GODSPELL
The Broadway 2012 Revised Version 
Directed by Elena Kent
Music Direction by Dave Engelman
Special guest Choreographer from Ballet San Angelo: Erin Lane
with additional choregorpahy by Elena Kent

Auditions are Tuesday, January 22 at 7:00pm at Be Theatre
Please check back closer to audition date as we may have sign ups for vocal auditions. There will be significant movement/dance in the show, but experience is not necessary.  Please be prepared for movement at auditions by wearing appropriate footwear and clothing.  

Needs:
We are seeking adults and a select group of youth for our cast.  
Youth must be in 5th grade or higher to attend open auditions. 

Prescreens for younger students:
Students ages 3rd or 4th grade may request to audition if they have had prior stage experience in a major musical production. An earlier scheduled time will be slated for these younger students, and they may be invited to attend the full audition. Prescreen auditions for these students will be Monday, January 21.  Please email info@betheatre.com AFTER January 3 to request a time.

A NEW LOOK!
In the newly revised Godspell, the music has a more modern flair and we will not be doing the the traditional rainbow/clown look.  Instead, we'll be producing it with more updated looks in both costumes and set design.  Performed mostly in the round, we will be producing a wildly creative and contemporary show, unlike any Godspell production you may have seen or experienced!

WHAT YOU NEED FOR AUDITIONS:
Please prepare 32-64 bars of a musical theatre song or a contemporary one that is comparable.  We prefer sheet music and will provide an accompanist.  You may sing without music, but expect to sing scales with the music director so we can hear range.

We will also have cold reads from the script as well as improvisation. 

Cast will be announced Thursday, January 24 with a cast/crew meeting that evening.  

REHEARSAL SCHEDULE:

We will have NO rehearsals during SAISD spring break (March 9-17)

We begin rehearsals immediately after cast meeting on weekdays from 7pm-10pm.  Please consider this prior to auditions, especially those who are younger students.  Not everyone will be called to each rehearsal in the early weeks, and we are certainly willing to work around conflicts if they are listed on the audition sheet.  We will explain more about our rehearsal process at the auditions.

**IMPORTANT**
The performance dates are April 5-21. This special show will run directly over Easter weekend.  We will take Friday, April 19 (Good Friday) off, but will perform Saturday, April 20 at 7:30pm and Sunday, April 22 at 6pm. We are excited to share this special show with families during the Easter weekend!
