Upcoming Auditions

Audition Information

AUDITION REQUIREMENTS
Please prepare one (1) minute of a standard or contemporary 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. Bring sheet music in your key; an accompanist will be provided. A CD with an accompaniment-only track is also acceptable, provided it is edited and cued correctly. There will also be cold reading from the script. Come dressed to dance and be prepared to learn show choreography. Bring a performing résumé if you have one (not required). This is an “open call” audition. Non-Equity, NO PAY.

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.

All roles open. Non-Equity, NO PAY.

NO PERFORMANCE CONFLICTS ACCEPTED

BACKGROUND
Based on the 1988 film of the same name, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels centers around two competing con men, living on the French Riviera. At first, the suave and experienced Lawrence Jameson takes the rookie con man, Freddy, under his wing. But soon Freddy is successful enough that he tries to compete directly with Lawrence. The competition comes to a peak when they agree that the first con man to extract $50,000 from the female heiress, Christine Colgate, wins and the other must leave town forever. Rated PG-13
