NAMED ROLES
For those who wish to audition for a named role, you will need to attend a group choreography session (30 minutes) plus an individual audition for music and dialogue (10 minutes). Bookings can be made via our website: www.segueproductionssa.com/auditions

Dialogue Requirements:
Please prepare the dialogue extracts that you can download from our website. During your audition, the director will workshop these extracts with you.
While these do not need to be memorised (you can if you wish!), it is expected that you are familiar with each extract and understand the context of the scene from which they are taken.

Music Requirements:
The music component of your audition is in 2 parts. Please be prepared for both components.
1) Please prepare a song of your choice that showcases your vocal ability. This excerpt must not be from the show. The musical director would like to see a character song for your personal selection of no longer than 32 bars. You must supply your own sheet music for your piece.
An accompanist will be provided on the day. Backing tracks will not be accepted. Your sheet music must be in the key you wish to sing in (be aware that sheet music is often in a different key to recordings). Chord charts/lead sheets will not be accepted - it must be proper printed piano accompaniment.

2) Please prepare the relevant character music extracts that can be downloaded below. During your audition the musical director will workshop these extracts with you.

Choreography Requirements:
In the group choreography session for named role auditions, you will be taught a short piece of choreography. It will not be necessary to prepare anything for the choreography, but please let us know if you have any special talents! We would love to see your strengths!
Please wear comfortable clothing that you can easily move in. Chorus shoes are preferable for the women, however jazz or ballet shoes or jazz sneakers will also suffice. Men: jazz shoes or similar, no sports sneakers preferably.
   

ENSEMBLE AUDITIONS
For those who only wish to audition for ensemble, there are several group auditions for you to attend. If you wish to audition for a named role but also be considered for ensemble, you only need to attend an named role session, not the group ensemble session.

There is no need to prepare any dialogue, music or choreography for an ensemble only audition. They will be run as a workshop and all material (music, choreography and dialogue) will be taught and worked on in the session.

Please wear comfortable clothing that you can easily move in. Chorus shoes are preferable for the women, however jazz or ballet shoes or jazz sneakers will also suffice. Men: jazz shoes or similar, no sports sneakers preferably.
Each ensemble session will run for 90 minutes.
