Audition Prep and Scenes: Into the Woods

You will be auditioning for:
Laurie Riffe, Director
Amanda Nowell, Vocal Director
Andrew Smith, Choreographer
Mark Hargreaves, Music Director
Rodd Robertson, Assistant Director

Actors should be highly familiar with the music. The choice to memorize the music or bring it in the room with you is your choice to make. Keyboard accompaniment will be provided in the audition room. We ask that you consider the meaning of the words and do your best to fully act the song as you perform.

All FEMALES should prepare:

1) On the Steps of the Palace, measures 36-57 (“And then what if you are” through “stick to the steps of the palace.”)
2) Act II Finale, Part 4, measures 33-end (“Into the woods you have to grope” through “happy ever after!”)

All MALES should prepare:

1) Giants in the Sky, measures 2-36 (“There are giants in the sky” through “Not till the sky.”
2) Act II Finale, Part 4, measures 33-end (“Into the woods you have to grope” through “happy ever after!”)

(Females who wish to audition for male roles may do so, permitting the songs are in your vocal range.)
