AUDITIONS — THE SHOW MUST GO ONLINE!

Written and directed by Elizabeth Tracey

If you have any questions regarding auditions or anything else about this production, please contact producer Elizabeth Tracey at etracey@coralville.org.

Audition are open to students currently in K through 12th Grade. Submissions will be accepted until the end of the day on March 16, 2021.

This is a socially distanced production, produced under health protocols as put forth by the City of Coralville. Everyone involved with the production will wear masks at any in-person rehearsals. Rehearsals will be limited to individual actors working with a piano accompanist spaced far apart. Masks will only be removed when it is safe to do so for recording purposes. We will record the individual performances and edit everything together for viewing. Actor safety is our utmost concern. All staging will take social distancing very seriously.

ABOUT THE SHOW

The pandemic might have caused live theatre to go on hiatus at The Coralville Center for the Performing Arts, but when a group of theatre kids put their creative heads together, they decide the show must go online! This cabaret style musical consists of Broadway songs originally sung on stage by children, including:

  1. Tomorrow — Annie
  2. Giants In The Sky — Into the Woods
  3. I Won’t Grow Up — Peter Pan
  4. The Girl I Mean To Be — The Secret Garden
  5. Electricity — Billy Elliot The Musical
  6. Naughty — Matilda
  7. Where Is Love? — Oliver!
  8. You’re Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile — Annie
  9. Mama Who Bore Me/ Reprise — Spring Awakening
  10. A Million Dreams – The Greatest Showman

AUDITION PROCESS: ONLINE

Thank you for your interest in The Show Must Go Online. Because of COVID-19, auditions will be submitted online through YouTube to ensure everyone’s safety.

The show consists of Broadway tunes so please choose a song that you feel showcases your voice and that you enjoy singing. If you are having a good time, we are having a good time! We recommend choosing:

  • A song featured in the show.
  • An up-tempo musical theatre song that fits the style of a song in the show.
  • A verse and chorus of a song is plenty; no need to sing the entire song!

The show will be performed with a piano accompaniment. Please find links below to karaoke tracks that may assist you in your audition. A-cappella auditions are also fine, and if you have access to an accompanist or backing tracks of your own, you are more than welcome to use those resources.

We want to make this process as accessible to everyone as possible, so if you have questions please do not hesitate to ask. Instructions for uploading videos to YouTube can be found at the bottom of this page. PLEASE ENSURE YOUR VIDEO IS LISTED AS UNLISTED, NOT PRIVATE, OR WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO VIEW IT.

HELPFUL HINTS

  • DO include your name in the title of the video.
  • DO state your name at the beginning of your video and tell us what song you will be singing.
  • DO keep your audition brief — a minute or so is plenty of material!
  • DO tell a story with the lyrics and melody of the song. How does the song build?
  • DO make sure your video’s privacy is set to UNLISTED and not PRIVATE
  • DO be yourself. This show will be tailored to the performers selected, so we want to see your authentic selves.
  • DON’T worry about video production quality. If we can see and hear you, you’re fine!

Auditions for “Storytelling: A Pandemic Play”

PRODUCTION INFORMATION
Thank you for your interest in the upcoming Zoom production of Storytelling: A Pandemic Play. This new play, written by Young Footliters’ very own Matt Falduto, will be rehearsed and performed entirely on ZOOM! Audition to be part of this exciting new production! Please read the following information carefully before signing up to audition.

PLEASE NOTE THERE ARE THREE PERFORMANCES. Cast members must commit to being present for all performances.

Friday, March 12, 7PM
Saturday, March 13, 7PM
Sunday, March 14, 2PM

Because rehearsals and performances for Storytelling: A Pandemic Play are held online, this production has special requirements for actors and their families. Please read the Actor Requirements section below before signing up to audition.

AUDITION & REHEARSAL INFORMATION
Auditions are open to actors going into 5th through 12th grade, with one exception. Actors as young as 3rd grade can audition with an older sibling who is 6th grade or older. We encourage sibling auditions! Auditions are January 8 from 5 pm to 7 pm and January 9 from 10 am-12 pm. All auditions will be done over zoom. In addition, callbacks will be Sunday, January 10 from 1-3 pm. Parents are required to be present for callbacks as it will include a conversation about a performance space in your home.

Actors may perform a one minute or less monologue if they’d like, but this is not required. All actors will read scenes from the script. You can find the audition sides here.

Actors are encouraged to read the script before auditioning. Note that this is a new play and is still being revised. A final script will be given before rehearsals start. You can read the script here.

If you audition, you must be able to commit to the rehearsal process.  Rehearsals run Monday through Thursday from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm as well as some Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Not all actors will be called to all rehearsals.  Rehearsals start January 18. Please list all conflicts on your audition form. Any conflicts that come up later or are not listed on the form will have to be negotiated with the director.

The Tech Weeks begin February 27. No absences are permitted during the tech weeks.

ACTOR REQUIREMENTS FOR THIS PLAY
This will be a unique experience as all rehearsals and the performances will be done over Zoom. Therefore there are requirements that actors and their families must agree to.

  1. Actors must have a computer with a webcam and microphone.
  2. Actors must have a strong internet connection at their home. 
  3. Actors must have a location in their home where they can rehearse free from interruptions and outside noise. Since the rehearsing is happening in the actor’s house, the entire family must agree to be supportive of the actor’s need for a quiet place to rehearse without interruptions.
  4. Even more importantly, each actor’s home becomes the performance site during each of the three performance and families must ensure there is no noise during the performance as well as the dress rehearsals during tech week.
  5. During the callback process, we will discuss and decide on a performance space in the actor’s home.

This is a commitment made by the entire family. We ask parents think carefully about whether their family can commit to this. For example, families with small children may have to arrange for them to be out of the house during the performances depending on where in the house the actor will be performing. The parent of the actor must indicate their family can abide by these requirements on the audition form.

At the end of the form there will be an additional link that you will click on to be directed to schedule an audition time via SignupGenius.
