2015-16 Audition Schedule at Hickory Community Theatre

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

Hickory Community TheatreAuditions are open to everyone! Ethnic diversity is strongly encouraged,  and is part of the theatre’s vision.

HOW AUDITIONS WORK:

Auditionees will be reading from the script. Scripts may be checked out for 48 hours with a $10 refundable deposit. Come upstairs to the HCT office to pick one up. It is highly recommended that auditionees read the script before auditioning.

For musicals, prepare a song you feel confident in singing. Try to select a song that is the same style as the show for which you are auditioning. (Melodic songs like show tunes, church music, folk songs, etc. are better than jazzy pop songs.) Bring sheet music if possible; no recorded accompaniment.

There may be dancing or improvisation as part of the audition.

Please dress in clothes you can move in.

Please, no flip-flops.

Please look carefully at the rehearsal schedule and performance dates. Being in a show at Hickory Community Theatre requires a great time commitment. If you will only take a larger or smaller role because of your own time concerns, or if you are auditioning for just the experience, WELCOME!–but please let the director know your intentions.

For RugBug audition information, please go to the bottom of this email.

ALL ACTORS MUST BE AT ALL PERFORMANCES

Email pam@hickorytheatre.org for further information.

RugBugs Information

RugBug Theatre @ HCT is an opportunity for young people to perform for our youngest audiences. RugBug actors’ ages range from 6-17 years old. Actors rehearse, learn lines and blocking, wear costumes and perform on our RugBug stage. There is no cost to the actor. All actors must be at all performances. Auditions are open to everyone! Ethnic diversity is strongly encouraged, and is part of the theatre’s vision. No experience is necessary. The best way to prepare for auditions is to practice reading out loud from any book, speaking loudly and clearly. For auditions, actors will be reading from the script, and doing lots of improvisation (so wear clothes you can roll around in).

Actors need only attend one audition date. All actors must be AT LEAST at first grade reading level. Email pam@hickorytheatre.org for further information.
