For your audition, please prepare a 16-32 bar selection of a musical theatre song (this times out to about 30 seconds-1 minute on a CD). We ask that you bring a backing track without vocals, as an accompanist will not be available. We ask that you not sing acapella. Be prepared for cold reads from the script and come dressed for a group dance audition.
Rehearsals for Hairspray JR will begin on Monday, June 23rd with a 2 week rehearsal intensive. For the weeks of June 23rd and June 30th, we will be meeting Monday-Friday from 9:00 AM till 5:00 PM for all-day rehearsals. We will NOT rehearse on the 4th of July. During these two weeks, we will be learning the entire show. After the conclusion of this rehearsal intensive, we will transition to rehearsals on Mondays and Thursdays from 6:30 PM-9:00 PM. This schedule will continue until tech week. The show runs August 15th-24th.
We will also be taking Hairspray JR to the Junior Theatre Festival, an annual festival held in Atlanta celebrating youth theatre from around the country. This year’s JTF will be held on Martin Luther King Jr weekend of January 2015. The student cost for this year’s festival is a $225 participation fee (includes lunch on Saturday and Sunday, a festival t-shirt, a JTF all-access wristband, a souvenir program, and a special Direct-From-Broadway performance). Hotel accommodations are an additional cost and will be arranged through the festival. If you’d like more information about the Junior Theatre Festival, please email us.
