AUDITIONS FOR

Director: Jim Fountain
Musical Director: CJ O’Hara

 

Step into the enchanted world of Broadway’s modern classic, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, an international sensation that has played to over 35 million people worldwide in 13 countries. Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, the stage version includes all of the wonderful songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice. The original Broadway production ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.

There are two days for auditions – you may sign up for either as each day will consist of the same activities. There are three one-hour slots to choose from for each day. These auditions will consist of singing a single selection of your choosing and a cold reading of a side from the show. Vocal selections should be 16-20 measures and you must provide your own sheet music in the appropriate key.  There will be NO dance auditions on the first two days.  Call backs are on Saturday.  Those called back will be asked to learn and perform the dance and also to do cold readings from the script. If you are unable to audition in person may submit a video taped audition directly to me at jdfariz@gmail.com.  This should include a song and a reading from the show.  There will be no call backs for these.

Doors will open 1/2 hour earlie for sign-in and sign-ups.
