To audition for THE BLUE BIRD, come on any of the dates above and be prepared to present any or all of the following:
If you are interested in an acting role, please prepare a 2-3 minute monologue from any play.
If you are interested in a singing role, prepare 16 bars from any song, preferably a contemporary pop or rock song (but anything will be fine!) You may bring a track as your accompaniment, you may accompany yourself, or you may sing a capella.
If you are interested in a dancing role, please prepare a short (1 minute) dance to a song of your choosing. Please bring the track which accompanies your dance.
Remember, you may present one, two, or three of the choices above. Any questions, reach out to director Chris Coddington at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you arrive at your audition time, please make your way to the classroom, check in with the audition monitor and fill out an audition form. You will be called in by the monitor when it is your time to audition. If you are interested in participating in the production as a technician or member of the crew, please contact chairperson Jennifer Read (email@example.com).
If you are cast, or if you are a member of the crew, you must register for a production class for Spring semester.
Maeterlinck’s charming fairy play is the tale of two young children who, at the request of a fairy (disguised as the old lady who lives next door), must go on a quest for the magical Blue Bird accompanied by a motley crew of enchanted companions--including a Dog, a Cat, Bread, Milk, Sugar, Light (they all talk!)--and visit the Land of Memory, the Palace of Night, a Graveyard, a sinister Forest, and the Kingdom of the Future. The children’s adventures are witty, achingly beautiful, moving and spectacular, and the play is threaded through with music, with song, and dance. Scads of opportunities for actors, singers, dancers, technicians and crew members in this, the very last production to be performed in our beloved Horseshoe Theatre!
Performances of THE BLUE BIRD will be the weekend of April 21-24, 2022.
