Audition Description

Auditions for the 2020-2021 Season

Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical
Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other's lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda's extraordinary personality.

Open Audition Prep: Please prepare 32 bars of a song similar in style, but not from Roald Dahl's Matilda the Musical. Accompanist will be provided. If you are auditioning for both musicals, choose any musical theatre song that best highlights your vocal range and abilities.


Of Mice and Men
George and Lennie, two drifters with dreams of living off "the fat of the land", have just arrived at a ranch in California to work for enough money buy their own place during the Great Depression. Lennie is a little boy in the body of a dangerously powerful man. It's Lennie's obsession with soft and cuddly things that makes George wary of new situations with the gentle giant's brute strength. George promises to allow Lennie to "tend to the rabbits" on their dream farm to keep Lennie under control and out of trouble. But when the lonely daughter-in-law of the boss is found dead in the barn with a broken neck, it is obvious that Lennie, albeit accidentally, has killed her. George finds Lennie in their agreed upon safe spot. George must decide how to deal with Lennie before the ranchers find him and take matters into their own hands.

Open Audition Prep: Please prepare a modern, realistic dramatic monologue no longer than 2 minutes


Pippin
Pippin features a troupe of performers, led by the charismatic Leading Player. The ensemble cast tells the story of Pippin, a young prince who longs to find passion and adventure in his life. To prove his loyalty to his distracted father, King Charles, Pippin goes to war. But when the Leading Player convinces the prince to fight tyranny, Pippin kills Charles and takes over the throne. Realizing his mistake, Pippin begs the Leading Player to bring his father back to life, and they oblige. The prince falls in love with Catherine, a widow with a young son. Pippin struggles to decide whether he should settle down and pursue a peaceful life or continue to make magic with the dazzling troupe of performers.
