FORT WAYNE — The Arts United Center is holding a second round of auditions at 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 31. The auditions are for the musical “A Christmas Story.”
All auditions will be held at the Arts United Center, 303 East Main St., and applicants should arrive early to fill out paperwork.
To audition, prepare and memorize one verse of an up-tempo song or ballad which best shows off your voice, range and personality. Standard Broadway show tunes are best.
Be sure to bring sheet music (not just lyrics but actual piano music) in the correct key — do not expect the pianist to transpose your music on sight. Have all cuts or repetitions clearly marked. Place your music in a binder or tape the sheets together for the benefit of the accompanist. Pianist is provided.
Arrive dressed and ready to dance first, wearing clothes that show your body type (no baggy clothes). Wear clothing you can move in for the choreography portion of the audition, which will be taught on site.
Performances of “A Christmas Story” will run Nov. 7-22. To sign up, contact Eunice Wadewitz at [email protected].
