Audition Pieces...

Hi Everyone...
To the right you'll see some .pdf files to download - it is the sheet music to what you will be asked to sing in the auditions. It'd be a good idea to buy the album so you have an idea of what this stuff sounds like.

Here is a brief synopsis of voice parts:

Millie - Mezzo/Belter. Must belt a C
Dorothy - Soprano. Should have some "legit" tone quality, as well as light jazz
Meers - Alto, must be able to speak in a charicature Chinese accent
Muzzy - Mezzo/Belter. Need a heavy/dirty jazz belt. Lower voice part than Millie

Jimmy - Tenor. High G, light tone, light on his feet
Graydon - Baritone. Mid-range male part (interested in Ching Ho or Bun Foo.. sing this part)

Starting after Thanksgiving, I will put up a sign-up sheet for 20 minute slots to coach anyone interested. See the stage door. Please understand "coaching" is not "teaching parts." Please come prepared.

There will be a general song teach for all parts at some point before auditions. Please check this site, as well as the stage door regularly for any updates. (Also, here's another plug for an RSS feed reader). www.google.com/reader

I have a feeling that the dance audition will be competitive - we are limited to slots - so be prepared. Come to the first dance workshop, next Wednesday December 3rd.

See you soon, and have a great Thanksgiving!

Crew Interviews and Cast auditions

Hi Everyone,
On Monday November 24th, we will get together and talk about audition specifics. I will have everything laid out by then. Also at that time, you will get a copy of:
  1. Contract to be signed/returned at your audition
  2. Copy of audition song (sheet music)
  3. T-Shirt order form,
  4. Car-wash fundraiser order form
  5. DVD order form
  6. Showbill advertisement ordering information
Please note, all files that I have for you will be available on the right hand side of this page.
Right now I'm putting up the Crew List without any names in it. I will just put names in after interviews.
A little bit later (maybe tomorrow), I will be putting a cast list up (without your names in it, yet) So that you can see what is available.
I'm making these available now, but please realize they could change after auditions/interviews.
