Capitol Players Pro is proud to present "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" this February! This production features a cast exclusively comprised of college students and professionals. One major element of this production is the cathedral choir, which assists in the narration and tone of the story with Latin mass themes. We are now opening a casting call for members of that choir (SATB), which will likely number between 15 and 25 participants. The vast majority of the text for the choir is in Latin, so a background in singing in foreign languages (while not required) will certainly ease your learning process.
The schedule is concentrated but minimal for choir members until tech week to maximize your time. Please review the following required rehearsal times. If you have multiple conflicts, we may not be able to consider you for the choir, but you are still welcome to audition.
To audition for a role in this choir, please submit the following in an email to email@example.com (Angie Dee, director).
Please include the following with your submission:
Conflicts with the above schedule
an audition video of 30-60 seconds in a classical style (foreign language optional; contemporary or pop auditions will not be considered)
All video auditions are due Monday, December 5th. Some candidates may be assigned callback material to learn and submit; others will be accepted or denied on the basis of the audition. Know that some material will be assigned in advance and expected to be prepared for the first rehearsal. It may be as simple as researching/practicing specific Latin pronunciations or self-teaching a few vocal lines; the month following the audition deadline will be sufficient time for this process.
The pace of learning in rehearsal will be fast, and the review workload outside of rehearsals will be significant. That being said, this is a magnificent show that already features an incredibly talented cast. You will grow immensely in this process and enjoy a memorable experience participating in this production. We hope to receive an audition from you!
Again, please send all auditions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have questions about the audition email itself, those may be directed to email@example.com.
