Audition Description

An eclectic group of sixth-graders arrives at the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, each eager to win for very different reasons. Sweet and shy Olive brings her only friend (the dictionary) with her to the bee. Bold and hyper-allergic speller William Barfee uses his "magic foot" to propel him to greatness. Former champion Chip is struggling with his burgeoning puberty. Easily distracted Leaf is unconvinced that he's smart enough to be a challenger. Overachiever Marcy is disappointed by her consistent success. Overly enthusiastic Logainne Schwartzandgrubenierre only wants to impress her gay dads. In the hilarious, touching and catchy songs, each speller reveals his/her hopes, struggles and passions as they make their way through the competition. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.


Audition Requirements:
You do not need an appointment. You will be asked to sing, read, dance, and do Improv. Please prepare 16-32 bars of a song. You are welcome to sing from the show if you wish. Please bring either a flash drive with accompaniment, CD or sheet music that is clearly marked and ready for the accompanist to play. Your song must be from a Broadway musical. Please wear or change into clothes/shoes that are comfortable to dance in.

Landed role in a film within 2 weeks! I would like to thank Explore Talent for signing up my daughter Terah. She has only been with Explore Talent for about 2 weeks and received a submission request on her calendar for a role in a feature film. Everything went so fast. She is new to acting/modeling. She was scheduled for an auditon and within one week was notified that she got the part. She was so excited. This is her first project and it gave her the confidence she needs for other auditions. Thanks. Sonya Burnett
