AUDITION NOTICE: GCT Backwards (Cabaret)


This cabaret will give singers/performers a chance to perform a song that they may not get the chance to perform in a staged show, whether that is because of gender, age, body type, etc. Performers who are cast will get a chance to perform those songs as well as take part in some larger group songs. Embrace the nature of a cabaret and be creative and have fun! There are no specific roles defined for this show, but actors must be diverse, creative, and yet very able to act as a cohesive unit with other actors.

WHEN are auditions:

                Sat, Jan 11, 2:00pm-9:00pm

                Sun, Jan 12, 6:00pm-10:00pm

Please email jeschhofen@gmail to sign up for an audition time. Video auditions will also be accepted (to the same email address), but an in-person audition is preferred.

WHO should audition: Anyone age 16 and up. I cannot guarantee that the cabaret will not contain some adult language/situations. You will certainly not be required to take part in anything you are not comfortable with, but be aware you may be around some mild language, depending on the songs involved.

WHAT to prepare: 1 or 2 full songs. You will most likely be asked to perform both songs, if you have 2. Performers may also audition as a small group, if you wish. Any genre is allowed, but preference will be given to songs in the musical theatre canon. Please also bring a headshot and resume.

A piano accompanist will be provided. Please bring sheet music in the appropriate key and well marked with any alterations. You may not sing to a recording and you may not sing a cappella, unless that is the nature of the song itself. You may accompany yourself on whatever instrument you like. A piano/keyboard will be available, but please bring any other instrument you may want. Note that there will be no extra time allotted to “set up” whatever equipment/instruments you will need, so plan accordingly.

Thanks to a generous grant from the city of Germantown, artists participating in this production are eligible to receive a $100 gas stipend payable via a gas card on opening night of the production.
