Ennis Public Theatre
*We are here to help you grow as a performer and that means through the audition process too. It’s ok to be nervous. It’s a great learning experience to audition and we want you to know that we are proud of you for being brave enough to audition. We will help you through the process and we are cheering you on.
Please prepare 30 seconds of a song. Choose a song you enjoy singing - no matter the genre. Make sure you have a karaoke track - don’t sing with a vocal track. Bring your music with you into the audition on a phone or pad - parents are welcome to come in to help with this. It is more helpful for us to hear you sing with a music track than a cappella (with no music).
After you sing, you may be asked to read from a script. You may also be asked to come at another time to do a dance audition - where you’ll learn a few 8 counts of choreography. But first, we just need you to sing 30 seconds of a prepared song.
We are not necessarily looking for the best singing voice - sometimes an expressive performer is a better fit for a role than a perfect singing voice. So have fun, and remember that we are here to help you grow - we don’t expect you to be perfect.
*Callbacks are May 10th - not getting a callback does not mean you aren’t cast.
* The most helpful thing you can do to improve your audition experience is to familiarize yourself with the show. You can watch it on Youtube or listen to the music online.
*Be sure to fill out an audition form online.
- Make sure you are available for the performance dates June 23-28. Shows are in the evenings at 7:30 with one or two matinee performances on Saturday and Sunday. We may have one morning performance on the 27th or 28th.
*Due to the quick nature of this rehearsal process, we can’t work around a lot of conflicts with rehearsals. Please be sure to list all conflicts on your audition form.
