March 16h and callbacks on March 17th both at 12:30
Please arrive on time as a dance combination will be taught to everyone at the same time to begin auditions. You may be asked to stay after the vocal audition to work with other performers. (we expect a substantial turnout)
A Common Ground
33 Crosby Street
Danbury, CT 06810
WHAT TO PREPARE:
Bring a headshot and resume. Photos of any kind are fine if you do not have a headshot.
While this is atypical for my auditions, I will be asking performers to sing ONLY pieces from the show. A list of song choices is provided below. Additional duos may be added for callbacks.
Dress comfortably so you are able to move. There is no need to change for the vocal audition.
WE WILL NOT NECESSARILY BE LOOKING TO FOLLOW RACIAL CASTING OF THE ORIGINAL BROADWAY PRODUCTION.
Most importantly, I am looking to cast performers who are willing to consistently bring the energy, passion and LOVE that are essential to maximizing the potential of this remarkable piece.
WHEN ARE REHEARSALS?
Rehearsals will be weekday evenings at 6:30 starting mid may. There will most likely be one weekend tech rehearsal that will be scheduled well in advance.
All performances and rehearsals will be held at TBTA.
HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE?
18 and up
WHY ARE AUDITIONS OFF SITE?
The beautiful studio spaces at A Common Ground will allow us to spread out and conduct various parts of the audition at the same time.
4 weeks of July
SONGS TO CHOOSE FROM FOR AUDITIONS:
(instrumental tracks will be provided...you can find instrumental versions of all of them on youtube to prepare)
