Peter Pan – April Audition Information

Audition Dates: February 25 & 26, 7pm to 9pm
Callbacks February 29 by invitation
Director: Nashelle Jackson

A few things to note:

  • Audition songs must be kept to 32 measures or less than 90 seconds. Time limit will be enforced.
  • Auditioners for ‘Peter Pan’ must be 15 years old or older. All roles are open. The roles of Wendy, Michael, John, Peter and the Lost Boys will be selected from those who audition who are ages 15 and up.
  • You must bring your own accompanist or a track (no backup vocals). 
  • Be prepared to completely fill out the rehearsal calendar at your audition with any and all conflicts that may arise during rehearsal. The production team is sacrificing time to be at rehearsals and it is pointless to rehearse with no one there. Be clear on your conflicts. Any conflicts reported after casting may result in a change of role or require withdrawal from the show. (A tentative rehearsal schedule is attached below. Please know that this is subject to change based on need & availability of cast members.)
  • Performances are April 17-25. There will not be double-casting therefore actors must be available for all performances.

AUDITION TIPS FOR OUR 2019-2020 SEASON

We had an incredible Season 3 at Vernal Theatre: LIVE and cannot wait to have an even better Season 4. Below are a few tips and tricks that will help you prepare for auditions. Enjoy and we’ll see you at auditions!

1. Know the expectations and follow them. Read the notices that are posted – every audition is different and may require different things to be prepared. Come ready and knowing what the director expects you to give.

2. Confidence. It sounds simple but it takes practice. Walk in the door with your held head high. Be wary of shuffling feet. You don’t get sympathy points if you’re nervous, not feeling well, or having a bad day. Leave it outside the door. You are being sized up the minute you walk in, so practice good posture and body language before you arrive. And don’t forget to smile – that’s the lasting impression you want to leave.

3. Personality. Let it shine through!

4. Connection. Make one with the character you’re portraying and the production team. Be memorized on your audition material. That said, don’t ask who they (the production team) are. Introductions waste time, time you could use for showing off your acting chops. They are there to do their job, just like you’re there to do your job. You are equals. You’re selling, and they’re buying. Treat them with respect and courtesy, and they’ll do the same.

5. Find your spot. Wherever it is, there’s usually an X on the floor, done with tape. Find it and go stand there. That’s called a mark. (X marks the spot.) Why? Because the production team gets antsy when you’re too close. But don’t stay rooted to that X. Remember, the space is yours for two whole minutes. So feel free to move around.

6. Act. Acting means TO DO, not to talk. Find your actions and play them! (A wonderful resource is the book “Actions: The Actor’s Thesaurus” by Marina Caldarone & Maggie Lloyd-Williams.)

7. Stick to the time limit. If you prepared a monologue or a song, you (usually) get 90 seconds starting from your first line. And 90 seconds is plenty. So as to be respectful of everyone’s time, cut down your monologue or song. Rehearse with a stopwatch to measure how long it is. Then when you get to the audition, you won’t be rushed. And if they cut you off, don’t take it personally. It doesn’t mean you’re bad, it means they need to give everyone else time to show too.
