FIRST ROUND OF AUDITIONS THIS YEAR WILL BE LIVE AND IN PERSON
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 3rd from 9:00am-4:00pm in the HS AUDITORIUM
SIGN UP SHEETS WILL BE POSTED THE "OLD FASHIONED WAY" - ON THE
LIBRARY WINDOWS FRIDAY MORNING FOR YOU TO SIGN UP FOR A TIME
AUDITIONS WILL BE IN 3 PARTS - MONOLOGUE / SONG / DANCE
HOW WILL AUDITIONS RUN?
All students will sign up for a 4 minute time slot to perform your monologue and song. We will be able to see 12 students per hour. Those 12 students will then come into the auditorium together for the last 10 minutes of the hour to dance together as a group. During your specified hour - our Dance Captain will be in the lobby with you to work with you and help you prepare for the dance portion. So please know that when you sign up for a time - you will need to stay through the entire hour to perform the dance portion at the end.
Please download the following monologue packet - it contains character descriptions and short monologues for the main characters.
PLEASE PREPARE 2 OF THESE MONOLOGUES TO PERFORM AT YOUR AUDITION - ANY 2 OF YOUR CHOICE.
32 Bars of a song - a verse and a chorus ONLY. Please prepare a portion of a song that shows your range and versatility as a singer. The song should be from a musical, but some pop songs may also be appropriate if they are in keeping with the style of Mamma Mia. Your song should highlight both your musical and acting abilities. Please DO NOT go over one minute. We will stop you if you run long - so please make sure to keep within the recommended time frame and be sure to showcase your musical strengths.
Our wonderful Dance Captain - Jill Uzelac - has choreographed our audition dance combination for this year! The links to the 2 videos are listed below. One is a step-by-step teaching video, and the other is the full combination alone. Take your time learning the dance. It's not easy - but we know everyone will be able to accomplish learning it. No matter what - have fun and SMILE! We're not looking for perfection - we're looking for expressive performers! PLEASE spend time on this dance prior to auditions. Jill will be there all day to help you prepare before your audition - but you will need to work on it ahead of time in order to be successful.
