This is an inter generational musical so all ages are encouraged to audition.
During the auditions, you will be asked to do a cold-read from a script for the artistic director. This means you will likely be given a short time (after you arrive for audition) to glance over a section of script and read with others also auditioning. We may have something diﬀerent for young non-readers for this part.
For character names, part descriptions and vocal ranges, please check this link online:
For the musical part of the audition, please sing a verse and chorus of a song. We would prefer a show tune, similar in style to The King and I for those that are teens and older.
If you would like to be considered for a singing role, even if only ever singing in a group/ensemble in the show, you must do a singing audition. There are parts for non-singers as well, but very few. Children’s parts for this show all require singing. For very young children, we highly encourage a parent to audition as well, since a parent will be responsible for young ones backstage. This will be a long show, so patience is helpful for everyone involved.
We will also be looking for backstage crew/help for the show (non-acting roles).
