All roles are open to audition. The cast requires thirteen men and seven women, ages 21-65 years, as well as a 10-14 year old non-singing boy and a 60+ year old singing female. Most of the men are unemployed mill workers and all sing a variety of styles with considerable range, including challenging harmonies, while moving. The women (except for Jeanette) all sing in a moderate Mezzo/Belt range, including challenging harmonies. Except for 'Nathan,' you must be at least 18 years old to audition; Nathan candidates must be at least 10 years old.
*If you are auditioning for Jerry, Dave, Malcolm, Ethan, Harold, Horse, or Keno, you need to be comfortable enough to perform on stage in your underwear, a g-string and eventually, “the Full Monty” to be considered for these roles. Trust is a key word for our production – you will be taken care of respectfully and our final moment will be powerful, yet careful. Wear clothing to auditions that reveals your overall body shape accurately. You will not need to undress at auditions.
There are some non-dancing and non-singing roles, but everyone will sing and dance at auditions.
Auditioners must bring sheet music with them and be prepared to sing 32 bars, but no more than one minute, of a fully memorized show tune, rock ballad, R&B or Funk style song (not from THE FULL MONTY) that showcases their vocal range and in a style that is consistent with the character you are auditioning for. This should be something that you are very comfortable with, not something you just learned the day before! It is important that you perform your song, not just stand and deliver. Auditioners should mark their selection with a highlighter. An accompanist will be provided. No a Capella singing or recorded accompaniment.
Auditioners should also be prepared to read from the libretto and perform a brief dance combination that may be taught at the audition. Please dress comfortably for movement.
PARENTS of Children auditioning for the role of "Nathan": Please watch the original movie and find an opportunity to read the musical's entire script BEFORE your young man auditions. The movie is Rated R for language and differs from the play in significant ways. The script for the play is available from the library, book stores, or you can contact us directly for a perusal. Nathan sees and hears adult-themed content and, critically, drops the f-bomb (says “f**k” once - no exceptions). This role is strictly for a young male performer: no girls auditioning as boys.
