All rehearsals and performances will be held at the Palace Theater. Rehearsals will generally be held Monday through Thursday, from 7:00-10:00 pm, and Saturdays from 1:00-5:00 pm. However, it's possible that we will schedule rehearsals on some Sundays as well so we are asking for everyone's availability for the possible alternative times up front.
Auditioners are asked to email their name and telephone number to: email@example.com to sign up for the auditions on April 14th from 2-5pm, or April 15th from 6-9pm. (You must also be available on Monday, April 16th for the dance auditions)
AUDITIONS will consist of 3 parts:
1. A memorized monologue, no more than 1-2 minutes in length. This can be from any play, musical, movie, book, or personal experience. It must be memorized. While there are many ensemble roles with lots of dialogue, there are also many that have no lines at all. So, if you'd prefer not to perform a monologue, you can just perform a song and attend the dance portion of the audition. If you do not audition with a monologue, you will not be considered for a speaking role.
2. Please prepare 16 bars of a song from a musical that demonstrates your range. An accompanist will be provided, please bring a copy of your sheet music. Songs from the show are welcome as audition pieces, as well as any other stylistically appropriate tunes. You may also bring your own accompaniment on CD. However, please make sure there are no recorded vocals. You may NOT sing A cappella.
3. Dance: On Monday night, you will be taught a dance to be performed in small groups.
Every person in this show will dance, so you must attend the dance audition.
7:00pm - 7:45pm Kids - any shoes (ballet, jazz, sneakers)
7:45pm - 8:30pm Women - character or jazz shoes (sneakers are ok)
8:30pm - 9:15pm Men - any shoes (jazz, character, sneakers)
Do NOT come to this audition unprepared. It will be nearly impossible to consider you for a role if you do. You can save time on the audition days by downloading, printing, and filling out a copy of the audition form and conflict calendar. The links can be found HERE **It is critical that you let us know all of your conflicts at the auditions. We will be unable to accept conflicts brought to us after casting is done.
