Audition Notes

Apart from those above there are no restrictions for auditions, all other characters, including principal parts, are open to everyone. There will be a short group movement audition and everyone will be required to sing solo as strong vocals are a requirement of the show. Those auditioning for principal roles may be asked to undertake a more extensive movement audition at the discretion of the audition panel.
 
Auditionees are to audition for 1 part only – multiple auditions are not required.
 
Due to restrictions with costumes, Fairytale characters and others where applicable will be doubling up as guards/rats/knights/puppeteers/blind mice etc. there will be no general chorus or a separate dance troupe.  This means there will be no general chorus and dancer auditions so everyone wanting to take part will need to audition for a part from the list below.
 
As places on onstage are not guaranteed, for this year only, we will not be asking for membership fees to be paid in advance of auditioning. Membership fees are to be paid within 4 weeks of the 1st rehearsal.
