Please come prepared to perform 16 bars of an up-tempo (preferably) or ballad, contemporary Broadway song (1960-present). We'd explicitly like you to know you should come prepared with more than 1 selection because we're very likely to ask you for something else. Pick a song the character you want to play might have sung or would sing. Bring in an instrumental CD or sheet music for accompaniment. Please do NOT sing a song from Hairspray. On the day you do your singing audition, you must stay for a one hour dance audition. Every character in the show dances, at least a little.
Please note that the role of Tracy's mother has been pre-cast.
Callbacks will be held January 29th from 6PM to 11PM. Callbacks will be posted on the Studio Theatre door (CM122) by 5:o0PM on January 29th. All actors chosen for callbacks should plan to be at the Studio Theatre from 6PM to 11PM. It is possible that callbacks will end before 11pm. At the callback, you will be using this time to learn a song or two from Hairspray and perform it later in the evening. NOTE: YOU MUST BE AVAILABLE FOR CALLBACKS TO AUDITION!
Hairspray will rehearse Mondays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays from 7:30 PM to 11PM beginning January 30. An additional rehearsal will be added on either Saturday or Sunday; the day and time will be decided by the cast and director at the first rehearsal on January 30th. There will be an occasional dance rehearsal every other Friday beginning in February.
