Legally Blonde cast and band auditions

Details

  • Category: Youth Theatre in Tunbridge Wells

Full Description

Following on from High School Musical, Sweeney Todd, Les Misérables and High School Musical 2, Trinity Youth Theatre, Tunbridge Wells will be taking to the stage with Legally Blonde!

Our planned performance dates are Friday 19 and Saturday 20 February. We have backup dates of Friday 16 and Saturday 17 April, just in case we need to move them for Covid-related reasons.

This is a big ensemble show, with lots of opportunities for those not cast as principals. You don’t need to have done anything with Trinity Youth Theatre before – they are open auditions!

It will be open to school year 8 and above, though those in school years 8 and 9 will need parents to sign off the script in advance.

It costs £210 to take part, which covers rehearsal, licensing and props/costume costs. You get two free tickets to the show and a show hoodie or jacket to proudly show off round town in a socially distanced way. There are bursaries available for those on low incomes.

Rehearsals will start in October, with a mixture of in-person and Zoom rehearsals to ensure we can be as safe as possible. These will take place on Sundays (11am – 4pm) and Wednesdays (6.30pm – 9pm). Band calls will start in December, with auditions for these in October.

 


How to Audition

We are running the auditions in two stages. The first round will be dancing and singing, with your video auditions uploaded to our Dropbox.

We will then invite some people back for second round auditions for the principal roles where they will get a chance to perform alongside other auditionees and we will look at acting technique. If it is safe to do so, we will do this in person.

The deadline for audition videos is Saturday 19 September.

 

Step One – The Dance

Please learn and film yourself doing this dance from our Choreographer, Steph. Don’t worry if it isn’t perfect – the enthusiasm you show is the key.

At the start of all of your videos, please say your name. Please try and keep the camera stable.

 

Step Two – Singing

Next up, film yourself singing between 45 seconds and a minute of a song of your choice. No particular style is necessary, just something that best shows off your range and/or ability. Please make sure it is a video.

And finally, choose which of the following you want to audition for and film yourself singing this song. The Ensemble is a huge part of the show with lots to do, so even if you don’t fancy a leading role there will still be a chance to get involved.

We’re looking for a character performance and acting ability and not just vocal ability so please think about the character when you’re singing both songs.

You can audition for multiple parts.
