Description

ALL CAST AND CREW MUST BE VACCINATED FOR COVID-19

This is an “open call” audition. Non-Equity, NO PAY

Bring a performing resume if you have one (not required)

Please prepare one (1) minute of a standard musical theatre song, in the style of the show, and bring an alternate selection as a backup (in some cases, the casting team may wish to hear more). Do not sing a song from the show. Do not sing a cappella. Bring sheet music in your key; an accompanist will be provided. A CD or music device with an accompaniment-only track is also acceptable, provided it is edited and cued correctly, and saved locally (please no YouTube recordings or anything that relies on a wireless signal). Be prepared to learn a short dance combination – please bring or wear comfortable dance attire. Anyone auditioning will be required to learn a brief dance/movement combination (except for the roles of Doc, Schrank, Krupke, and Glad Hand). There may be cold readings from the script at the auditions if time permits.

When auditioning, please list any and all commitments and/or conflicts during the rehearsal period – even on days not currently listed as rehearsal days. To the greatest extent possible, the schedule will be built around the cast’s availability. No additional conflicts will be accepted after casting, and no conflicts will be accepted for performance dates or the week before opening. The only way we would consider performance conflicts would be if we were to double-cast a role; this is not currently the intent, but it is not impossible. Please just be upfront with us, and we will afford you the same courtesy.

Post-audition feedback will not be given.
