Rehearsals are held Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons, commencing Sunday 3rd May. Every effort to schedule out of town cast members to a Sunday will be made. Show season runs 22nd August to 13th September. There will be a rehearsal break from 2nd to 17th July (School holidays).
People auditioning will be asked to choose one of the following songs to sing from Wicked: Dancing through life, Defying Gravity or Popular. Alternatively, you are welcome to sing any song of your choice from a musical theatre production (bring a backing track on your phone). Please note you should be prepared to ‘perform’ the audition song as if you are singing in an actual production. We would prefer you learn a short section of the song well, rather than read lyrics off the page.
There will be a short, simple choreographed piece of stage movement so please wear comfortable footwear.
Anyone of high school age and older is welcome to audition. We will particularly be needing men 16-50 years so if you are a man in this age group who enjoys being (or always wanted to be) on the stage, this production is for you!
Auditions are coming up for junior Production of Into the Woods.
An audition workshop will be held on Wednesday 16th October from 6.30-8.30pm to introduce prospective auditioners to the production of Into the Woods Jr., and to practice some of the songs.
The Auditions will be held from on Sunday 20th October from 1.00-5.00pm and Wednesday 23rd October from 6.30-8.30pm.
Into the Woods JR. is a young performer's edition of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's cock-eyed view of everyone's favourite Brothers Grimm fairytale characters. This engaging and funny musical comedy twists the familiar fairy tales into a brand new story. When a Baker and his Wife learn they've been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell; swindling, deceiving and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack (the one who climbed the beanstalk)!
