Audition Info

Auditions are open to middle school students, high school students and adults

This production is minimally rehearsed. This production features dramatic readings of poetry. For the audition, we ask that you record a video of yourself reciting a favorite poem (with emotion/drama).  There will be no singing in this production. Chosen performers will receive one or two assigned poems for the actual production.   

 

All auditions will be submitted electronically. If there are call backs needed they will be in groups of no more than 10, socially distanced, and will follow safety protocols,

 

RECORDING TIPS:

  1.  Use your cell phone. Set on a tripod, selfie-stick, or have someone film you. State your name, the song title and show. Choose a location that has good light so we can see your face.

  2. Record yourself reciting a poem.  We would like to see you from the waist up and are looking for intonation, expressiveness, and engagement.

  3. You do not need costumes or props.

STEPS TO AUDITION:

  1. Complete the Audition Form at the bottom of this page (or on Airtable here). 

  2. Upload a headshot/digital photo as part of the form.

  3. ACTOR/CREW AGREEMENT (Download, print, sign. Upload completed agreement into form below or bring to first rehearsal)

  4. Record your audition and submit it to VMT by:

    1. Video submissions due to VMT by Monday, November 2nd. ​

    2. Please send/share your video file to valleymusicaltheatre@gmail.com. You can upload and share the file via Google Drive, Dropbox, or iCloud, or send using a file transfer service like WeTransfer, Hightail, TransferNow, etc. 

    3. Contact Jessica by email or phone at 509-972-6633 if you have any questions.

    4. Please do not text videos or try to email them directly, as the file size will be so greatly reduced it will not be useable. 

REHEARSALS:

Rehearsals will be held via zoom or individually.  Due to health restrictions we are not quite ready for live performances, and will be pre-recording pieces.  

Masks are required at rehearsals when you are not performing. Most rehearsals will be one on one with director/music director to minimize covid exposure risks, and we will be social distancing with a minimum of 6 feet. We will have health screening questions at the beginning of rehearsals. Stay home if you feel sick - we may have options of virtual rehearsals.  Please read actor/crew agreement and refer to VMT's COVID Preparedness plan for detailed descriptions.
