AUDITION FORMS TO DOWNLOAD/FILL OUT
Auditions are slightly different this year. Instead of choosing from one of three options there is only one option to choose from. Everyone will audition with the song “Fancy Dress”. You will either choose the “Male Character” or “Female Character” option. In this song, all principal characters are introduced so therefore you will sing one song, but will represent each character in that song. So for example, for the “Fancy Dress (Female Character)” audition piece, you will sing all six female characters (Mrs. Tottendale, Kitty, Gangsters, Janet, Chaperone, and Trix) in the same song. For the audition, you will be placed in groups of 6 and you will each be assigned one of the characters to sing. The second time through you will be assigned a different character to sing. We will keep rotating until all 6 members have sung all 6 characters. Then a new group of 6 will be called up to audition.
When you audition for us we are looking for different character choices with each character. Don’t sing each character the same way. Make it fun and make bold and clear choices! We strongly suggest that you research the characters to have a better understanding of each one and how to perform that character.
The three additional songs for Janet, Drowsy, and Trix are here for you to prepare ahead of time in case we need to hear you sing it for the callback audition on Nov. 22nd. These are NOT an option for you to use as your primary audition on the 21st. Everyone must sing the song Fancy Dress as their primary audition. Please note that not everyone will get the chance to sing these songs, but it is always best to be prepared.
