Information Packs

Conducted by an audition panel. Includes an accompanist for allocated character songs.

We want to hear your voice, see your character and witness your talent.

American accents can be used; however, do not attempt to just “copy” the character - provide  your interpretation of the material. 

 

10-minute solo auditions include:

●            Vocal range check

●            Vocal audition (based on song list provided for roles - See Character List document)

●            Basic dance steps to assess poise, balance, and ability

●            Cold reading of dialogue (may/may not be from The Wedding Singer script)


Those undertaking solo auditions are not required to attend the ensemble audition.

 

If auditioning for multiple roles, please indicate on your booking form the roles for which you are auditioning (including consideration for ensemble). 

 

Ensemble-only auditions will be held in groups of five (5) people. These time slots will be indicated in the booking system as an hour time slot with people grouped together on the day. Please allow time either side of your time slot to be grouped and audition. 

 

Break dancer only auditions require the auditionee to bring their own music and perform a short, energetic break-dancing routine.
