Audition Details (PLEASE READ)
The production staff has asked everyone to prepare a bit differently from how Pied Piper Theatre has auditioned in the past. As an actor, working for a variety of directors and styles, is a benefit. Just as every director has their own vision for a show, so do they for auditions.
How many times have you walked out of an audition thinking “I didn’t get to read for the role I wanted” or “sing for the character of your choice”. This is your opportunity to do just that. SHOW us what you can do for the role you would like to play.
For this audition we are asking performers to prepare 16-32 bars of a song from the show. Yes, from the show. A cappella is acceptable, but we would prefer that you sing with an instrumental track. You may use your phone to play your tracks. If you are worried about volume, you may bring your own portable speaker.
For the monologue portion, please study one of the sides provided. What are sides? Sides are selections from the script chosen to specifically highlight certain characters. If you aren’t sure which character to choose, pick from any of the sides to prepare. If you are more comfortable performing a monologue, you may do that instead of sides.
Due to the style of the show, dance will not be a part of the audition.
