We are still looking for material. We encourage and will welcome submissions until February 25 (and a little later if they are hilarious).
Hexagon is creating its next production Hexagon 2023: The Sedition Edition.
We are looking for sketches, songs, lyrics (parodies included) that are 2-3 minutes long. On any subject. (There is a list below of “possible” subjects but any other subject is absolutely OK .)
We are also looking for newsbreaks – One to two line funny bits or jokes done as a news item. It must have the sound of a serious news item. There is also a screen behind the newsbreak desk so if there is some visual that would enhance the humor, please include it when you submit the newsbreak. Please indicate in your email that it is a newsbreak so I don’t think it is a regular submission. I would like most of the newsbreaks by April 16th. However, newsbreaks can be submitted right up to closing night. The show closes on Saturday April 29. So, if you’re interested send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
