So what happens on Audition day?
The day starts off with a workshop running from 11am until 12.30pm.
In this time our Musical Director and Choreographer will go through one of the songs from the show. You'll go through the lyrics and part of the dance routine for some of the songs. This will give you the opportunity to sing and dance and allow us to look at what you can bring to the show. To help you prepare for this, the words to the song will be listed below in January 2020. Look up the musical soundtrack on YouTube or iTunes. Learn this and you’re ahead of the game already!
These parts are listed below to help you get ready for the audition. If the part you want to go for requires singing, the specific song will be listed.
Elle Woods- Main female part and show lead, lots of solo singing, choreography and lines.
Emmett- Main male part and show lead, lots of solo singing and lines.

How do auditions work?
Over the lunch break you’ll be asked to choose ONE part to audition for. You will be considered for other parts, but time limitations only allow us to see you perform once on the day-so please make the most of it.
You’ll then be given the audition part you’re going for. Don’t worry if you can’t learn it in the short time you’ll have, but again we will put the parts below to help you out! All auditions will require singing.
On the audition pieces each song you need to sing will be listed. One by one you will be called in to audition in front of an audition panel of 4/5 people. You’ll then perform the audition piece.
The afternoon is long for everyone. You will be able to socialise with other auditionees in the foyer area of the Theatre whilst you wait for your chance to impress. At approximately 5.30pm we will call everyone into the theatre and announce the cast and hand out scripts.
What happens next?
Rehearsals for all will commence Sunday 3rd May 2020 at Offenham village hall.
If you are unfortunate not to get a main part you will still have the opportunity to take part in the chorus.
