Thank you for your interest in Blue Water Theatre Company's fall Main Stage production for high schoolers, Edie Brickell and Steve Martin's Bright Star.
In-person auditions are held at 605 Rice St. E., Wayzata, MN 55391. Street parking is available. Walk up the driveway on Walker Avenue to enter doors at the back.
Auditions for actors in 9th-12th grade will be held on September 6th & 7th from 6:30-9:30 pm. Callbacks will take place on September 8th, if needed. Prepare up to 32 measures of a song from a musical (or a favorite artist) and a 1-2 minute monologue (style of your choosing). You may sing a cappella or play a karaoke version of your song from a cell phone.
Each actor should sign up for one 5-minute audition slot. Come 5-10 minutes before your audition time. Upon arrival:
- Check in at the table in the lobby.
- Hand in a headshot labeled with your name (photocopy of a casual picture is fine) or have your picture taken at check in.
- When your name is called, you will go into the theatre to sing up to 32 bars of your prepared song and recite your monologue.
If you can't make it to auditions at the theatre, you can send a video instead. For your video, state your name, sing up to 32 bars of your prepared song, and recite your monologue. Email your video to [email protected] by 3:00 pm on Wednesday, September 7th. Include your full name and BWTC AUDITION in the subject line of the email.
If the director needs more time to see some of the actors in order to decide who will play which part, they will send an invitation to callbacks via email by 11:00 pm on Wednesday, September 7th. The email will be sent to the actor and the adult listed as Parent/Guardian 1 on the Actor Audition Form. Callbacks will be held from 6:30-8:30 pm on Thursday, September 8th. If you are invited to callbacks, you will stay for the full two hours (if you can). If you aren’t invited to callbacks or can’t come, don’t worry. You may still be cast in the show. The cast list will be posted on our website on the audition page by 11:00 pm on Thursday, September 8th. Rehearsals begin on Monday, September 12th.
