Once On This Island
“A Caribbean Musical Masquerade”
Sunday August 28th and Tuesday August 30th at 6:30 pm
Open Auditions Casting 12-28 People
- Adults and older Teens (14+)
- 1-2 girls who appear to be 6-10 years old
- 1 boy who appears to be 6-10 years old
This is an ensemble show of STORYTELLERS – while there are some featured roles, everyone will be onstage most of the show and be in most of the songs and dances. There will be a lot of creative movement and dance opportunities due to it being a sung-through musical and to the storytelling theater style we are using to create the show.
Auditioners should prepare a complete musical theater song (but not one from the show) that demonstrates both singing ability and ability to convey character through song. Bring sheet music; accompanist will be provided. There will also be a dance audition so be prepared to learn a combination and dress appropriately for movement. These are open auditions — racial, ethnic, and non-traditional casting considered.
Everyone please arrive at 6:30 either night. (Note: The choreographer will be on hand starting at 6 pm for those who wish to start learning the dance combo early!) Below is a video of the audition dance. If you want to come but can’t make the 6:30 call, please contact Mindy at 369-7632 or Judi at 455-5156.
