Sides will be provided so you can demonstrate your acting skills. Be prepared, bring your stage biography and a headshot. Turn off your cell phone. If the role you are auditioning for has an accent required – be prepared. Warm up before the audition.

Audition Attire: Wear appropriate clothing that makes you feel confident. Avoid constrictive or excessively stylish clothing. Consider wearing something that makes you feel confident but won’t be distracting. Also try somewhat to emulate the role you’re going in for.

If you are Auditioning for a Musical or a Melodrama – you will be asked to sing a song. Normally prepare two contrasting vocal selections (16 bars). Sheet music should be placed in a binder or folder with the fewest page turns. An accompanist will be provided. No a Capella singing.

If your role requires dancing: You may be required to learn and repeat a dance combination. Bring appropriate clothing and footwear.

Consider all auditions to be learning experiences designed to help you grow as a performer. See auditions as a chance to bring yourself to a new character and do what you love in front of an attentive audience. If you deliver your best performance and you don’t get the role – don’t take it personally. There is always next time.

PERFORMANCES

Step into the enchanted world of Broadway’s classic, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, an international sensation that has been produced in 37 countries worldwide.. The original Broadway production ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical. This “tale as old as time” tells the story of Belle, a young woman from a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end – and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household servants will be doomed for all eternity.
