Prospective cast may indicate preference for roles. We recognize that the characters in Loserville are written using she/her and he/him pronouns. However, we encourage all transgender, non-binary, and gender variant artists to audition for any role with which they feel they identify.
Please bring a calendar with all conflicts during the entirety of the rehearsal period.
Bring a performance resume and headshot if you have one or both.
Loserville is a show that will feature fun, high energy choreography so come to the audition ready to move. Dance or Jazz shoes / Dance Sneakers. Character shoes are not required.
For vocal audition, come prepared to sing with 16-32 bars of music in the style of the show (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhWYt2GN3RI&list=PL_0q76ruaFatsYDsg3CGbDYIyu0YNncSx) that can show off a rock quality to your voice. Please be sure to bring sheet music for the accompanist preferably in a binder so they can follow along.
As time permits, there will also brief cold dialogue readings from the show during the open audition.
