A sign-up sheet is located on the bulletin board in the Leeds Breezeway of Lyman Hall. Please sign-up for one hour-long slot. If possible, sign-up for one of the evening times, as the afternoon slots on Thursday will be needed to accommodate those involved in other productions going up in December. If there is no availability during the time you have free, contact James (contact information below).

The Audition
Groups of twelve actors will audition together in hour-long slots. In pairs, they will read selected sides from the show (available, along with script, score, and recording, in the Becker Library in advance and at the auditions on the day-of). Individually, they will sing 16-32 bars of a song not from the show (but from a musical or the American Songbook) and should bring sheet music to the audition (accompanist provided, sheet music selections available in Orwig). Finally, the entire group will be taught a short selection of a dance from the show. Actors should wear clothes in which they can move.

Important Dates
Rehearsals will begin on January 15, one week before the start of classes. Actors are required to be on campus for this week, and housing will be arranged through ResLife. Actors will also be needed for tech and performances beginning on the Monday of Winter Weekend (February 16) straight through the show’s closing (March 8).
