Audition preparation notes:

  1. Dance:   Wear comfortable clothes and shoes- something which allows you to move freely.

You will be taught a short piece of choreography

Dance training is admired, but not required;  ability to move  and “sell it” is more important.

  1. Music: Prepare approx. 32 measures from a Broadway musical, either ballad or up-tempo.

(Please bring sheet music for the accompanist, who will be provided.)

If you are called-back (Sunday*) you may be asked to sing a contrasting piece of music than at auditions

____________________________

You may be dismissed after the first two pieces of the process if the directors have seen enough (i.e.-they are considering you for a chorus role, and don’t need to hear you read)

  1. Acting:  Readings from the script.

 

What to bring:

  • A resumé highlighting theatrical & musical background (if you have one)
  • A detailed list of any possible conflicts to the rehearsal schedule

(Rehearsals begin in June and will be scheduled weekday evenings, between the hours of  6pm and 10pm + occasional an Saturday)

*Call-backs will take place on Sunday, May 14 at 7:00pm
