Auditions - UPDATED
Auditions will include a prepared (meaning MEMORIZED) piece of at least one minute and not exceeding two minutes length. People auditioning for Ariel, Caliban, Stephano, and Trinculo will need to demonstrate movement and singing, as well.
I suggest your audition piece be Shakespeare or a contemporary of Shakespeare (Marlowe, say) to demonstrate you can do the language. Accents are NOT required (and may do you more harm than good). If you bring a modern piece, I may ask you to read something from Shakespeare cold.
The audition itself will include me and two pre-production staff, likely NOT associated with NMHS (auditioning in front of strangers is a GOOD thing).
Arsenic and Old Lace auditions will be BEFORE winter break, Wednesday of the final school week of 2005. Sign-up sheets are up in FA6, and check with Adam Broud for more details.
Arsenic auditions are from scenes from the show. Copies are available in the FA 6 Lobby.
Both shows will rehearse at close to the same time, so being in both is HIGHLY unlikely, if not impossible.
