AUDITION WORKSHOP: We will be holding an audition workshop on Sunday March 6 at 11:30 AM in Crown Down, the Dramat rehearsal space in the basement of 305 Crown Street. Attendance is not mandatory, but is a way for us to help anyone who is new to the audition process or would like guidance regarding their audition.  At this workshop, our music directors Noah and Nicole will teach a 32-bar cut of a song from the show that you can use for your audition, and our choreographers, Hank and Santana, will talk through what the dance call will look like. You will also have the opportunity to ask our director, Madison, any and all questions you may have about the process, commencement itself, or anything else you may want to know.

.  

SOLO AUDITION TAPES: By 11:59PM on Tuesday March 15, send an audition tape singing 32 bars (approximately 90 seconds) of any musical theatre song to comm@yaledramat.org and madison.garfinkle@yale.edu. You can have accompaniment, sing to a karaoke track, or sing a capella, whatever way you feel showcases your abilities the best. If you are unsure what to sing, we have provided a potential audition cut of a song from the show for you to use below, as well as guiding vocal tracks, sheet music, and an accompanying backing track that our music directors have prepared for you. This cut will be the same one taught at the audition workshop. 

.

DANCE CALL: The second major part of first round auditions is the dance call, which will take place in Crown Down. At this call, come in clothes you can easily dance in, and our co-choreographers, Hank and Santana, will teach you a couple simple combinations in the style of the show. We want to stress that THERE IS NO DANCE EXPERIENCE REQUIRED OR EXPECTED for your audition. Whatever level of dance training you have, even if it’s none, is good enough for us. You can find a video of Santana doing the combination on the “Dance Call Materials” Document below as well as a link to the accompanying music. You can use this resource to familiarize yourself with the combination before coming in if you would like, but the dance call will be run under the assumption that no one has practiced beforehand. 

In order to attend Dance Call, please sign up for one of the four time slots below by clicking on it. Make sure you are logged into your NetID in order to sign up! If you cannot make any of the dance calls, email comm@yaledramat.org and we will come up with an alternate arrangement.

NOTE: We are allowing those who do not feel comfortable singing to only attend dance call in order to be considered for any non-singing roles/a general dance ensemble. We are also allowing those who only want to be considered for the role of Zach to attend either a dance call or submit an audition depending on which medium they feel more comfortable with. If either of these applies to you, please email comm@yaledramat.org and madison.garfinkle@yale.edu.

If you feel comfortable doing so, please fill out this demographics form for the Yale Dramatic Association’s outreach records: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1wl_9ekE1JS1hS6ysJwhQSubAZplayEDHRNAT_cNNCN0/edit#responses
