Auditions will consist of script reading, choreographed steps, and singing. The artistic director is asking the applicant to prepare a 1-2 minute presentation that shows theatrical talents to their best advantage. There will be a couple of scripts to read if the auditioner chooses not to bring a preferred script. The choreographer will teach the applicant a small routine and watch the applicant perform it. The music director will have the applicant sing a song of his or her choice. The applicant may choose the song provided by the group or may bring one of his or her own. The music should be of a Broadway or pop style. There will be an accompanist available.
Note: Our cast consists of individuals who are graduating high school seniors and older who volunteer their time to be a part of this wonderful experience.
Please call 217-4911 to set up an appointment (walk-ins also accepted). Actors missing more than 2 rehearsals should expect to be dismissed with regrets from the cast due to the limited rehearsal schedule and our desire for a wonderful show.
