Description: This is a high energy song and dance show featuring golden oldies music with a heavy emphasis on Motown. Show is 1.5 hours with an intermission. Performers must be at the fitness level to be able to dance and sing concurrently. Soloists will be assigned featured songs in May and will be expected to start rehearsals with all parts memorized. Production will include live band.
Audition: Auditions are March 30 and 31 at 6pm. Only one audition day is required. To be considered for casting, you are required to complete BOTH the group dance and individual vocal audition. Auditionees should come prepared with headshot and resume.
For vocal audition, please come prepared with 60 seconds of a pop song from the 1950s-60s that highlights your voice. No live accompaniment provided, songs should be on CD (preferred) or cued on a device with headphone jack. For those who wish to be a featured soloist, please prepare a second contrasting song.
For group dance audition, auditionees should wear clothing that is easy to move in, character/dance shoes recommended. A combination will be taught for all auditionees and those that wish to show tricks/jumps/turns will be given a chance to do so. This production will be choreographed by three different choreographers, so ability to learn different styles quickly is as important as technical ability is.
Taped auditions will be considered for those who wish to audition, but will not be in town during these dates. Please contact Catherine Moulton for details. This being said, live auditions give the directors the best idea of your talents so please only use taped auditions as a last resort.
Call backs will be scheduled as needed.
If you are interested in auditioning, please email Catherine Moulton at firstname.lastname@example.org with the date you wish to attend.
Dates: Detailed rehearsal schedule and calls to be provided at a later date. Please prepare to be at all rehearsals, all performers not scheduled to rehearse on a certain date will still be considered “on call.”
