Everyone will sing “Bows – Let It Go” for their vocal audition and learn some simple choreography for a dance audition. Some students may also be asked to sing “Love is an Open Door” or “In Summer” if the directors want to know more about your vocal skills. These will be closed auditions. Only the actors and casting crew will be in the theatre. Callbacks will be posted on the SAAC Facebook page for the students who will be asked to return for scene readings. Review the Audition Side before arriving at Callbacks. Callbacks are for a second look at an actor. It does not mean these are the only actors being cast. The cast list will be announced September 8th.
All packs include the Audition Form and Information Sheet, but each has a different collection sheet music and sides. The Full Pack includes sides/scene readings for character roles and the sheet music for Anna, Elsa, Hans, Kristoff, Olaf or Sven that will be used at Callbacks.
HOW TO PREP FOR AUDITIONS: Review the audition materials and fill out an audition form. Students are encouraged to learn/review their audition song before auditions. The music, the scene reading, and audition forms are available online (click the blue boxes above), in the SAAC lobby, and at the informational parties. Want to know more about the production? Join us at the informational party to hear the music, sing along to the song, pick-up audition materials, and ask the director questions.
ABOUT THE SCHEDULE: The cast list will be announced September 8th. Rehearsal will be on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons 4-6pm beginning September 9. A Parent Meeting will be held September 14 following rehearsal at 5:45pm. Not every character will be needed for every rehearsal, especially Young Anna and Young Elsa. Schedules will be provided at the Parent Meeting. Doing a musical takes time and commitment from all involved. Please review the schedule to make sure you and your child can make the commitment to the project. Accepting a role acknowledges that you agree to the commitment required.
