Hey everybody! Welcome back to school and back to life as a Regent!
From the vantage point of a theatre major, this is a ridiculous time for me. This semester I am expected to go to huge mass auditions to attempt to find a summer theatre job. These mass auditions require an audition ranging from 60 to 90 seconds with a cut of a song and a monologue. As of right now, I have been to one of these auditions (the Ohio Theatre Alliance audition this past weekend) and happen to be signed up for two more (Midwest Theatre Auditions and the Wisconsin Theatre Auditions). I've gotten one callback from a theatre called Amish Acres, which is in Indiana.
On the topic of auditions, there's a big one at here at school! This coming Saturday (Jan. 29th), the Rockford College Performing Arts department will be holding auditions for the Spring production of Guys and Dolls! Everyone is welcome to come and show your stuff. The auditions will go a little something like this:
~10 AM-11 AM: Dance Auditions. Bring dance wear!
~11 AM -12 PM: Lunch Break
~12 PM-1:30 PM: Vocal Auditions. Prepare a 32 bar cut of a 40s song!
~2 PM-5:30 PM: Acting auditions
It'll be tons of fun and an extremely high energy show. Definitely hope to see all theatre enthusiasts there.
Until next time!
