PLEASE SPECIFY IF YOU NEED A SPECIFIC VOCAL AUDITION TIME IN YOUR REGISTRATION EMAIL
Auditioners must attend the choreography audition on the same day of their vocal audition.
Auditions will be held in the 2nd story rehearsal room at ALT, 224 San Pasquale SW, Albuquerque, NM 87104.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, age, acting resume (or list of performance experience), a headshot (or recent photo), and contact information (phone number and email address). After receiving your email, you will be given a time slot for your audition.
For your audition please prepare a 1-minute (32 bars) audition song. Bring sheet music in your preferred key. Please have the sheet music in a three-ring binder with Beginning and Ending points marked clearly. No a cappella. An accompanist will be provided. Also dress accordingly (or bring a change of clothes/shoes) for choreography auditions.
All characters are normal denizens of Buffalo, NY. Unless specifically noted, all body types are welcome! Except for ‘Nathan’, you must be at least 18 years old before auditions. Nathan candidates must be at least 10. This show has adult themes and language. All ages and stage ages are pliable.
We need actors with comedy chops that can hit the depths and heights of reality. The audience must connect with these real people and fall in love with them, quirks and all.
Most of the men sing a variety of styles with considerable range. The women (except for Jeanette) all sing in a moderate Mezzo/Belt range.
We need good movers. No dance training or experience in any particular style is required, but many characters need to perform synchronized movement well while singing tight harmonies. Be prepared to dance!
Monty Men, If you are auditioning for the main 6 roles, or Keno, you need to be very comfortable with your body; enough to perform on stage in your underwear and eventually a G-string. Will we go all the way? What do you think? You must be prepared to do so and must agree to such to be considered for those roles. Trust is a key word for our production – you will be taken care of respectfully and our final moment will be powerful, yet careful. Wear clothing to auditions that reveals your overall body shape accurately. You will not need to undress at auditions.
Reminder to women: This show is not just about the guys and their underwear issues! The women’s roles are powerful, pivotal, and memorable with great songs. There is no heart without connection and the women are critical in creating the circle.
