Night of Broadway Auditions

Fox Country Players announces auditions for the Seventh Annual “Night of Broadway” concert!

 

Audition dates are set for Saturday, December 2nd from 1-3 p.m.Monday, December 4th from 7-9 p.m. and Tuesday, December 5th from 7-9 p.m. at the Yorkville Congregational Church, 409 Center Parkway.

Meg McGarry has agreed to direct again this year, and she has decided to focus on more modern musicals and revivals.  Two years ago we did shows prior to 1970.  Now we’ll focus on more modern shows.

Auditioners should prepare 16-32 bars of any musical, preferably from the last 20 years, and provide sheet music. An accompanist will be provided. Singers may come at any time during the open time slots and will be seen on a first-come-first-served basis. Performers cast in our show may be asked to sing a different song and all song choices are at the discretion of the director.  All performers will sing in at least 2 chorus numbers. Solo opportunities will be available but not required.  Minimal rehearsals.  In order to do the best job for you, our accompanist requests that pages be taped together, or better yet, be in a notebook.  Books are great if they can stay open!  And PLEASE do not expect her to read the music on your phone!!

We always put together a variety of pieces for soloists, duets, small groups, as well as the entire ensemble.  Some singers may be in multiple numbers.  We are planning several group numbers, so everyone will have a chance to sing, even if you aren’t a “soloist.”

**Songs will be assigned to those cast and handed out at our first rehearsal in  early December but we will not meet again until January for rehearsals.**

Our fundraiser will be a two performance event again this year! Saturday, February 17th @ 7 p.m. with a silent auction and a matinee show on Sunday,  February 18th @ 2 p.m.
