About Auditions

When are auditions? Where do I go?

Doors open half an hour prior to the stated audition time. Please plan to be at auditions at least 15 minutes before they start.  Please note; everyone can only audition one night. There may, however, be a chance for callbacks. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, please do not attend if you are feeling ill and please continue to practice safe, practical social distancing guidelines and hygiene practices. 

 

AUDITIONS WILL CONSIST OF THREE PARTS:

 

Music Audition:

Please plan to sing 16-32 bars from a musical of your choice to show your vocal style and range. Bring clearly marked sheet music in a binder with easy to flip pages. An accompanist will be provided. If your sheet music isn't prepared correctly, you will have to sing your piece Acapella.

PDFs for almost any musical theater song can be found and purchased here for you to bring to your audition: https://www.musicnotes.com/piano/?gclid=CjwKCAjwzOqKBhAWEiwArQGwaO94BctbaTxj2Gn2EeD4BVBwt5hGTZYGBYhVMv47OrTyHKa8NpAJjxoC8hoQAvD_BwE

 

Dance Audition:  

The Choreographer will teach one simple dance combo. Wear comfortable clothes and closed-toed shoes (dance shoes are recommended, but not required).

 

Acting Audition: 

The director will provide “sides” to read and will assign roles based on who comes out to auditions. Note; just because you do not read for a role you may have put down on your audition form, does not mean that you will not be considered for that role. 

REMEMBER TO BRING

  • List of existing conflicts - YOU MUST BE AVAILABLE ON ALL PERFORMANCE DATES AND DURING TECH WEEK. (Note: Due to a small cast size, it will be important to have minimal conflicts during the time frame of rehearsals). Even though a draft of the rehearsal schedule will be shown to you, please put down all conflicts (including around the holidays), as the rehearsal schedule will change depending on the need and who is casted. Please put down conflicts from Monday - Sunday. Rehearsals will primarily be Monday through Friday, with minimal rehearsals on Saturdays and Sundays. The goal is to rehearse at least 4 to 5 times a week.

  • Completed audition form and a Headshot - (Extra forms will be available to fill out at auditions and we will have a camera to take a headshot if you don’t have one).

  • Dress comfortably and be ready to make a strong first impression - Avoid costumes. Bring dance or closed-toe shoes please, (no flip-flops, sandals, or jewelry that impedes movement).

  • Familiarize yourself with the show and characters prior to the audition - The internet is loaded with resources for finding plots, listening to soundtracks, and seeing videos of past productions.

  • Arrive early - So you have time for check-in and warm-up.

OTHER INFORMATION

  • Tech week rehearsals may run past 9:30 PM.. Rehearsals may look a little different from time to time due to the holiday season coming around and due to A Christmas Carol rehearsals. We appreciate your patience and willingness to work with us as we continue to make theatre happen.

SYNOPSIS

What is Clue: The Musical? What is this show all about?

Book by Peter DePietro. Music by Galen Blum, Wayne Barker, and Vinnie Martucci. Lyrics by Tom Chiodo. Based on the Parker Brothers’ Board Game

 

The internationally popular game is now a fun-filled musical that brings the world’s best-known suspects to life and invites the audience to help solve the mystery: who killed Mr. Boddy, in what room, and with what weapon? The audience receives forms to help them deduce the solution from clues given throughout the fun-filled evening. Three audience members choose from cards representing the potential murderers, weapons, and rooms; there are 216 possible solutions! Only one hard-nosed female detective is qualified to unravel the merry mayhem. Comic antics, witty lyrics, and a beguiling score carry the investigation from room to room. Even after the culprit confesses, a surprise twist delights the audience. This colorful crowd-pleaser was devised by the authors of Murder at Rutherford House and other popular interactive entertainments.
