Auditioners should prepare a song, or excerpt, to show your vocal strength. If you pick one of the excerpts provided in our 'audition packet' we have an electronic accompaniment. If you choose another song, please bring your own accompanist.
(You may be stopped before finishing your song; this does not mean criticism - it just means you have been heard).
You will be asked to do a 'cold read'- look over a page or two of dialogue, then read a part (or parts) with theatrical expression.
You may be asked to do some brief pantomime or improvisation.
For chorus/ensemble roles: Gravediggers, Villagers, Medical Students, Passengers, Mad Scientists, Monsters
You will be asked to sing, alone or in a group as you prefer. (A song may be taught for this purpose)
A short dance routine will be taught to the group - to assess available dance skills applicable to our choreography.
