VAMP: Home for the Holidays!

The VAMP Showcase’s beloved Holiday revue features a myriad of stories that come from of our time-honored tradition of squeezing the family together in a confined space, plying on the food and the booze, and waiting for something weird to happen.

October VAMP: “Scared Sh*tless! (vol.5)

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Monday October 5th.

So many things divide the human race and make us different, but at our core we all sleep, eat, and–unless we live in a bubble paid for by a trust fund of helicopter parenting shelter–fill our pants from terror at least a couple times in our lives. It’s good for us. Puts life in perspective. If we survive.

For 5 years in a row now, stories of thrill-seeking, mortal danger, adrenaline rushes, terror, pranks, and other varied and open interpretations of the theme make everyone’s October feel really really Octobery down at the VAMP Showcase.

September VAMP Showcase: Wild Kingdom

After literally years of being asked, threatened, and begged to do a show about animals, behold. September stories are about the cute little bags of murder we call our cats, the dogs we’re never quite sure are all there, and all the other animals that have made our brief little lives on this planet so much weirder.

It’s that magical time again when SSWA’s Production Committee comes together to cast aspersions upon the public and one another’s ideas for future show ideas, and in defiance of all logic, we managed to agree to disagree to agree on this as our 2015 VAMP Showcase season lineup. As always, all themes are open to interpretation, so get writing now!!!

Give us your ideas for 2015’s VAMP themes!

It’s that magical time of the year when we start plotting the upcoming VAMP Showcase season, and we want your help: if you’ve ever thought of a great prompt or theme for a VAMP Showcase, send it our way! It can be anything you feel would generate a good quantity of stories from a decent section of the population (read: not too narrow, like a show only for plumbers.)
