2014 Summer Musical RENT Audition Sign-Ups - Appointment Scheduling

Apr 9th 8:54pm • No Comments

Full RENT audition information and the online sign-up system will be up by the end of this week. In the mean time, we have received a few questions that we wanted to address:

1. What ages will you see at auditions? Per the director's request, we will not limit auditions to a certain age group, however, casting will be age appropriate to the roles in the show.

2. How big will the cast be? This will depend largely on the turnout we get at auditions, but we are looking to keep the cast size at roughly 16-20, including leads and ensemble members.

3. What type of music should I prepare for auditions? RENT is a contemporary rock musical, and therefore we want to hear you sing genre-appropriate music. Please - no "classical" music theatre, i.e. Rodgers and Hammerstein, etc. Something more appropriate would be a piece from Spring Awakening, Next to Normal, etc. You may also sing something from RENT. Please just pick something that shows off your abilities best in the style of the music from RENT.

Look for the audition sign-ups to go online very soon. We will also announce the incredible production staff of amazing designers that will bring the show to life this summer.

Stay tuned!
