Detailed Audition Information and Registration:

Please read before coming to auditions

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ONLY

Auditions will be held at The Lebanon Opera House. To enter, please use the stage door on the east side of the building. THIS IS DIFFERENT FROM PRIOR YEARS as LOH is under construction. If you park behind City Hall, you’ll see a white garage door on the back of the building. Take the sidewalk to the left of the garage door/building; the stage door is the second door on the right, just after the double doors to the loading dock. Please head up the stairs and to the right.

Registration is from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. There is an optional audition workshop at 9:45am which we encourage teens new to the program to attend. We will have an accompanist for you; a capella auditions are strongly discouraged.

Rehearsal Conflicts

When registering, please select ALL rehearsal dates where you have a scheduling conflict. There is also a box where you can type your conflict information and explain the conflict. Be sure to check your school AND family calendars as conflicts reported after auditions could result in the production staff recasting your role. (Please make a note for yourself about the conflicts you list as they will not be included in your confirmation email).

There will be both a dance audition and a singing audition.

Dance Auditions

For the dance auditions, please wear comfortable clothing. Please have character shoes (for girls), jazz flats (for guys) or clean sneakers if you do not have dance shoes. There will be time to change between the dance audition and the singing auditions.

Vocal Auditions

Please be prepared to sing a song from a musical that best shows your range and personality. The length should be 32 bars. (If you choose to sing something longer, the creative team may ask you to stop before finishing. This does not mean you won’t get a callback; it simply means they have heard what they need.) We will have an accompanist available to you. You must bring your own sheet music. Please do not audition a cappella.

Bring a water bottle and snacks/lunch.

Callbacks

For callbacks, scripts for readings and sheet music will be provided. In addition to reading various parts, you may be asked to sing parts of songs from the show. It is recommended that you familiarize yourself with the following songs as sections will be sung during callbacks: Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee RepriseThere are Worse Things I Could DoThose Magic Changes; Greased Lightning; All Choked Up. If you are planning to audition for Danny, please pay special attention to the beginning of All Choked Up.

Rehearsals

First rehearsal and read through (FULL CAST) will be on Saturday, January 11th. Regular rehearsals will be Tuesday and Thursday nights and Saturdays. (Not everyone will be called to every rehearsal.) Cast is expected to be at full day rehearsals during February break (2/16/20 – 2/25/20) and all rehearsals thereafter. Performances will be February 28, 29 and March 1, 2020.
