Footloose Cast Auditions



In a nutshell... 


1. Sign up for a time slot on signupgenius: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c054eaaad2ea5f49-footloose

2. READ the entire audition packet, sign and attach all forms necessary.

3. Prepare 30-45 secs (16 bars) of a Musical Theatre, Rock n' Roll, Pop, or R&B song. 

4. SHOW UP to BOTH your individual audition and dance audition and if you are called back, attend that as well. 


Detailed information below... 


PREPARE: 30-45 seconds (about 16 bars) of a musical theatre song. Sheet music is preferred– we have an accompanist that will play for you. If you bring a CD or have the music on your phone, it MUST be instrumental (no words). It is helpful if you have a way to play your music as well. 

BRING: Your completed audition application meaning all forms signed and attendance record printed and attached, your sheet music, and a headshot/resume if you have one. Be sure to give your teacher recommendation form to an academic teacher of your choice. You will not be allowed to audition without all these materials with you and completed.

ATTIRE: Wear clothing that is appropriate to the role you are auditioning for. If you are not auditioning for a specific role, dress professionally.

LOCATION: Seaking Theater

DANCE AUDITIONS: Anyone auditioning MUST come to the dance auditions as well as complete a vocal audition. Whether you consider yourself a dancer or not, we would like to see everyone move... this IS a musical and musical theatre is singing, acting, AND dancing! The dance auditions will be held from 3:05-5:30 on Thursday, Dec 21st. 

CALLBACKS: Callbacks will be posted the night of the last audition date, Tuesday, December 19th and will be held on Dec 20th after school (at 3:05). You will not have to prepare anything, everything will be taught to you at the callbacks, however it would be helpful to be familiar with the music from the show as we will be working very quickly. We will also be giving you scenes for you to cold read with others. Again, these will be given to you at callbacks, you do not prepare anything at home. Just come ready to work quickly. Callbacks can run very long, so please anticipate being at school until at least 6:00. You will be released when you are not needed any further.  

For more information about how auditions work at CdM, review the "How to Audition at CdM" document on Mrs. Jecmen's school loop page locker. 

Please have your sheet music prepared properly. A video on how to do this presented by Mr. Weed can be found by clicking here: https://youtu.be/0kN67wifv7Y

Theatre classes 2017-2018

Thank you all for your amazing auditions both live and on video. It was a VERY impressive group auditioning and made the decision difficult. Please know if you did not make Drama II or Drama III, you did make Drama I and will be placed in the class automatically. 


We do have spots (very few left) available, so if you have not yet auditioned, please contact me at jjecmen@nmusd.us to submit a video. 


I am SO looking forward to next school year with this stellar group as the new CdM High School Theatre troop!
