DATES & LOCATIONS
Auditions Sunday, August 30 at 2pm and Monday, August 31, at 7pm.
Auditions are NOT by appointment*. Please arrive on time.
Callbacks Wednesday, September 2 at 7pm.
Rehearsals begin Sept 8, 2015; performs Nov 13–Dec 12, 2015, Thursday thru Sunday. No perf on Thanksgiving Day.
No pay; non-union.
Please prepare up to a 32 bar/two minute song that shows off the sweet spot in your range. We’re looking for Jazz/Cabaret standards, or a selection from the Kander & Ebb songbook.
Accompanist provided: bring sheet music — no tapes/mp3s/cds, please.
Dance and vocalization at callbacks.
We’re seeking a cast of 3–5 women and 2–4 men with strong vocal chops, great charisma, and comic timing who can move and put over the story behind a song. Casting will be blind to race, gender identity, and body type.
GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT AUDITIONS
Auditions are open to everyone. Actors who have not worked at the Masquers are especially welcome. We very seldom precast, but if we do, we will always pre-announce any precast roles.
Unfortunately, we have no funds available to pay actors for their work. We are a non profit, community theatre, so we must rely on volunteers.
If you are cast, you are expected to commit to the entire run. Schedule conflicts during rehearsal, however, can almost always be worked out with the Director, as long as you let him or her know.
A headshot and resume are not necessary, but bring them if you have them. We will take a snapshot of you and have you fill out an audition form.
*Note about Masquers musical auditions: Masquers traditionally hosts open musical auditions—actors perform their audition pieces in front of all their fellow applicants. It can be a little jarring for the uninitiated, but it’s a surprisingly fun, supportive experience! Give it a try…
We look forward to seeing you at Masquers!
