Reston Community Players
RCP is pleased to announce auditions for The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) which is part of our new Apprentice Program. These auditions are open to any student in 7th through 12th grade as of the 2021-22 school year (or ages 12-18). Please note there are no roles available for adults.
*Please note that all participants are required to be fully vaccinated (or in the process of being fully vaccinated) by August 1, 2021.*
Sign up for a time slot below. For the audition, you are asked to prepare the following:
- A 32 bar cut of ANY musical theater song. Please bring sheet music in the appropriate key and have your cut clearly marked. We will provide an accompanist but will not be able to transcribe your music.
- A 1-minute comedic monologue.
Please be dressed and ready to move in comfortable clothes and dance/movement shoes. Auditionees will learn a short movement combination during the audition.
On the day of auditions, please do not enter the facility more than 15 minutes prior to your audition time. Parents are asked to wait outside or in the car in order to reduce crowding. We ask that everyone not actively performing/auditioning, please wear masks. The audition will take the full time allotted (1 hr. 15 mins).
Auditions will be held at RCP's Rehearsal Hall and Scene Shop located at 266 Sunset Park Drive, Herndon, VA 20170. We are in the Sunset Business Park.
Also, please fill out our online Audition Form BEFORE arriving for your audition. You will be asked to provide a complete list of your conflicts from August-November 7, 2021. BE HONEST. Having conflicts is not a dealbreaker, but being dishonest about them is. It is important for us to know what everyone's availability is so that we can create an efficient rehearsal schedule.

MORE ABOUT THE APPRENTICE PROGRAM
RCP’s Apprentice Program is a new unique program that combines RCP’s high-quality theatrical productions with a focus on student education that seeks to engage local youth in community theatre and provide them with hands-on experience and training in all aspects of mounting a mainstage musical theatre production.
Students cast in the Performance Track of this program will work alongside RCP's technical and performance artists and will be trained in valuable skills such as rehearsal and performance etiquette and procedures, character development, technique, as well as solo and ensemble work. Performance Track participants will also learn about each of the production areas and how they collaborate to form the finished performance.
There is a participation fee for this program of $300. Please visit www.restonplayers.org/apprenticeprogram for more information.
