SERIES DESCRIPTION: The Elevate Show is a variety show that explores how our everyday stories connect with the ultimate story God has been writing. The host is joined by a sidekick and a rotating cast of guests each week for a mix of scripted and improvised scenes, which include creative storytelling segments and fun in-studio games.


SIDEKICK: Any age, any ethnicity, male or female. This person will be present in virtually every episode, similar to how Higgins appears in The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. The sidekick brings energy to the show by bantering with the host, playing games and acting out Bible stories, and providing contrast to the host and guests' personalities. This person is fun, quick-witted, and quippy (without delving into harsh sarcasm or inappropriate humor) while still having the maturity needed to be able to shift to serious topics with ease.

Sides will be sent by email, along with the audition address, by the end of the work day on Wednesday, July 21.

Auditions will be reading of sides, and some improv; no monologues.
