AUDITION NOTICE FOR MUSIC BOX Friday 22, Saturday 23 October 2021 Thursday 28, Friday 29 & Saturday and 30 October 2021

 

Welcome to the world of MusicBox. As we work our way through this lockdown and social distancing, at SPT we are looking to what may be possible for the new season. It may not be in the way we would like our musicals to be with live music, singing, dancing and group numbers but we have given thought to how we can safely put on a musical for both audience and cast. For these reasons we are looking for singing to backtracks NOT to live music and with minimal rehearsals

MusicBox – the idea is best described as something like the TV series Gogglebox but with songs from the musicals.

 

The characters talk about the song and then someone performs it.

 

Performers will rehearse at home and become word perfect with just minimal rehearsals before the shows.

The directors will pull it all together. It is intended to be performed on stage, with a simple set, and performers singing to backing tracks. We are now ready to put this out to all our members and beyond to explore the possibilities of what you would like to do.

 

What are we looking for?

· 

Performers who would like to sing a song from any musical as a solo, duet or trio. ·

People that can character act in between the musical acts. · 

Voice over – to be off stage
