Audition Information

Roles in the production include singing, dancing and speaking parts.  In order to audition, please follow these steps:

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

        2. Familiarize yourself with the music in the show by clicking on the "Demonstration Recordings" tab.

        3. Decide which character you would like to audition for.  Click on the "Characters" tab for a complete list of characters and the requirements for their audition.

        4. Prepare the required song listed on the "Characters" tab.  In addition to the "Demonstration Recordings", you can click on the "Accompaniment Tracks" tab to practice the required songs with the tracks that will be used at auditions.  To see the sheet music for the songs, click on the "Sheet Music" tab.

        5. Set up an audition time with Tracy Thomas.  You can call him at the church office (559-8070) or email him (tthomas@fairmountchristian.org). Auditions will be held on Friday, May 19, from 6:00-9:00 p.m. OR on Saturday, May 20, from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 noon.  You will NOT need to be there the entire time.  Each audition time slot is approximately 45 minutes.  Callbacks (if needed) will be held from 1:00-2:00 on that Saturday, May 20.

        6. Click on the "Audition form" tab.  Print and fill out the form completely, then bring it with you to your audition.

        7. Click on the "Rehearsal Schedule" tab to view the complete rehearsal schedule.  PLEASE NOTE:  Rehearsals begin in the summer and continue throughout the fall.  There are rehearsals on Sundays and Wednesdays.  Until the month of October, not everyone will be asked to attend every rehearsal, but only rehearsals for the scenes/songs in which you will appear.  Therefore, it is possible we can work around many scheduling conflicts as long as they are listed on your contract.  If you do not list any conflicting dates on your contract, we will assume you are completely available for the entire rehearsal process.  A detailed schedule indicating exactly which rehearsals you will be expected to attend will be handed out at the Read-Through on June 4.

        8. Click on the "Commitment contract" tab.  After reading this contract carefully and thoroughly, print and fill it out and then bring it to your audition.  Indicate any potential conflicts with the rehearsal schedule.  PLEASE NOTE:  Producing a show with a volunteer cast that has limited rehearsal time is a huge undertaking and all actors must agree to the terms of the contract in order to participate.     

        Once you arrive for your audition, you will sing your prepared musical number, and will learn and perform choreography.  Please be dressed for movement, and wear closed-toe shoes.  Auditions are “closed,” which means that no one except the audition panel and those auditioning are allowed in the audition room. 

        Callbacks (if needed) will be held on Saturday, May 20, from 1:00-2:00 p.m.  During your callback, you may be asked to sing one of the musical numbers from the show, read from the script, or be asked to perform additional choreography.  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 or phone call from the production staff detailing what you will need to prepare.

        By the end of the week of May 21, everyone who auditions will receive a complete cast list by email.

        We look forward to seeing you at auditions!

                        Tracy Thomas, Music Director

                        Kenny Holley, Choreographer
