Director/Choreographer: Sharon A. Wilcox
Music Director: Dan Ringuette
All roles are open to audition. We are seeking an ensemble of 19 performers for this production (6 principal men/3 principal women/2 featured men/ featured women/3 ensemble men/3 ensemble women). Auditioners must bring sheet music with them and be prepared to sing 32 bars, but no more than one minute, of a fully memorized rock style song (80’s style preferably, but not from ROCK OF AGES) 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 – THIS IS 80’s ROCK!
Auditioners should mark their selection with a highlighter. An accompanist will be provided. A cappella singing or recorded accompaniment will not be allowed.
There is a lot of dance/movement in ROCK OF AGES and everyone will be required to do a movement audition which will be done in groups, so please wear something appropriate. Specialist dancers will be required for several numbers – these will come out of the ensemble. Auditioners may also be asked to read from the script.
Rehearsals will be held on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings beginning November 29th. Our initial read-thru will be held on Thursday, November 19th at 7:00pm. There will be one midweek rehearsal on Thursday, February 11, 2016.
The Warner Stage Company is a regional community theatre company and does not offer compensation or housing for performers.
Auditions for “ARSENAL” – the on-stage musicians for the production – will be held at a separate date. Because of the nature of the production, the musicians actually play a role and interact on several occasions with the actors on stage. The band will be costumed and required to attend some rehearsals before tech week. Please send an inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org for full details on the audition and compensation.
