Important notes

•Various cameo solos throughout the show will be allocated to chorus members during rehearsals.
•While you obviously have to be able to sing well, the biggest focus is not going to be on technical execution. This is a rock and roll show, so we will be focusing less on hitting every specific note or rhythm and more on whether you take risks and deliver with passion, energy, and creativity. We want to see dynamic interpretations both in your singing and your physical acting of the scene. That means not just standing still while focusing on the sheet music!
•There are many recorded versions of the show and I will post some YouTube links to get you started; ignore the videos’ visual interpretations and just focus on their singing as our staging will be stylistically unlike any of them. It is recommended that you listen to and practice with a diverse array of other recordings so you do not pigeon-hole your singing to sound like any specific version. There is no one "definitive" version so make it your own.
•If you have any questions about the music, just ask us!

Audition dates: Sunday 8th December from 1.30 pm - Thursday 12th December from 7.30pm
