PREPARATION:
SONG –
Please prepare a brief song showing range and personality. Your audition song should be contemporary musical theater from the 1960s-present or a tune from the 1920s vaudeville era.
DANCE-
Those who want to be considered for a dancing role will be taught a short combination. Come dressed to move…and no baggy clothes please! There are very few roles for non-dancers so I would attempt the dance even if you have two left feet!
HELPFUL HINTS: Songs by composers Kander & Ebb (The Rink, Cabaret, etc.), Maltby & Shire (Closer Than Ever) and Schmidt & Jones (Fantastiks, Celebration, etc.) would all be smart choices. You may sing from the show, but please no “All That Jazz.” I am looking to see your personality, how you tell a story, and your vocal range. Don’t be nervous, be you!
If you have questions, need music or advice, feel free to stop by the theatre or e-mail Adam . We want you to succeed, so don’t be shy!
Those interested in being light operators, set painters or volunteers, please contact Adam at 442-4270 or email him.
