We do not accept video submissions. We will only consider people who have local housing and local transportation.

 

We welcome people from all ethnic backgrounds to audition and are committed to non-traditional casting.

 

We will not accept music that is not securely taped together. 32 bars of an up tune and 32 bars of a ballad, clearly marked for the accompanist. No pop selections. Choose music from traditional Broadway Musicals which show off your voice, do not choose music from a popular vocal artist which when played on a piano, without an orchestral arrangement, does not sound good and gives you no support vocally. The accompanist will decide if you have appropriate music and you must sing it in the key in which it is written.

 

Two Audition Workshops will be offered in March on Sunday, March 10th from 2pm-5pm and Saturday, March 16th from 2pm-5pm.  A registration fee of $25.00 will be required to attend.  This is a terrific opportunity. You will learn what music to choose for your voice, how to prepare the music for an accompanist, how to dress and conduct yourself at an audition.  Jenny Matteucci and Daniel Lockert will conduct the workshops and our staff will be on hand to contribute their thoughts. The location and timeline for registering will be listed here in February.

Further casting notices will be posted here. If you have questions, please contact Managing Director, Harriet Schlader, at 510-339-0241 or email harriet@woodminster.com.

 

Preliminary rehearsal/performance calendar posted soon.

 

Rehearsals are generally Tuesday through Friday 7-10:00 pm, and Saturday and Sunday 10-12 and 1-5 pm. Rehearsal commitments vary by role.
