A musical revue featuring songs from musicals that have won the Tony Award as Best Musical. Over 30 songs will be featured in original, musically imaginative ways that highlight the talents of the individual singers. While the content of this casual show with a cabaret-like vibe is still in development, one thing is certain: Audiences (and performers!) can expect the unexpected.

We are seeking a company of 8 - 12 strong singer/actors.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • Strong singing voice...we need cabaret-level performers, not just people who can "carry a tune."
  • Ability to learn music quickly
  • Ability to "take stage" and deliver a song
  • Ability to harmonize and blend into an ensemble when necessary
  • Dance/movement skills are a plus!
  • Flexibility, patience and a sense of humor! (We are, after all, creating a brand new show from "scratch"!)

PREPARATION:

  • 32 bars (maximum!) of a song which shows your vocal range and acting ability. We should see the "real you"!
  • Standard Broadway repertoire only, please. No rock, folk or country selections.
  • An accompanist will be provided. Bring sheet music in the correct key.
  • Wear of bring comfortable clothes/shoes in case you are asked to learn some musical staging.

Upon being cast, any non-members will need to become members of the Bergen County Players; details will be provided at auditions. No equity members will be cast for this production.
