Saturday will be music auditions, cold reads and a couple selected songs from the show. Sunday will be dance, more cold reads, and songs.
For the singing auditions you need to prepare a short song (16-32 measures of music will suffice). You can bring your music on a CD track, or if you have it on a smartphone/tablet we will have a compatible speaker available. There will not be an accompanist for this audition.
For the dance audition, please wear clothing that you can move in.
"Cabaret" will be directed by Nathan Miles ("A Doll's House", "Fiddler on the Roof"), with music direction by Daniella Michelle Mendez and choreography by Karen Salb of Maciolek School of Dance.
Also...we are looking for musicians as well, including a band that will be in the show itself. So pass the word along to your musically inclined friends, here is a chance to be in a musical even if you are not an actor/singer. See the end of this list for musicians needed!
Show dates are September 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 21.
