Are there any limitations to the number in the cast?
Dependant on the numbers that apply to perform it may be necessary to limit numbers in the chorus. The cast will be advised of any decisions taken once we know how many we need to accommodate.
Phoenix stand committed to give everyone the opportunity to participate in live theatre and we will do everything in our power to continue with this aim.
If you’re still interested read on………….
So what happens on Audition day?
The day starts off with a workshop running from 10.30 am until 1.00 pm.
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 'I'm still standing'. We will actually use this song in the finished production. 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 track on YouTube or iTunes. Learn this and you’re ahead of the game already!
We will also go through the character parts in the show, outlining what you must do for each part. We will also explain how rehearsals etc will run from May. You will also get the chance to look at the audition parts we’ve prepared. 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. Practice this by finding the song on YouTube or iTunes. This will put you ahead of the game on the day!
Parts will be listed here in due course.
IF YOU ONLY WANT TO TAKE PART IN CHORUS YOU ONLY NEED TO ATTEND FROM 10.30 am UNTIL 1.00 pm
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 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! With some parts there is also a song for you to sing.
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, as we need to see all perform. You will be able to socialise with the others being auditioned in the foyer area of the Theatre whilst you wait for your chance to impress. At approximately 5.30 pm we will call everyone into the theatre and announce the cast and hand out scripts.
What happens next?
Rehearsals for all will commence Sunda 3rd May 2020 at Offenham. If you are unfortunate not to get a main part you will still have the opportunity to take part in the chorus.
If you have any questions on the above please call Keith Norledge, the Producer, on 0777 333 7108 who will be happy to answer any questions.
