Auditions

Auditions for FUN HOME will be held on Saturday, April 6, starting at 1pm BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Schedule your audition here: http://www.getconnectederie.org/need/detail/?need_id=412366

We will also attempt to schedule auditions on other days if you are absolutely unable to audition on April 6. Email info@dramashop.org to request an alternate slot.

FUN HOME will be directed by Dramashop artistic director Zach Flock, with musical direction by Kate Thiem.

WHAT TO PREPARE:
All who audition should prepare 16-32 bars from a contemporary musical. Please bring sheet music for the accompanist or an accompaniment CD. We cannot play accompaniment from your phone.

Prepared monologues are not necessary, as all who audition will be asked to perform cold readings provided at auditions.

Please also be prepared to fill out a conflict sheet with your availability for rehearsals from April 20 through the end of the run.
