Dural Musical Society Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves: Audition Information
What can you expect at the audition?
Singing: We will ask you to sing a song that "shows your voice off", and our Musical Director will check your vocal range. Choose a song that is suitable for a pantomime (most of the Disney types of songs are good examples of what you should sing). We will not need to hear the whole song – please prepare only the best verse and chorus. You may bring an instrumental backing track to play (a bluetooth speaker will be provided), or you may perform accapella.
Dancing: Our Choreographer will spend a short amount of time doing some movement work with you - so that she can determine whether you can feature in dance routines as a key dancer. If not, she'll know just how to choreograph to your strengths.
Acting: The Director will then ask you to read some of the dialogue from the show. This will be a chance for you to showcase your acting capability. He will ask you to do a cold read of a scene, then will give you some acting direction. He is looking for actors who respond well to direction and who connect well with the characters they are portraying.
What can you expect at rehearsals?
Rehearsals are held on Monday and Wednesday evenings, 7-10pm, commencing July 12th, 2021. Children under 15 are only required until 8:45pm each rehearsal. However, as we approach show dates, we may require children to stay back later for a few rehearsals. This can be discussed with our director.
