How to audition.
Submit an audition video to firstname.lastname@example.org before 12:01am on Monday, October 19th
What to include in the email.
-Your cell phone #
-Your list of schedule conflicts (see the last bullet below for the rehearsal and performance schedule)
What to include in the audition video.
-Tell us about yourself. (At least: Name, age, what you're going to be for Halloween and what you’re doing with your life. Time limit: Videos longer than 2 hours will be DQ-ed ... unless of course they're funny ... but seriously, please don't send us a two-hour video:)
-Experience. Tell us about what kind of theatre/stage-related experience you’ve had. What role and at which theatre and how did you enjoy your experiences?
-Songs. (Sing at least one, but preferably two contrasting pieces that are around 1-2 minutes each.)
-What else? Whatever you want:) Have fun and be yourself! Help us get to know you.
DO NOT STRESS TOO MUCH ABOUT THE QUALITY OF YOUR RECORDING! For example: A simple video shot with an iPhone (or similar) camera will be more than sufficient. It can even be two or three videos if you can't figure out how to put everything together on one.
What happens after I submit my video?
-We will be in contact within one week!
What if I have other questions?
Show me the $$$
-Actors are paid between $150 and $200 per performance depending upon their role, age and experience. 9 shows guaranteed, likely at least 10 with the possibility of up to 12 depending upon demand. Everyone's contract (actors, musicians, technicians, crew etc) is negotiated individually.
-We have 3 actors already commuting from Orem/Provo area to be in the show, so if you happen to be from somewhere south of Logan, we can arrange a carpool. We will help cover gas costs of those commuters.
How big is the commitment?
-The rehearsal schedule is somewhat flexible (read: we can probably work around your schedule) up until the very end of November, after which rehearsals and performances become mandatory for all team members. See the schedule below and make sure to include any possible conflicts between Nov 2 and Dec 22 in your audition email along with the link to your video!
