OPTION 2 IN PERSON SINGING:
If you DO NOT want a lead or supporting role, we will bring you in to sing in groups of 5-6 on NOV. 3rd. You can prepare a song with your group or we will ask you to sing a short song like Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star or Happy Birthday.
If you want a lead or supporting singing role you will need to sing 1 minute BY YOURSELF.
- The song is chosen for the GIRLS- “Don’t Rain On My Parade” from Funny Girl or “What baking can do” from Waitress. See attached lyrics and score. We will play a karaoke track for you.
- The song chosen for BOYS- “Dancing through Life” from Wicked. See attached lyrics and score
- If you want a lead or supporting singing/speaking role you must practice your song many, many times in front of people before your audition so you get used to singing in front of people. Record yourself and watch for pulling on your clothes, staring off into space or any other movements that don’t look natural and a part of your character. Your song should be memorized, but if not, DO NOT hide your face with your sheet music!
- ACT WHILE YOU SING and BECOME the CHARACTER you are portraying to us. ☺ We want to see an engaging performance!
- Do not be upset if we cut you off; it just means we have seen what we need to and doesn’t mean you have done a bad job.
- After the audition- Say thank you and don’t talk right away when you leave the room. We can still hear you
- We need confident people to portray these characters and if you aren’t confident, “act” confident! You are coming to audition for a show after all!
Dancing AUDITION NOVEMBER 4th 3:00-4:30
**students can leave once they have auditioned. Time may vary so plan on staying the whole time.
ALL students must attend both in person and online! There will be masks worn at all times. Also, a very small group at a time with social distancing taking place. Everyone will walk through the parking lot doors in the lower parking lot to ensure that the online kids have minimum contact as possible.
***Rehearsals will be via Zoom at first for the online kids but will be in person from 3:00-4:30 for everyone else. Online parents have to be okay with sending their kids in person as the weeks get closer to the performance.
*** Rehearsals are 3-4 days after school depending on your role. Please only audition if you plan to commit.
- If you want to show us additional acting skills along with your singing or if you are auditioning for a character the Does Not Sing, you must prepare a 1 minute monologue that represents the character you want to audition for. It can be comedic or dramatic. Because you don’t know the characters yet you can choose between comedic or dramatic.
- You can find monologues on the internet or from books, movies or television shows. If you’re not sure how to do a monologue, research people performing a monologue on YouTube or on Google.
- ACT WHILE YOU PERFORM! You need to have your song and your monologue memorized.
IF YOU DON’T MAKE CALL BACKS – it is okay! You still might make the cut to the show! It just means we saw what we needed already!!!
November 5th are callbacks. I will POST casting November 6th in front of the office and online in the Churchill website under theatre arts.
