1. Music Audition- Our Music Director, David Corkill, will check the vocal range of each participant (high/low) and will teach a short selection from the show.

2. Dance Audition- Our Choreographer, Amy Selman, will teach a short dance combination. Talent should be prepared to learn in a large group and then perform the combination in a smaller group. We expect to see dancers of all skill levels. Give it your best and sell it!

CALLBACK DETAILS:

3. Dance Audition- TBD

SYNOPSIS:
The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room. Based on the hit Adam Sandler movie, The Wedding Singer's sparkling new score does for the '80s what Hairspray did for the '60s. Just say yes to the most romantic musical in twenty years.
It's 1985, and rock star wannabe, Robbie Hart, is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer. He's the life of the party until his own fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and, unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.
