Spartanburg Little Theatre auditioning for Singin’ In The RainPublished 10:59pm Tuesday, May 21, 2013
The Spartanburg Little Theatre announces auditions for its fall musical “Singin’ In the Rain” on Monday and Wednesday, May 27 and 29, at 7 p.m. in the David W. Reid Theatre at Chapman Cultural Center in Spartanburg.
People who want to audition should arrive at 6:30 p.m. to fill out paperwork. You can save time by downloading the audition form at www.SpartanburgLittleTheatre.com and filling it out ahead of time. You will audition in order of arrival.
SLT will cast 25 to 30 adult or teen (15 years old and older) actors/singers/dancers. Those auditioning for the principal roles of Don, Kathy, and Cosmo must have excellent vocal and dance skills.
There are numerous speaking roles for the ensemble, as well as the principal roles. Any teens auditioning must have dance training in tap and jazz. Please prepare 16 bars of a song from a musical that demonstrates your vocal range. An accompanist will be provided. Please bring a copy of your sheet music.
Songs from the show are welcome as audition pieces, as well as any other stylistically appropriate tunes. You may not sing a cappella. You will be taught a dance to be performed in small groups. Nearly every person in this show will dance, so you are encouraged to attend the dance audition.
The first half of the dance audition will be general dance auditions (no tap); the second half of the dance audition will consist of a tap combination. Please wear clothes you can dance in. Tap, character, jazz, or tennis shoes are suggested.
Call-backs will be Monday, June 3, at 7 p.m. at the David W. Reid Theatre.
Call-backs are by invitation only and will consist of reading from the script, additional singing and dancing.
