TO AUDITION FOR SWEENEY TODD!
Our Music Director, Carl Rowles, has clarified the auditions process:
If you would like to sing in the chorus (which will be a large group of singers, of all types and ages), the ONLY thing you need to prepare for your audition is “16 bars of a song that demonstrates your ability to communicate a character.”
If you’re interested in playing one of the nine named roles, you should also choose a cutting from the list, and prepare that.
You only have to prepare a cutting if you’re auditioning for a named role (Todd, Mrs. Lovett, Tobias, Anthony, Johanna, Judge Turpin, Beadle, Pirelli or Beggar Woman).
Auditions are this weekend (Dec 12-14) at the Community of Christ Church. All the details, including character breakdown, the director’s approach, a link to the audition form, and links to the audition cuttings are here.
We hope to see you at auditions, and onstage!!
