Auditions for the Lyceum Theatre’s 2013 season will be from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 16 at the Lyceum Theatre, 114 High St. in Arrow Rock.
Appointments for auditions at other times can be made by emailing a picture and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. Auditioners should specify if there is a time of day that is best and if there are specific roles for which they would like to be considered. They should include in the subject line of the email “ARROW ROCK AUDITION.”
Each person auditioning must prepare 16 bars of two contrasting songs and one brief monologue. An accompanist will be provided. Children younger than 10 may audition with 16 bars of one song and no monologue if they are only interested in ensemble positions. Anyone who is not a singer may perform a monologue only. The Lyceum is seeking equity and non-equity actors. A dance call will take place at the end of the audition day.
