Into the Woods – Audition Information
Auditions: Mon 15th & Tues 16th December 7pm – 10pm
• 10 minute audition slots
• Prepare a song of your choice (appropriate to the role you are auditioning for) OR;
• Select a number from the show
• You will likely not get through performing your entire song due to the time constraints of the audition process. Be
prepared to be politely stopped during your number. With this in mind perhaps present the passage of the song which
best demonstrates your suitability for the role.
• Please provide clear, well marked sheet music for the audition accompanist. Backing tracks and acappella auditions will
not be accepted.
• You will be asked to do a cold-read of some script. We are looking for a character interpretation – not perfect script
reading ;)
• Be prepared to consider an alternative role to what you might see yourself as. There are lots of terrific roles in the
woods!
• You may or may not be asked to comeback for a callback on Wednesday 17th. If you are, you will be supplied with a
passage of music from the show we would like you to familiarise yourself with.
Callbacks: Wednesday 17th December 7pm – 10pm
• When you are asked to attend the callback at your initial audition, you will be supplied with an approximate timeslot in
which you will be seen. Please ensure you are on time – and understand that there may be a wait involved.
• It is absolutely not expected that you learn the show excerpt note-perfect. Please familiarise yourself with the section
by notebashing, listening to soundtracks etc. We are more concerned with your personal interpretation than your ability
to quickly learn music.
• You may be asked to stay around in order to be partnered with other actors auditioning for roles opposite you (Eg Baker
& Bakers Wife).
Notification:
• Successful candidates will be notified by phone on Saturday 20th December. Unsuccessful candidates will be emailed.
