Out is about nonprofit employees, but the system itself is setting agnostic.
In this scene-based larp players will collaborate to create the best scenes for one another. Every character will have a personal arc, but not all of the arcs will be resolved during this play session.
To the extent that it pleases you, dress like a nonprofit employee on a regular work day, something like business casual. Be considerate to wear things that you can still move and sing in!
Our venue is fully ADA compliant and climate-controlled, with gender neutral bathrooms and plenty of seating.
There is no specific content advisory for this larp as the vast majority of content is created by players at the larp itself. By default, we will be shooting for a family-friendly TV show level of content. At the beginning of the of play we will establish some content boundaries and determine a level for dramatic revelations that suits the attending players.
