HOW WILL AUDITIONS WORK?
Sign up for one of the audition slots
You will be assigned a 30 minute small group audition time (If the slot you have selected is full, you will be offered an alternate)
You will be emailed a confirmation of your audition time along with a link to fill out your audition form online. (Cinfirmations are sent by staff manually, not automatically, so it may take a day or more to receive your confirmation)
You will be sent aa link and passcode to the auditon zoom meeting. When you login to the meeting you will hang out in the meeting's virtual waiting room until you are called in for your audition.
You will be greeted by the audition team and asked to perform your song.
You will be given permission to share your screen in order to share your recorded accompaniment. Be sure to check the box allowing your to share sound on your computer.
Your accompaniment should be instrumental only, so the productionteam can hear you singing alone.
You may be given some direction and asked to perform again or asked to sing through your range from low to high.
Once every auditioner in your group has sung, you may be asked to improvise or read from the script.
HAVE FUN! This is a whole new experience for everyone.
HOW WILL CALLBACKS WORK?
Callbacks will take place Monday February 1.
The production team will determine their schedule for the evening based on what they want to see, but please try to be available 5pm-10pm.
The director will share a choreography video for those who are called back to study and learn before their callback. The choreography video will be posted before auditions. We recommend studying the choreography in the days leading up to auditions, just in case you are called back.
Actors called back may be asked to study and learn a short piece of music from the show to perform at callbacks. They may also be asked to study and present a scene of dialogue.
The Callback List will be posted late in the evening on Sunday, Jan 31, and auditioners will receive an email notification once callbacks are posted.
Actors called back will receive a zoom link and passcode.
HOW WILL REHEARSALS WORK?
Rehearsals will take place primarily outside on the patio at the Hillcrest Center for the Arts with actors separated on our "safety stage" into cubicles with walls on three sides. When all actors are safely within their cubicles and our director and musical director masked and behind a plexiglass barrier, actors will be permitted to sing together unmasked. Some choreography rehearsals will take place with performers masked and distanced on the ground rather than in the safety boxes. Actors will rehearse primarily in "pods" grouped with others in the same scenes. They will likely see very little of the actors outside of their pods. Actors will need to ave strong independent understanding of their choreography and dilogue, as they will not be able to see the other performers while in the safety boxes.
HOW WILL PERFORMANCES WORK?
Performances will be much like rehearsals, with cameras capturing the action. Performers will remain in the safety boxes, acting opposite collaborators they cannot see. Filming will take place over several evenings, in our rehearsal "pods" and then editted together for a final recorded stream.
