Please note that these Season General Auditions are for all four shows in our 2019/2020 season but they will be the only audition for Man of La Mancha. We will hold additional auditions for all other productions on an as needed basis. If we find everything we're looking for at these auditions for all of the shows this season (which is our goal) we will not have individual show auditions later during the season.

Pay:     There will be a $350 performance stipend provided for each production

Rehearsals start:           

Rehearsals for each production will start approximately 5-6 weeks prior to the opening performance date.

Audition Requirements:

Dance Call
As the dance call is first on both days, please arrive in enough time to warm up and be ready to dance. The dance call will start promplty at the times indicated. Please wear dance appropriate clothes and shoes. All females should wear character heels if possible. There will be a jazz routine and a tap routine taught at the dance call. If you do not tap, that is ok, the tapping will be for a specific number in A Christmas Carol.

Singing/Acting Call
Audition times must be reserved and will be assigned every 5 minutes. Please prepare two vocal selection of 32 bars or less. You will need to have sheet music in the proper key; an accompanist will be provided. Please have your sheet music ready and marked up so that we can keep the audition schedule running on time. No CDs or acapella singing will be allowed. You may also be asked to do a monologue not to exceed 1 minute, so please have one ready. If you are not asked to do a monologue is does not mean you are not being considered for any specific role. It just means we don't need to see a monologue from you at these generals.
