AUDITION PROCESS:

StageArt runs a unique audition process designed to give opportunities to everyone in a non-biased manner. This is a relaxed environment and allows artists to mix with the creative team in a workshop manner. 

OPEN CALL AUDITIONS (Sunday 16 July) All prospective cast members attend an open call audition, which requires them to learn a section of a song and choreography and then perform it for the panel. From this open call, the panel selects candidates to attend solo auditions. The panel will see groups through the day. 

SOLO AUDITIONS (Monday 17 July & Tuesday 18 July) Those who have been successful in gaining a solo audition now are given an appointment with the panel. You will be asked to prepare maximum 24 bars two contrasting songs, in the style of MEMPHIS that best demonstrate your vocal range and ability. You may also be asked to perform a cold reading in the audition.

CALL BACKS (Sunday 23 July) The final stage is to see every potential cast member in their potential role against all other candidates. Information will be given to all candidates at the same time.

All rehearsal and production details can be found via www.stageart.com.au/auditions
