What to do before auditions:
Prepare your vocal cut.
You can always look online at performances done by other companies to get a feel for what your character is like. We ask that you never fully base your character on someone else’s portrayal. Always make the character your own.
Look for excerpts of the script online to familiarize yourself with the script.
Make sure you know any conflicts you may have during the rehearsal period. Jot those down and put them on your audition sheet.
What to expect at auditions:
Each auditionee will learn a choreographed dance number that will be performed in small groups for the casting director and his crew.
Each auditionee will need to prepare one of the cuts below to do in a private vocal audition.
If you are asked to stay for cold reads, those selected will read excerpts from the script with other potential characters.
What to expect after auditions:
The cast list will be posted at www.facebook.com/paramountplayers with a date and time for our cast meeting.
