Upcoming Auditions and Productions
Though auditions have passed for primary roles, you can still enroll and be part of the ensemble cast which plays a big role in the telling of this amazing story.
Rehearsals start Monday, June 26.
Performances are Friday, July 28 @ 7pm and Saturday, July 29 @ 2pm.
Tuition for the Mon-Fri, five-week camp is $495.
Parents, the majority of our costs are all upfront (i.e. royalty payments, music scripts and soundtracks, stage props, construction materials, costumes, advertising and promotions venue rentals, programs, tickets, staff, etcetera).
Each child's tuition fee helps distribute the cost of the production among the whole group. Believe us, musicals are expensive.
Arrive 15 minutes early and check in. There will be paperwork to fill out.
Dress nicely. Look sharp. Be practiced and prepared.
Have a character monologue, at least a paragraph or two, fully memorized. Pick something which will show your versatility and range of emotion. Also, pick a monologue which best matches the character for which you are auditioning.
Have 16 measures of a musical theater song ready to sing A Cappella or with karaoke or sound track back up provided on your cell phone. No other vocals can be on the karaoke track.
In the audition, introduce yourself, the role you want to audition for:
"Hello, my name is _________, and I am auditioning for the role of _______________.
Intro your monologue:
"My monologue is from ________________."
Intro your song:
"I am singing______________, from the musical_____________."
When finished, say, "Thank you."
Wait for any questions that the director(s) may have for you.
BE FRIENDLY and ENTHUSIASTIC! If the director asks you to deliver the lines in another way, be ready and be agreeable.
Be sure and project and act out what you are saying or singing.
Know we want you to succeed, so we are rooting for you to do a great job.
