AUDITIONS For The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
WHERE & WHEN
Monday, August 25th: 6:00 – 10:00 p.m. Gordon Wilson Hall, room 307.Auditions will be on first come, first served basis. We will see folks individually or in small groups. Appointment times will be flexible, and everyone will be have an opportunity to audition for all three shows, if they wish.
Tuesday, August 26th:
- 6:00 – 7.:00 p.m. Gordon Wilson, room 307. These auditions are by appointment only and are reserved only for those who could not attend auditions on Monday the 25th. Please speak to the Production Stage Manager, Eric Mattingly, if you have a legitimate conflict on the 25th and would like an audition appointment on the 26th instead.
- 7:00 – 10:00 p.m. Gordon Wilson, room 307. Callbacks. We’ll post the callback list by noon in the GWH Greenroom.
Wednesday, August 27th: Callbacks may continue on this day, if necessary. Time and location TBA.
The initial audition will consist of a song cutting and a brief monologue.
- Songs should be from the musical theatre repertoire, but preferably not from Spelling Bee. Have your sheet music ready for the accompanist. It should be a cut of about 16 bars, or around 30 seconds. The start and stop should be clearly marked and not require the piano player to turn pages or dig through pages to follow the music. No taped accompaniment please. Something in keeping with the show, such as a comedic song or patter song would be preferable. If you are new to the department and don’t have any kind of song prepared, we’ll ask you to sing a small portion of a song from the show. Copies of those songs will be available in the Gordon Wilson Hall Greenroom, GWH 314, beginning Thursday, August 21.
- Monologues should be about 60 seconds long and memorized. We would prefer a monologue you have previously prepared that is not from the show. But if you are new to the department and don’t have a prepared monologue we’ll ask you to perform a short scene from the show. Those scene cuttings will be available in the Gordon Wilson Hall Greenroom, GWH 314, beginning Thursday, August 21.
- Callbacks will consist of scenes, songs and/or monologues from the show, and possibly some improv.
- Although there will be dance in the show, there will be no separate dance audition.
