MOUNT VERNON - MTVarts will hold auditions for its summer production on Saturday, April 2, at warehouse 14 on Ohio Avenue in Mount Vernon, Ohio. Because of contract constraints, the title of the show cannot yet be announced.
To register for auditions, visit www.mtvarts.com, click on the registration link and complete the required information. Those auditioning must be at least 15 years old and may choose from a morning audition time or an afternoon audition time. There is one role for an actor between the ages of 7-10. Although the role is for a boy, it may be played by either boy or girl. Please email prodmanager@MTVarts.com if you wish to audition for this role. Auditions will be allotted in 5-minute increments and the vocal requirements for each role are listed on the website.
Call backs are on Saturday, April 16, also at warehouse 14. You will receive a phone call from the Production Manager if you have been called back for a specific role. In order to be considered for a lead role, your attendance is required at call backs.
Specific role information is available on the website. Please read the description of the roles very carefully.
If you are auditioning for an ensemble role (chorus) you should prepare a piece from a musical of your choice. You are not permitted to use a CD during your audition. Please provide sheet music as a piano accompanist will be available to play your music.
This show requires a significant amount of dancing. Everyone auditioning needs to learn the audition choreography video posted on the website. This will be required to be performed at the audition in addition to your vocal piece. A longer, more complicated choreography routine will be taught and performed at call backs. Those auditioning should come in appropriate clothing for dancing. Please no flip flops or bare feet.
Be our guest as we celebrate July 8-17 with our summer musical directed by Bruce Jacklin. Diane Dingler and Dane Heuchemer will be returning in their respective roles as music director and conductor.
This will be MTVarts’ tenth summer musical production following the successful presentation of last year’s "Mary Poppins," as well as its highly applauded predecessors "Shrek the Musical" (2014), "The Music Man" (2013), "Grease" (2012), "Cinderella" (2011), "Annie" (2010), "The Wizard of Oz" (2009), "Peter Pan" (2008), and Disney’s "Beauty and the Beast" (2007). The musical will be produced by MTVarts, and once again generously sponsored by First-Knox National Bank.
