First Date The Musical – Audition

May 13 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Audition Contact: Lorna Mackie / 0413031509 / lorna@htth.com.au
Audition Venue: Bassendean Community Centre. 48 Old Perth Road, Bassendean
Audition Date(s): 13 May
Audition Time(s): 10am – 5pm
Preparation:
Auditionees should prepare 12 bars of two character songs, in a musical theatre style. Please bring backing with you, a CD is preferable. The point of the signing audition is to show your range and your characterization ability (and thus suitability for the show), therefore please chose songs with this in mind.
Please do not sing a song from the show.

You will also be asked to learn a short set piece which will be provided when you attend the auditions, and there will also be a short movement audition, the piece will be taught on the day so dress comfortably with this in mind.

Please also bring details of your availability and known schedule conflicts for July-October 2017.
Role(s):
Woman #1; Grandma Ida, Lauren, Facebook, Megaphone Female and Aaron’s Mother.
25-40, Female. Casey’s sister LAUREN is happily (somewhat) married to her highly successful husband, Kevin, and wonders out loud why Casey can’t break her bad habits and learn how to catch a winner. Constantly trying to fix Casey, Lauren is more concerned with listening to her own advice than actually helping her sister. GRANDMA IDA is Aaron’s dead Grandmother, who feels strongly that he should not hook up with a non-Jewish girl.
AARON’S MOTHER died when he was young, and was a career woman who’s shade regrets her lost relationship. Strong and emotive character.

Mezz Belt or Sop Mix (G3-F5)

Man #2; Reggie, Aaron’s future Son, Instagram and Rocker guy.
Late 20’s-30’s. Male REGGIE is Casey’s fabulously fierce gay and over imaginative best friend. Easily sent into a tailspin of jealousy, paranoia and drama.
AARON’s FUTURE SON is a rapping role
EDGY ROCKER/BRITISH GUY are bad boys from Casey’s past. Cocky and neglectful, they are overcompensating.
INSTAGRAM is a supporting chorus role
Baritone (G2-E5)

Woman #2; Allison, Google Girl and Megaphone Female.
25-35, female, great belt and some soprano.
ALLISON is Aaron’s ex-fiancé. Gorgeous, sexy, uptight, conservative, controlling and manipulative.

Mezz Belt or Sop Mix (G3-E5)

Man #3; Waiter, Casey’s Christian Father, Blaze, Twitter and Therapist. Male
A career WAITER, who dabbles with songwriting and performing on the side. A romantic. He wants nothing more than for love to blossom in his restaurant. A closet poet as well.
CASEY’S CHRISTIAN FATHER is a stereotype super-Christian, praising the Easter Bunny and denouncing Jadaism.
