 AUDITIONS

Once you sign up for a slot, you will receive emails with important audition related information so please ensure your contact information is correct.  All the information you need to know to sign up is below! 

 

 

Audition information:

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time slot to check-in and receive a number, fill out an audition form (or you may bring it with you), get your picture taken, and calm your nerves!.  We would like you to bring a list of ALL of your conflicts from December 10th, 2018 through February 17th, 2019.  We understand that things come up that you cannot plan for and we will work with you in those situations. However, please do not leave something off of your conflict sheet hoping we will overlook it once you are cast. We reserve the right change or remove casting decisions due to undisclosed conflicts at any time. 
 
Please prepare a 30-60 second song for auditions - it can be any song that you feel best shows off your voice!  An accompanist will be provided - all you need to do is bring your sheet music.  We may choose one part we would like to hear you read, but not everyone will read.   Please put ALL parts you are interested in on your audition sheet (remember- you will fill this out either before you arrive or when you get there).  You will also be taught a short movement piece, so please wear comfortable clothing and appropriate shoes. Remember - the best accessory you can bring with you to auditions is your SMILE!  Also - if you know how to tap, be sure to indicate that on your sheet! 
 
At the end of each audition slot, we will post the numbers of the children we are calling back. If you do not get called back that does not mean you were not cast for the show! At the moment, callbacks will be held Sunday,  December 9th at noon.  
 
We are planning on making the calls for the show by 9 pm on Sunday, December 9th. If you are not cast, you will receive an email. EVERYONE will have rehearsal starting on Monday, December 10th at 6:00 p.m.for headshots and a mandatory parent meeting from 6-6:30 p.m. and a read/sing through from 6:30-8:30 p.m.  We will have our tentative calendar available at auditions, but no rehearsals will start earlier than 6 p.m. until tech week.  Again - be sure to indicate any rehearsal conflicts on your audition sheet!
 
Let us know if you have any questions!  We look forward to seeing you on the 8th!

Lucille is Junie B.’s former best friend who has moved on to new friendships. Poised, put together, and probably a bit spoiled, Lucille controls and plans everything she does – quite the opposite of Junie B.’s bold impulsiveness.   Actress needs to be confident.
