Auditions for "Hair" The Tribal Love Rock Musical.
Performances run October 13 through 29 in Valparaiso, Indiana.
Casting is open to performers 18 and up. A youthful appearance is essential except where noted. Please prepare a monologue not to exceed 150 words (you may use one of those provided below or bring one of your own) and a vocal selection not to exceed 32 bars. Bring your sheet music, an accompanist will be provided. There will also be a dance evaluation.
This will be a difficult show to mount and rehearse. The Tribe has dance and vocal responsibilities on so many numbers that rehearsal attendance will be of primary importance. Auditions are being held 11 weeks prior to opening to allow for flexibility and time to assimilate the large amount of material. They can work with scheduling conflicts if they know about them in advance, but multiple additions to your conflict schedule after casting will present a serious problem. Please come to auditions with a complete list of your weekday evening and weekend conflicts for the dates July 31st through Oct 12th (opening night is October 13th). Again, they will work to accommodate conflicts to get the best talent on the stage, but conflicts after the fact are detrimental to the quality of the show, and particularly to the efforts of your cast mates.
About nudity: While it is not mentioned in the script, most theater buffs know that Hair usually features a nude scene at the end of Act One, after Claude sings "Where Do I Go." Most of the principals involved in mounting the original production concede that it was mostly a publicity stunt, but it has nonetheless become a standard part of the show. Although they are not sure yet exactly how they are going to stage the end of Act One, director wants to assure all prospective auditioners that nudity on your part will never be required. You will not be asked at auditions if you if you are willing to do a nude scene. If the production team decides some form of discreetly lit and very brief nudity would add to the show, and if the group of performers as a whole decides they are in favor of that, it will still be individually strictly voluntary. A comfortable, safe, and supportive environment is essential for this show, and they will do everything necessary to provide one.
