AUDITION CALL FOR SAVOY PRODUCTION
Calling all Ballet Dancers!
This December, the Savoy Theatre will produce the third annual showing of The Nutcracker (A Selection of Favourites from the Ballet) which was a marked success in its original showing in 2015 and again in 2016.
Directors/Choreographers, Cynthia Vokey and Kim Roper and Director, Cynthia Lahey return to head up the production team with Producer, Pam Leader for this exciting local ballet production. Therefore, we are calling on local dancers to come out and show us their skills!
We are looking for dancers of all ages and genders! We invite dancers whose shoes may have gathered dust in recent years to break them out and join in our adult audition sessions (ages 21 plus) as we need a wide range of dancers (varying skill levels) for this show! If you have lessons in ballroom or couples dancing that would also be an asset, but not necessary.
We are looking for ballet dancers (3 years of experience minimum) aged 8 and over, both male and female dancers. Pointe training is an asset. Casting 30-45 dancers. Must be available for show dates in December 2017. Potential show dates: Dec 2-4. Weekly rehearsal schedule to follow beginning in July 2016.
Auditions will be held at the Savoy Theatre, Main Stage on Tuesday, June 13, 2017 from 3-9pm and Wednesday, June 14, 2017 from 4-5:30pm (Group audition sessions of approx. 45 minutes). Call back auditions will be held, Wednesday, June 14, 2017 from 6-9pm. Anyone wishing to audition, must book an audition space via email – walk in auditions are not available. Please note, these are group sessions based on age and experience, therefore there is little leeway in requesting specific times. Thank you for your understanding!
Female dancers must wear a dark leotard or bodysuit, pink tights, ballet shoes. This will primarily be a soft shoe audition however if you have pointe shoes we ask that you bring them as there will be some pointe work. Hair must be off the face in a tight ballet bun.
Male dancers must wear black dance pants, a black or white t-shirt or tank top and either ballet shoes or jazz shoes.
Please arrive 20 to 30 minutes before your scheduled audition time to warm up and check in! To book your addition please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
An audition date for the Narration Roles of The Nutcracker will be done separately. Please watch for additional notices for that audition call in the near future.
