Seeking Non-Union Singers for Show
Location: Westlake Village, CA
Gender: Male and Female
Ethnicity: All ethnicities
Auditions for "Guys and Dolls".
Set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, GUYS AND DOLLS is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler, Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. GUYS AND DOLLS takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong. Rated PG.
Prepare a one minute cut of a standard musical theatre song that demonstrates your vocal range and ability. Bring sheet music in your key. An accompanist will be provided. Alternatively, you may use a recorded accompaniment.
Bring your calendar and be prepared to identify your conflicts for the rehearsal period. Directors can accommodate some conflicts but need to understand when they are.
A dance combination will be taught, though not all roles are required to dance. Some will be asked to read from the script. Callbacks will likely include the songs listed in the character breakdown below, though callbacks will only be held if necessary and may not include all roles.
No appointment necessary; open call audition. Non-union. No pay.
Appropriate material for this audition might include the songs of Frank Loesser, Lerner & Loewe, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Kander & Ebb, Jerry Herman, etc. Pop songs or contemporary musical theatre (e.g., "Rent," "Hamilton," "Hairspray") are discouraged, as they are not in the style of this show. For initial auditions, singing from the show is acceptable but no preference will be given to those who do. If you will be using our accompanist, bring sheet music in your key that includes the complete piano accompaniment (not a lead sheet). If you are using a recorded accompaniment, bring a CD or a device (e.g., phone or MP3 player) with the necessary cable to plug into an amplifier. Recorded accompaniments must not include vocals. Everyone should sing with some form of accompaniment; a capella auditions are not permitted. If you are auditioning for a non-singing part, just bring something simple that demonstrates you can sing well enough to sing in a group if needed.
Callback songs have been listed in this notice as a help to you. Not everyone will be called back, and not every role will be called back. Nevertheless, if you are invited to come back, being prepared with this material will help you give your best callback audition.
