Friday, December 7th, 2018 Audition Clarification
For your Cabaret audition, it is OK to use a backing track and a speaker, however, if you are auditioning for Little Women, you must bring sheet music for the accompanist to play piano for you! Sorry for any inconveniences this last minute announcement may have caused. Break a leg at auditions! You've got this! (:
Monday, December 3rd, 2018 Dance Call Info.
It has been confirmed that there will be a dance call, on Wednesday, December 12th, from 3-6:PM. If you are auditioning for either the Musical, or the Cabaret, (or both), you will need to be there!
Friday, November 30th, 2018 Choreography
Hey everyone! We are doing something a bit different from Cabaret last year, instead of having multiple student choreographers Katie, Bella, and Taylor will be blocking and choreographing all of the songs and want 1 or 2 dance captains who can help us teach our choreo to the cast!
If you are interested in being a dance captain, please email Taylor, Katie, and Bella letting us know you are interested, be at dance call Wednesday, December 12, 2018 3-5:PM, (anyone auditioning needs to be there), then check the cast list and there will be more specifics on who the dance captains are and what they will be doing.
Tuesday, November 28th, 2018 Info for Cabaret Auditions
Auditions are Monday, December 10th and Tuesday, December 11th, and will begin each day at 3:PM. BE THERE EARLY, we are often ahead of schedule, so there is a chance you will audition before the time you originally signed up for, and it also shows your professionalism and preparation to the stage managers and directors. While you are waiting to audition, please fill out an audition form (Stage managers will be handing them out in front of the black box theater or you can print them online).
What do you need to prepare for your audition for Cabaret?
1. Come to Play Production on Thursday, November 29th from 2-3pm for our Audition Workshop!
2. Sign up for an audition time slot, the sheet is outside the BlackBox on the door!
3. Find yourself a monologue, this should be from a play, and should be a minute long or less. There are countless resources for finding the perfect monologue, you can look through plays, (there is a rolling cart, rolling around in the BlackBox and A130 with a lot), and you can even go online and search for one that's right for you! Use whatever monologue that suits you well as an actor, but here's a pro-tip, if you are solely auditioning for the Miscast Cabaret, please prepare a comedic monologue because our songs are pretty dang goofy, but if you are auditioning for both the musical, Little Women, AND the Miscast, then just prepare whatever you think will be best for your audition for the musical, (which might be more dramatic).
4. Find yourself a song, and prepare 16-32 bars, or a minute in length, this must be from a musical, so choose one of your favorite show tunes! You will need to print out sheet music for the pianist to accompany you at your audition. Do your best to find sheet music for the song you're auditioning with, but if you can't find sheet music, you can use a digital backing track, but you need to provide your own speaker and device. This is totally acceptable for the Miscast Cabaret Auditions, but we don't know if it is for the Musical auditions, hopefully we will know soon (:
5. Now that you know what material you will be using for your audition, you need to be able to properly introduce and represent yourself at the audition, you do this by Slating. Slating is simple, all you need to say is "Hello, my name is ______, and I will be performing a monologue from ______play, by ______playwright, as ______role. Then I will be singing ______song, from ______musical, by ______composer." Though this is a simple process, this is the first impression you give of yourself at the audition.
6. Now that you've auditioned with your amazing singing and acting, it's time for Dance Call, we believe this will happen the day after auditions, on Wednesday, December 12th, but if we are wrong we will let you know! When you are at dance call, wear appropriate clothes and shoes that you can MOVE and SWEAT in!
What's next? Callbacks! More info to come...
