2017-18 Season

October 16-17 @ 5-9 PM: General Music Theater Auditions

Drapkin Studio, Lewis Arts Complex

In these general auditions for all of the season’s music theater pieces, which include many styles of musical expression, we welcome students of all level of experience (or lack thereof) who would like to sing in a piece of music theater, in roles and ensembles of all sizes. Each student will sign up for a five minute slot. Experienced students should prepare a 32-bar cut of a song that shows off their vocal range, acting abilities, and personality. They should bring sheet music with cuts clearly marked. They should bring other song options if they have them. Less experienced and new to music theater students should not be afraid to attend without sheet music. Students can sing a cappella, with their own accompaniment if they bring it (such as a guitar) or can simply sing “Happy Birthday”. We hope to have varying levels of experience in the room.

Call backs for specific shows will be held later in the week and over the weekend.

October 17-18 @ 5-9 PM: General Theater Auditions

Godfrey Kerr Studio and Tilghman Studio

In these general auditions for the theater season, including our Spring Show (which is run as a course for credit), students will sign up for a five minute slot in each audition room. Each audition room will have a few directors from different season events and shows. We especially welcome students who have never performed or haven’t performed since the first grade! Ideally, students should prepare up to one minute of material for performance. You may choose your own performance material or monologue to bring, or you may use one of the pieces that will be posted on the audition website. You may choose to memorize this material but are not obligated to do so. We will also have printed monologues from the plays available in case you decide to join us on the spur of the moment.

Call backs for specific shows will be held later in the week and over the weekend.
