What to bring to your audition:

- Sheet music of your song for the accompanist - this should be the piano accompaniment and NOT the vocal score.

A mask - you will have the option to remove your mask when you are performing your song and monologue. 

For Summer of Horror:

Everyone interested in Summer of Horror will need to submit a video audition. This includes actors who have done Summer of Horror in the past, and actors who are auditioning in person for the musicals. You can use the same monologue--we just need a video version of it for the horror film director.

Please "slate" at the beginning of your video. Slating means you say your name/age/title of the piece you're doing.

Your piece should be no longer than two mintues. 

Please submit your video audition by March 30th. 

You will receive a link to a video submission form after you complete the Summer Stock Production Form.

The Addams Family: High School Edition

(For actors grades 6-12, for the 23/24 school year) 

July 5 - July 30

Directed by Mimi Katano

THE ADDAMS FAMILY, a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, features an original story and it’s every father’s nightmare: Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family– a man her parents have never met. And if that wasn’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before– keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

But when Nemo is captured and taken to Sydney, Marlin faces his fears and sets off on an epic adventure across the ocean.

For song and monologue auditions

You will be seen individually in a 5 minute slot. Please prepare one monologue (a speech by one character.) For musical auditions choose and excerpt from a song. Your monologue should be 1-2 minutes and your song should be a verse and a chorus. It's important that you choose a monologue from an existing play so that there is context. 

As much as possible, choose a song from a musical and a section that best shows off your singing ability. You will need to bring a sheet music with accompaniment so that we can hear you sing with the piano.
