Everyone who is invited to callbacks is needed for the entire time and will sing an assigned song from the show, read from the script and dance.

 

If you are not available for any of these audition times, please email ncctetc@gmail.com for an alternate time. We have limited slots available but will make an effort to see all potential cast members prior to callbacks.

 

ONLINE REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE 24 hours prior to first audition slot of that day. After that time please call 802-280-5047 and leave your contact information. If audition slots are still available you will be contacted.

 

Auditioners should:

  • Prepare 32 measures of a musical theatre song (not from Beauty and the Beast) that showcases your vocal range and personality.
  • Bring a copy of your music in the correct key with any changes, starting and stopping points clearly indicated. Music should be taped in order or otherwise arranged for no ambiguity/lost pages and for ease of reading by the accompanist.
  • We will sing people one at a time; everyone will dance and read from the show together.
  • When you register for an audition time you will be asked to note all of your known and potential conflicts with the current rehearsal schedule. Availability will be a consideration in casting decisions so please fill this out with as much detail as you can.   
  • A headshot is not required but you are welcome to bring one to the audition if you have one.   
  • For the dance audition, dress in loose fitting clothing or dance clothes; women, please wear high heeled shoes (character shoes are fine); men, wear dance flats or sneakers. Sneakers are fine for women if you do not have high heels.  Some roles require dance experience and some do not but we want to see how everyone moves.

 

 

All cast members will pay a $25 materials fee to cover the cost of librettos and scripts. This fee is able to be waived; please speak to production manager.
