Sister Act orchestra auditions

Details

  • Category: Youth Theatre in Tunbridge Wells

Full Description

Following the success of Les Misérables and Sweeney Todd School Editions and our live youth orchestras, Trinity Youth Theatre are performing Sister Act in August 2021 and are looking for talented young musicians to join us.

Open to anyone aged 12-21 as of 31 August 2021. No show orchestra experience or previous membership of Trinity Youth Theatre necessary.

Sister Act is the feel-amazing musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet! Featuring original music by Tony and 8-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty and The Beast, Little Shop of Horrors), this uplifting musical was nominated for 5 Tony Awards including Best Musical.

  • Auditions: Material will be sent out in June, with positions announced shortly after. Please note: these will be video auditions this year.
  • Optional but recommended play through: Sunday 25 July, 10am – 2pm
  • Optional but recommended sing through with cast: Friday 30 July, 10am – 5pm
  • Compulsory rehearsals: Monday 2 – Friday 6 August, 10am – 5pm
  • Performances: Friday 6 August, 7.30pm; Saturday 7 August, 2pm and 7.30pm
  • We are currently hoping we can go ahead with the show in the way we plan, but have backup plans in place in case we need to split it in two to accommodate distancing and bubble sizes. If so, we will add in additional performances but to ensure everyone gets as big an audience as possible, we will limit it to two performances per cast. This may involve performances on Sunday 8 August.

    Not everyone who auditions will get a space. It is free to take part, we just require commitment and a positive attitude.

    Participants get a show hoodie and two complimentary tickets to the show.
