We’re one step closer to summer!
Auditions for adults, ages 16 and older, will be on Saturday, April 9; children ages 15 and under will be on Saturday, April 16; at the Mary E. Dardess Elementary School on Woodbridge Ave. in Chatham, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Adults will be considered for spots in the professional performing company for the summer, roles or ensemble casting in one or more shows.  Children’s roles include a boy and girl ages 8 to 12 to play the Polynesian children in “South Pacific” and a precocious pre- to young teen boy featured as Puggsley in “The Addams Family”; plus spots in one or more of the Mac-Haydn Children’s Theatre shows.

Please prepare a song and bring music in your key; an accompanist will be provided.
There will also be a short dance/movement exercise.
Tips for all auditionees are to pick a song that best shows off your voice, whether a ballad or up-tempo number – but please keep in mind that there are often overwhelming numbers of ballads.  If asked to only sing 16 bars, please choose the section which best shows off the strongest points of your voice.  Please consider the types of shows in the schedule and pick appropriate material to the majority of those.  People who are primarily singers are not expected to be polished dancers, but do need to show their movement ability.
