Auditions – Independence Park Theatre

Please remember that every camper must perform thier auditions. Every camper will participate in each aspect of auditioning. That means, each camper will perform a monolouge, song and dance audition. There will be no exceptions.

Select Your Monolouge

Select a monolauge from the choices provided below, or feel free to choose your own. The monoluge must stay within a 45 second time frame. Please have the monolouge you select memorized to the best of your ability. You cannot bring the monolouge in with you to read or look at during your audition. Remember to speak clearly, projecting your voice, show emotions and show us your charachter. It is normal to feel nervous and scared, but do not worry…we are here to support you! Take a deep breath and show us what you’ve got!

Monolouge Selections: Ages 12 – 16

Pracitice the Audition Song

Our Music Director has chosen the following selection from the musical as your audition song. Please do not worry about memorizing the lines that come before the song, only work on the song and what is on the score below:

Gaston (Audition Cut)

The lyrics are found here:

Gaston (Audition Cut)

Remember, our team will go over this as a Camp-Cast before the auditions start. You may not be asked to sing the entire song but you should know it. After all, you will be learning it for the show, so might as well get a head start. Most importantly, we aren’t looking for it to be perfect, we are only looking for you to do your best. Do not worry about another person and how they may sound singing the song, you just do your very best…that’s all we ask.

Dance Audtions

Okay…don’t panic! Most of us feel like we have  two left feet and six legs when it comes to dance. Our Choreographer will teach the dance audition to the entire Camp-Cast prior to auditions. We will then take smaller groups infor the dance portion of the audition, where she will review the dance piece and give you a chance to clean up your audition. You will then perform the dance audtion with your small group. You may be asked to perform this a few times or individually. This does not mean something is wrong or you are doing a bad job. Don’t worry, we got you! 

Call Backs

Call Backs can happen on the first day of camp or at the very beginning of the secdon day. We are hoping to have them completed the first day. Call Backs are when we select certain Camp-Cast members to perfrom certain aspects and charachters from the producation. Their can be a range reason to recive a Call Back, from acting, singing, dancing or a combination of two or all of these things. Call Back resourses will be given when we start Call Backs. Please, please remeber that, just because you did not recive a Call Back…doesn’t mean that you are not being considered for a role. 

Cast List

We are hoping to email the Cast List after camp ends on the first day. If we can stay focused and keep on top of our time, we should be able to do this. Worse case scenario, we send out a Call Back list and get Call Backs knocked out first thing on the second day of camp. Either way, we will go into official rehersals on day two of camp.
