The musical that tells the story of the Prince of Humbug, Phineas Taylor Barnum. Over the objections of his wife, Charity, Barnum attempts to create a show in which the main attractions are freaks of society. Included in this mix of characters are the oldest woman alive, Joyce Heth; the smallest man in the world, Tom Thumb; and to top it all off, a glamorous Swedish opera singer, Jenny Lind. Eventually, to appease Charity, Barnum agrees to give up the show and start a normal life. In the end, after Charity dies, Barnum returns to the circus business in grand fashion by forming a partnership with James A. Bailey. Thus, the two men form The Greatest Show on Earth.
Vocal auditions will be by appt. and should be no more than one minute. Choose an appropriate song in the classic or contemporary musical theatre style (or another song from Cy Colemans work). An accompanist will be provided, but you are free to bring your own. Bring sheet music in the correct key. Be prepared to state vocal range (high & low note). No karaoke or a cappella auditions. Dance/movement auditions will be for everyone called back from Saturday. Women should wear character shoes. Everyone should be in comfortable clothing. Be prepared to demonstrate any circus talents at that time. Juggling will be required from nearly everyone; however, we will have circus training for everyone cast. Auditioners may borrow scripts from MTS (for 2 days, with a $25 deposit) in order to become more familiar with the show. We encourage people of all ethnicities to audition. No pay.
