Auditions for ANTIGONE and MY FAIR LADY (joint audition)

Audition Date: Thu, Aug 30th, Callbacks Fri, Aug 31st
Audition Location: E.O. Bull Center for the Arts. Time slots will be posted on the callboard outside the costume shop on the ground level.

Prepare: Prepare a one-minute contemporary monologue, any style will do. Prepare an 8 bar selection of music that is in the Broadway style of the show, a contemporary ballad is also fine. You may use text or songs from the show if you wish, however it is not required. An accompanist will be provided but you may bring in pre-recorded accompaniment for your audition if you feel more comfortable. You do not have to use an accent for your audition. You may audition even if you have no previous musical experience. We want to create a great ensemble of many types of storytellers. While music is a dominant language of the piece it is not the only language. Text and music from each show will be used for callbacks.
Questions: Contact John Bellomo for Antigone at jbellomo@wcupa.edu. Contact Martin Dallago for My Fair Lady at mdallago@wcupa.edu.



Auditions for our future productions will be announced throughout the semester. Check back here or email TheatreDance@wcupa.edu. Dates and Shows are subject to change.
