Working in theatre, either acting or on the technical side, can help build your employment resume by improving your communication, collaboration and critical thinking skills, as well as increasing your confidence.
The theater section of the arts, languages and philosophy department will hold auditions by appointment for “Legally Blonde: The Musical” from 2-5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 13, in Room 138 Castleman Hall (choir room). Auditions are open to S&T students, faculty, staff, and community members with all levels of theater experience.
To schedule an audition, email Taylor Gruenloh at email@example.com. He is director of the performance and an assistant teaching professor of theatre in the arts, languages and philosophy department.
Auditions will be scheduled in 10-minute time slots.
Please prepare 16-32 bars from a song to sing for auditions. Bring sheet music for the accompanist to play or prepare an accompanying music track to play on your phone while you sing. Be prepared to perform a cold read from a section of the script. Readers will be on site to read with individuals auditioning. No dancing or movement component is planned at the audition.
What to bring:
You can prepare a resume indicating your previous stage experience and your history with dance and movement or fill out an audition form when you arrive. Include your preferred contact information and any major schedule conflicts for the spring. If you don’t have any previous experience creating a theater resume, it can be a simple Word document.
Rehearsals begin in February. The rehearsal calendar will be created around cast availability. If cast, you’ll be required to be at all tech rehearsals and performances with no exceptions.
“Legally Blonde: The Musical” will be performed at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 21, through Saturday, April 23 at 7p.m., and 2 p.m. Sunday, April 24, in Leach Theatre.
