California Revels

2022 Auditions - Adult Chorus and Young Performers Auditions, August 20 & 21, 2022

Covid safety protocols will be in place for auditions

Each Fall, California Revels puts together a chorus totaling dozens. Participating in Revels is the highlight of their season, joining together in community, transporting them to another time, and giving them comfort in the darkest days of the year.

This year, a Chinese opera star and her Grandmother's ghost, medicine show mountebanks, and revelers from every community in post-Gold Rush California are scrambling up the Santa Cruz mountains to watch the sun set between the famous Solstice Stones. Forbidden love, suspicious remedies, and a multiplicity of music, dance, and circus ensue.

Adult Chorus and Young Performers

Who:   Performers age 13+

When: Saturday August 20th 12:00noon – 5:00pm

          Sunday August 21st  12:00 noon – 2:30pm

Adult & Teen (Young Performer) Chorus vocal auditions for the Christmas Revels are done by reservation in small groups. Prepare a short folk or classical song, 1-2 minutes in length, one you know well. We do not recommend singing to a recording. A cappella is fine. Your 15-minute vocal audition will include a few vocal scales and exercises and reading a short piece with your audition group. Bring possible conflicts to write on your application. We will teach you a short dance to audition if you intend to dance in the performance. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Groups will be approximately 2:00pm and 4:00pm on Saturday, and once on Sunday around 1:30. 

Children's Chorus

Who:   Children ages 7-12

   When: Sunday August 21st 3:30 – 5:00pm   Please be prompt.

Where: Choir Room, First Congregational Church Oakland

2501 Harrison Street Oakland, CA  94612

We are pleased to invite children to audition for the Christmas Revels. 

Children do not have scheduled auditions but are asked to email the production manager; see below.

You should plan to stay the full 90 minutes depending on

how groupings work out. Children will sing with a small group of other potential

cast members in the order they arrive and sign in.

Prepare two unaccompanied songs, one being “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”.

Please bring any advance notification of possible rehearsal or performance conflicts.

There will be a short dance audition after the singing. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes.

Parents and children should be prepared to stay for the entire time as we may wish to hear groups of children together, or to have children read lines.

General commitment for all: Mondays 7pm beginning 9/26, company Retreat Saturday October 1st,

most November weekends beginning 11/12.

Tech and Dress Rehearsals: days or eves begin approximately December 3.
