Legends & Lanterns™/Saint Charles Christmas Traditions®

2021 FESTIVAL SINGER Auditions

We are only seeking Singers at this audition. Information for CHARACTER PERFORMER auditions can be found here:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0c48a8ac22a4f8c52-2021

The Greater Saint Charles Convention and Visitors Bureau seeks creative, diverse, and energetic storytellers to help bring history to life as singers during the 2021 Halloween and Christmas celebrations along historic Main Street.

FESTIVAL SINGERS Auditions: By appointment Sunday, May 16th and Thursday, May 20th (sign up for an audition time slot below). NOTE: If after signing up for an audition appointment, you can no longer attend, please contact Festival Director Ryan Cooper at [email protected] or delete your appointment so that it may be freed up for others.

Audition Location: Saint Charles Tourism Center (lower level) 230 South Main Street Saint Charles, MO 63301

Compensation: All positions start at the rate of $11.19 an hour for all rehearsals and performances.

Role Requirements: Singing roles require an outgoing, creative personality, a strong sense of teamwork, a solid musical ability to maintain a harmony line and memorize a musical repertoire. Vocalists should be comfortable developing a character persona and interacting "in character" with festival guests. Both Legends & Lanterns™ and Saint Charles Christmas Traditions® are all-weather festivals that take place entirely outdoors. Positions will require long periods of standing/walking in a variety of weather conditions.

Legends & Lanterns™: A "Spirited" Journey Through Halloween History

Heading into its sixth season, Legends & Lanterns™ brings to life some of the most infamous villains from history and folklore. Two musical groups provide atmosphere: The Angry Villagers (a mixed quintet of bumbling, musical peasants armed with torches and pitchforks) and The Ghouling Stones (an all-female SSAA quartet of living statues...literal "rock" stars).

Saint Charles Christmas Traditions®:

For 47 seasons, Saint Charles Christmas Traditions® has used a unique blend of history, storytelling, and fairytale whimsy to transport visitors back in time to a world of yuletide nostalgia and fantasy. The sounds of the season are brought to life by various singing ensembles that represent different eras in holiday music (from classic Victorian carols to the jazzy standards of the 1940s). Opportunities available for SATB quartets as well as SSA/SSAA/TTBB trios and quartets.

Performance Dates: NOTE: Individuals auditioning for Saint Charles Christmas Traditions® should make every effort to be available for the duration of ALL performance days. While some conflicts can be accommodated, availability will be a deciding factor when casting.

What to Prepare for Your Audition:

If Auditioning for BOTH Festivals or Saint Charles Christmas Traditions® ONLY:  

FEMALE SINGERS: Prepare both the melody and your specific vocal part for WINTER WONDERLAND.  A copy of the music cut and the rehearsal tracks can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/yiaayvgo0hg6cum/AADyERPv270wpi-mJ5b5hTWia?dl=0 

Be prepared to sing with an instrumental recording of the other vocal parts. Singers may be asked to vocalize to present their comfortable range.

MALE SINGERS: Prepare both the melody and your specific vocal part for HERE WE COME A-WASSAILING.  A copy of the music cut and the rehearsal tracks can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/yiaayvgo0hg6cum/AADyERPv270wpi-mJ5b5hTWia?dl=0 

Be prepared to sing with an instrumental recording of the other vocal parts. Singers may be asked to vocalize to present their comfortable range.

If Auditioning for Legends & Lanterns™ ONLY:

FEMALE/MALE SINGERS: Prepare both the melody and your specific vocal part for MEAN GIRLS.  A copy of the music and the rehearsal tracks can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/yiaayvgo0hg6cum/AADyERPv270wpi-mJ5b5hTWia?dl=0 

Be prepared to sing with an instrumental recording of the other vocal parts. Singers may be asked to vocalize to present their comfortable range.

NOTE: If auditioning for both festivals, you do NOT need to prepare this selection from MEAN GIRLS; only WINTER WONDERLAND or HERE WE COME A-WASSAILING.

What to Bring to the Audition:

A full list of conflicts with the festival rehearsal/performance schedule. A current resume and headshot are encouraged but not required. 

Am I Required to Audition for Both Festivals?: No. Though this audition is casting singers for both Legends & Lanterns™ and Saint Charles Christmas Traditions® (and you are welcome to audition for both), if you are only interested in being considered for one, you will note your preference at the end of your appointment sign-up process.

 

We look forward to seeing you at auditions! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to Festival Director Ryan Cooper at [email protected]
