AUDITION – Sunday, January 9, 2022, 5pm @ AMELIA MUSICAL PLAYHOUSE

Show dates: June 30-July 3 & July 7-10, 2022

Amelia Musical Playhouse presents…Anything Goes, Directed by Nick Cooper

We are looking for a strong company of singers and dancers to create this dynamic cast. Please come prepared with a 1-2 minute musical selection of your choice that best shows off your vocal ability. Selections from the show are permitted. Please bring an accompaniment track to sing along with (a Capella auditions are strongly discouraged). There will be a dance component to this audition so please bring clothes that are comfortable to move in (tap shoes are not required although there will likely be a tap element to the audition).

Callbacks will occur the same night immediately after the initial audition so please come familiar with the show and score as you may be asked to cold read from the script as well as sight sing from the score.

If you are unable to attend this audition date, video submissions will be accepted. Please reach out to director Nick Cooper at coopernick1999@gmail.com with any questions regarding this or the audition process.
