Closed: Old Father Time and the Magic Pendulum Auditions

Audition Requirements

Vocal:

You will be required to prepare one song.  Please consider the style of the show and the character(s) you are auditioning for when choosing a song.   And learn it!
There will be no a’capella or CDs/backing-tracks.  You must bring sheet music and our multi-talented piano player will play it for you.  The sheet music must be in the desired key (we will not transpose), and please write in any slight edits you may need.
If the song is a twelve page epic, please choose the bit that highlights your range and talents.  You won’t get through it all!
If we stop you half way through, please do not take it personally.  We are EXCELLENT at our jobs (no really) and we only need a few moments to see what you can do.

Acting:

At the audition you will be given some script to read.  Of course, acting is not just something you do with words, your acting during the singing will also be considered.

Dancing:

You may be required to do a small dance audition with our Choreographer during your audition, so please wear suitable clothing and footwear.

Lastly:

Don’t be nervous – we will try and make the process as enjoyable as possible.

Relax. Enjoy.  Don’t worry if you mess up – we want to see what you CAN do, and we will conveniently ignore any mistakes you make.
PS Learn your song off by heart!  Extra points are always awarded for people who are prepared!!
