June is around the corner and open auditions will go on – virtually!
Since we’re still mostly stay-at-home and we want to make sure everyone is safe we are shifting open auditions to video submissions.
We are still hopeful that the show can go on in November with rehearsals in September & October. But if not, you will be a part of 2021 THT!
Here is how to audition …
Materials must be received by Robin (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than 6/14. Anything with a timestamp of 6/15 or later will not be eligible.
First make sure you add yourself to the open auditions list. We use this as a checklist to review the materials. Then video yourself acting, singing, and dancing as outlined below. Make sure that you are visible in the screen at all times and not too close or far away. Check that your microphone is picking up your voice and make sure that your music track does not drown you out! Email the videos to Robin (email@example.com). If emailing is a problem you can upload your videos to YouTube (unlisted) and email Robin the link. Also, fill out and send us a Code of Conduct signed by student and parent. And make sure our rehearsal and performance schedule works for you. Review our 2020 Rehearsal and Performance Schedule.
Introduce yourself, tell us your name, age, school, and introduce the monologue you are presenting, along with some facts about your acting experience. Then perform a monologue of 1 minute or so, memorized.
Choose a song that best shows off your voice. Video yourself first introducing the song and then performing 32 measures of it. Please perform accompanied (many accompaniment tracks can be found on YouTube). We recommend that you play the accompaniment recording through a device separate from the one recording your performance in order to obtain the best quality video.
We will send out the dance video the first week of June along with a music track to dance to. Learn the dance and then record yourself performing it.
