New Year Well Wishes and Audition Info :)

It's 2010 (or at least it is where I went to college), and so I am taking a moment to extend best wishes to all of us Black Tornado Theater folks, both those still a part and those for whom we are but fond memory :).

I also am caving to the pressure of a pushy froshperson and putting up some info about South Pacific Auditions.

What you will NEED:
  • prepared music with taped or live accompanist. The song can be of your choosing BUT it should demonstrate your abilities in a theatrical context, not simply be a stand n belt. Please look for music that was written for the theatrical stage, rather than a pop hit.
  • prepared monologue of at least 1.5 minutes duration.
Initial audition will include performances of both prepared pieces, as well as possibly taking some additonal direction and reperforming either or both again.

There MAY be a call back for particular characters, if warranted

There will be a separate group audition to look at dance. A short piece (96 counts, give or take, I would expect) will be taught, then performed several times.

The dates are not set, yet, but expect them to be within a week of Feb 1, which (if you're paying close attention) also puts them either just before or immediately after Regionals.

couple minutes. If longer, we'll likely cut you off before you get thru the whole thing. Don't come in with some 8 minute thing from Sunday in the Park with George and expect to do it in toto.

I've never seen South Pacific, but as for the dance involved in the show I can't imagine there being much ballet involved, so what kind of dancers do you need for this show?
