Please prepare 16 to 32 bars of a song that demonstrates your best vocal ability that is not from Bonnie & Clyde. Make sure your sheet music is in the proper key and your cuts clearly marked for the accompanist. Vocalizing will also take place to determine vocal range. Monologues are not necessary-acting ability will be judged by the "selling" of your song. There will not be a dance audition. 

Callbacks will include singing songs from the show and performing cold readings from the script.

Footlighters’ top priority is to provide a safe and healthy environment for all participants in our productions. Therefore, we are respectfully requiring all individuals who are cast in this show to be vaccinated against COVID-19 by the first rehearsal, subject to reasonable accommodations for those with disabilities or sincerely held religious beliefs that preclude vaccination.  If you face a barrier to vaccination due to disability, religious belief, or otherwise have had difficulty with access to vaccination, please contact Mary Stone at [email protected] to discuss reasonable accommodation.

Performance dates: January 20- February 6, 2022
