In this two-man musical spoof, a pair of aspiring playwrights perform a backers' audition for their new project - a big, splashy musical about printing press inventor Johannes Gutenberg. With an unending supply of enthusiasm, Bud and Doug sing all the songs and play all of the roles themselves, wearing hats with the characters' names on them and frequently switching said hats to indicate different characters. The hapless duo hopes that their crass historical epic (read: most of it is completely made up) will convince one of the producers in attendance to give them a Broadway contract - fulfilling their ill-advised dreams. Developed and performed for over a year at Upright Citizens Brigade, Gutenberg! The Musical! is now making its regional debut in downtown Jacksonville.
*16 bars EACH of a legit ballad AND an uptempo character musical theatre piece. Please bring sheet music - an accompanist will be provided no a cappella auditions or recorded accompaniment will be permitted.
*In addition to a standard audition presentation as yourself, be prepared to present both of your two 16-bar audition selections as different characters, including an old man or woman, a preschool-age child, an evil villain, and a young female ingenue. You are encouraged to add your own movement/choreography and accents to your "character" auditions. Keep it "real," but make us laugh!
*No prepared monologue is necessary, but you may be asked to cold
read from the script.
*There will be no movement audition - show us what you've got in your "character" auditions!
*Please bring a headshot and resume, if available, or a list of experience.
