Most roles have more speaking parts than singing, so make sure that you look over the scene from the script that has been provided! Make sure that you read over and practice the lines for each part. You might be asked to read as multiple characters.
Please bring the following with you to your audition:
Completed audition form with your conflicts noted
Sheet music (if you're auditioning for a lead, please also learn the ensemble song).
Your smiles and good attitude! Break a leg!
*If you are auditioning for an Ensemble part (The Fairies, The Pirates, The Lost Boys, The Indians, and/or The Mermaids) -- practice the song, "Yo Ho, A Pirate's Life for Me"
*If you are auditioning for a Male Lead part (Peter Pan, John, Michael, Mr. Darling, Captain Hook, Smee, Chief Tiger Bamboo) -- practice the song, "Never Smile at a Crocodile"
*If you are auditioning for a Female Lead part (Tinker Bell, Wendy, Mrs. Darling, Tiger Lily) -- practice the song "The Second Star to the Right" (both Part 1 and Part 2 are included; learn Part 2 for callbacks)
*If you are auditioning for NANA or THE CROCODILE, which are both non-speaking parts, practice the ensemble's song for your audition. You will also need to prepare the NANA script for your audition. Don't worry, the line is "Arf!" :) Those auditioning for NANA or THE CROCODILE should be prepared to read from the regular script at the Director's request.
This means that casting decisions won't be posted until after Tuesday 2/13. I'm sorry for this delay, but in order to ensure that everyone has a fair opportunity, we need to extend auditions.
Please reach out to me (Ms. Tarleton) with any and all questions or concerns.
Some helpful Auditioning advice
Practice! Look over your material well in advance and practice the song and scene. You will feel less nervous if you are prepared.
"There are no small parts, just small actors." - Konstantin Stanislavsky :: There are a lot of fun ensemble roles included in the Fairies, Pirates, Lost Boys, Indians, and Mermaids! You are all amazing, and every part counts :)
Drink lots of water!
Get plenty of rest!
Make eye contact with your audience. Familiarize yourself with the lines and songs so that you aren't performing just to your paper. You do NOT have to memorize your song and scene, but look up every once in a while.
Be yourself, not someone else. And do your best!
Some extra information:
There is a program fee of $35 per performer which includes the show t-shirt (fill out your size on your audition form!) and the script book that you get to keep! :)
For families with multiple students participating, the fee will be adjusted. Speak with Ms. Tarleton (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
Fees are due at the first rehearsal.
This show is open to TCCA and homeschooling students in grades 1-12! Don't hesitate to audition and be part of this amazing production!
At the first parent meeting, we will discuss volunteer opportunities for parents and families to participate in the show! They include, but aren't limited to:
Rehearsal support (i.e. assisting the director with music, dance, and acting rehearsals)
practice tracks for auditions
You can practice with these tracks, which are not karaoke tracks. In your audition, you will be asked to sing your song with this track, so make sure that you practice singing loud and clear! If during your audition you feel comfortable singing without the track, you will be given a shot at trying that. Practice, practice, practice! :)
