Everyone is welcome to audition; no prior experience is necessary! We know that this can be a nerve-wracking process and want you to know that we wish you success and enjoyment in this experience. Here is some audition info so you know what to expect:
Please prepare a traditional Broadway-style song to sing, you may bring sheet music for our accompanist. First audition and have no song? No problem! You can always sing Happy Birthday.
You may also be asked to read sides from the script. They can be found on our website mctbackstage.com and can also be obtained by contacting the director (contact info at the end of this announcement). There will be copies provided at the audition.
There is no dance portion to the audition. Those auditioning for the children’s roles may be asked to do a small movement combination.
Rehearsals begin March 17 and will be held Sunday through Thursday, 6:30-9:00pm. Not everyone will be called to all rehearsals. Please bring a list of your conflicts to the audition so we may schedule effectively.
You may choose to print the audition form off our website, mctbackstage.com, and bring it with you to the audition. Copies will also be provided at the audition. We may take your photo to assist us in casting/costuming.
