Oliver! Auditions Workshop

Is this the first time you've auditioned for a musical and you're feeling a bit nervous about what to expect? (Or if you are a seasoned auditioner, please come, meet the directors and become more familiar with the show). Have you always wondered about what directors expect and look for during the audition process? Are you curious about how best to prepare for your audition?

Then join us for an audition workshop on Sunday, July 30, in the Ellen E. Ewing Performing Arts Center/(Saline High School Auditorium), 1300 Campus Parkway, Saline, MI

During this session, participants will be given an audition packet containing:
- Recommendations for choosing an audition song from the show or of their own choosing.
- A plot summary and background information about the show
- A list of roles available, character descriptions and vocal requirements for each
- A description of the required time commitment/ a rough rehearsal schedule for general ensemble as well as featured roles
- Tips about what directors will be looking for!

Additionally, those attending will have the opportunity to learn an audition song from the show OR get tips on how to choose their own song, and will have the opportunity to do cold readings and/or improvisational exercises based on characters and scenarios from the script, all with director feedback and input.

Students in Grades 1st -8th (Going into this Fall!) should plan on attending the first session from 2:00-3:30 P.M.

High school students and adults should plan on attending the second session from 4:00-6:00 P.M.

You don't have to attend the audition workshop to audition for the play. Please note this workshop is free.

Have questions or need additional information? Please contact, Artistic Director, Rebecca L. Groeb, at (734) 330-7327 or oliver@salineareaplayers.org

A fond memory for many, The Carol Burnett Show, which ran from 1967 until 1978, was one of television's most successful variety shows of all time. Key to its success were the wonderfully written comedy sketches featuring a whole host of characters, including some which parodied well-known movies or TV shows. Enjoy your favorite characters.

Oliver
Music & Lyrics by Lionel Bart
October 20-22, 2017
Orphaned Oliver Twist navigates the London's underworld of theft and violence, searching for a home and is picked up on the street by a boy named the Artful Dodger and welcomed into a gang of child pickpockets led by the conniving, but charismatic, Fagin. When Oliver is falsely accused of a theft he didn't commit, he is rescued by a kind and wealthy gentleman, to the dismay of Fagin's violent sidekick, Bill Sykes. Caught in the middle is the warm-hearted Nancy, who is trapped under Bill's thumb, but desperate to help Oliver, with tragic results.
Auditions for all ages: TBD
