The Production Team are asking that all auditioning prepare excerpts from the Rocky Horror Show, which will be provided once you email to book an audition time. Each person will be asked to sing 1-2 excerpts from ensemble works as well as their choice of excerpt for a leading or featured character which best suits their vocal range.

We also invite those auditioning to come ready to show their personal take on the character for whom they are auditioning. Whether that means costuming, make-up, or movement with their song is up to each individual.

As well as an individual audition, each person will be asked to attend a movement audition from 6-8pm on April 22, Savoy Main Stage. In this session you will be taught basic choreography and asked to perform it in groups. We ask that you wear fitted dance wear and appropriate footwear for this session. This is a group format audition, therefore special time requests cannot be accommodated. Thanks for your understanding!

Please bring a short resume (1 page) of relevant musical and theatre experience with a 4×6 print of a recent photo. Please note we are looking for printed copies only, not digital. Thank you!
