Audition Information

Please read all the information on this page and look through the list of Characters. Then Sign Up for an audition slot or to help in other areas.

Roles in this production are all speaking parts.  There is one main singing role (Julia) and singing roles for the children’s church choir. The children’s church choir will be cast separately (more info later). To audition, please follow these steps:

1. Familiarize yourself with the show by clicking on the Script link. You will be able to read and download the complete script.

2. Click on the Characters link for a complete list of characters and the suggested age range. Though not required, identifying specific character(s) you’d like to audition for prior to auditions will help you be prepared, as some of the audition dialogue will be noted next to each character by page number. Several actors may have more than one role, such as holiday shoppers or church congregants.

3. Click on the Rehearsal Schedule link to view the rehearsal and performance schedule. Rehearsals begin in the summer and continue until production time in December. Rehearsals will be on Sunday afternoons and Monday evenings. Not all actors will be called each day. An Availability Questionnaire will be sent to you after signing up for auditions.  This must be completed prior to auditions. It is possible we can work around many scheduling conflicts. A detailed schedule indicating exactly which rehearsals each cast member will be expected to attend will be created after reviewing cast members’ availability and will be handed out at our first rehearsal.

4. Auditions will be held on Sunday, July 19.  

Auditions will be held from 2-5pm. We may not need the entire 3 hours.

Callbacks/make ups will be held on Monday, July 20 at 6:30 p.m. (You will be notified if you are needed to come for a Callback.)

5.  Click on the Audition Form link. Print and fill out the form completely & bring it with you to your audition.

6.  Click on the Commitment Pledge link.  After reading this pledge carefully and thoroughly, print, sign and bring it with you to your audition.  Producing a show with a volunteer cast and production crew is a huge undertaking.  It takes great dedication, time, energy and sacrifice to successfully and cohesively bring a show of this magnitude together.  Your commitment is key to the team’s success and receiving your pledge is an acknowledgement of that commitment.  Thank you for your commitment!

 

Day of Audition - Sunday, July 19 (2-5pm)

Bring the following completed forms:  Audition Form and Commitment Pledge(*The Availability Questionnaire needs to be completed prior to August 9.)

For this show, auditions will be held in an open format. Those auditioning will be called at the same time, and all auditioners will be asked to read from the script in front of the group as a whole. (This is a good opportunity to learn from your peers.)

You will read selections from the script, either noted in the character list or “cold” (from the script but not noted). 

CALLBACKS/Make ups - Monday, July 20 (6:30-8pm)

Callbacks will be held for a select group of actors.  During your callback, you may be asked to read from the script, or be asked to perform movement and improv exercises.  Being called back does not mean that you will be cast, it just means we need additional opportunity to evaluate your skills.  In the same light, not being called back does not mean you will not be cast, but simply that we feel we saw all we needed to see at your first audition.  If you are called back, you will receive an e-mail/phone call from the production staff detailing what you should prepare.

By the end of the week of July 19, everyone who auditions will receive a complete cast list by email.

Thanks for your interest and I look forward to seeing you at auditions!

Bob Weirup, Producer/Director
