Upcoming Auditions

Audition Information

AUDITION REQUIREMENTS

Please prepare one (1) minute of a standard musical theatre song, and bring an alternate selection as a backup (in some cases, the casting team may wish to hear more). Do not sing a song from the show. Do not sing a cappella. Bring sheet music in your key; an accompanist will be provided. A CD or music device with an accompaniment-only track is also acceptable, provided it is edited and cued correctly, and saved locally (please no YouTube recordings or anything that relies on a wireless signal).

Although not all roles require dance or tap, a short dance routine will be taught at the initial audition in order to assess ability; please bring dance and tap shoes if you have them. A separate dance call will be held at 7:00pm on Thursday November 1, 2018 for all dance roles. The dance call will be by invitation only following the initial audition; if you are invited to the dance call, please wear or bring comfortable dance attire and tap shoes if you have them.

When auditioning, please list any and all commitments during the rehearsal period – even on days not currently listed as rehearsal days. To the greatest extent possible, the schedule will be built around the cast’s availability. No additional conflicts will be accepted after casting, and no conflicts will be accepted for performance dates or the week before opening. The only way we would consider performance conflicts would be if we were to double-cast a role; this is not currently the intent, but it is not impossible. Please just be upfront with us, and we will afford you the same courtesy.

Post-audition feedback will not be given.

This is an “open”call. All roles open. Non-Equity, NO PAY.

NO PERFORMANCE CONFLICTS WILL BE ACCEPTED

PLEASE NOTE:

  • There will be no specified end time during tech week – it will depend on the run time of the show.
  • The actors portraying Jane and Michael will need to stay the full length of rehearsal whenever required. We will always make every effort to get them out early, but due to the size of the roles, we cannot guarantee it.

NOTE: The end time is highly approximate; generally, it may be earlier in the beginning and last longer as we get closer to opening. We are very respectful of everyone’s time.

BACKGROUND
Broadway’s greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a nonstop laughfest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted, courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a showgirl or two.
