Thank you for your interest in Blue Water Theatre Company's fall Intermediate production of Monty Python's SPAMALOT ([email protected])!
Auditions for actors in 3rd-8th grade will be held on September 12th, 13th, and 15th from 5:00-6:45 pm. Each actor should sign up for one 5-minute audition slot. 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.
1. Prepare a song from a favorite musical using a karaoke track found online (like on YouTube). Musical tracks from two songs from the show will also be posted on Blue Water's website if you'd like to sing a song from the show instead. During the audition, you'll sing about the first minute of the song (not the whole thing).
2. Samples from the script (called sides) will be posted. Practice one of the sides.
3. With the help of a parent/guardian, fill out the Actor Audition Form posted on Blue Water's website before your audition.
On audition day:
- Arrive at the theatre 5-10 minutes before your scheduled time.
- 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 about 1 minute of your prepared song. Next, you'll read from the script. You get to decide which character you'll be. A director or volunteer will read the parts of the other characters.
If you can't make it to auditions at the theatre, you can send a video instead. For your video, state your name, sing about 1 minute of your prepared song, and read one of the sides from the script. You can read all of the parts yourself or read for just one character and ask someone at home to read the parts of the other characters. Email your video to [email protected] by 9:00 pm on Tuesday, September 13th. Include your full name and BWTC AUDITION in the subject line of the email and send it to [email protected]
The cast list will be posted on our website on the audition page by 11:00 pm on Thursday, September 15th. Rehearsals begin on Monday, September 19th.
