Auditions for "Violet" Musical.
Here are some important audition tips that can help the process be smooth and efficient, as well as fun:
You will sing only about 32 measures (20-60 seconds) of your prepared song. Mark your sheet music ahead of time so that you can show it to the accompanist quickly. We may cut you off early. If we do, we promise it's not because we don't like you. We're just moving things along quickly so that we can get to everyone.
You may be asked to sing scales so we can assess your range.
You will audition individually with your song, scales, and script-reading.
Depending on the show and the role you are trying out for, you may have a dance audition (usually in groups). Make sure you bring/wear comfortable shoes for your dance audition.
Attendance at rehearsals will be very important. Come to auditions with a list of any conflicts. Most shows rehearse on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. We will try to schedule rehearsals around your conflicts if possible. Put all this information on your audition form.
If necessary, there may be callbacks the day after auditions. If you don't get a callback, it doesn't mean you're not getting the part you wanted. It just means we don't need to see you again in order to cast the show.
Most of all, enjoy yourself and let your personality shine through. This is about fun and community!
Seeking males 18+.
Flick: An African-American soldier; a dreamer and go-getter. He doesn't enjoy the army, but enjoys the respect it garners him. There is something gentle, good about him, not to be interpreted or confused with weakness or lack of authority. (Range: C4-E6)
Monty: A paratrooper and Flick's friend from basic training. Rough around the edges. Self-consumed, but not necessarily purposefully so. Fighting his own demons. (Range: A3-G5)
Violet's Father: A simple, widowed man who lovingly raises his daughter alone doing the best he can with the little knowledge and resources he has to do so. Stern but friendly, smart but uneducated. Accidentally scars Violet's face while he is chopping wood. (Range: A3-F5)
Preacher: An impassioned, theatrical man who preaches with all the bravado he can muster. Once had a true healing touch but has lost it in his quest to become a showman. Dismissive and egotistical. (Range: B3-G5)
Virgil: The Preacher's assistant. Knows the smoke & mirrors of the Preacher's show and must begrudgingly deal with anyone who might derail it. (Range: B3-B5)
Lulu Buffington: A member of the volunteer African-American choir that sings for the Preacher's telecast. Sings for God with passion and power. (Range: F3-G5)
