Mary Poppins Jr.
Audition Information: 

 

Auditions:

Auditions for Mary Poppins Jr. will be held on Tuesday, February 11th and Thursday, February 13th from 5:30pm - 7:30pm.  If you did not sign up for an audition day, please contact us at projectsparx@firehouse.org.  During the Workshop students will:

  • Learn the fundamentals of auditioning

  • Explore tips and tricks to bring their audition to life

  • Rehearse their audition piece with peers

  • Receive feedback from our instructors

  • Audition in a fun, comfortable, low pressure setting

Students are asked to prepare a monologue and a song for the audition - memorization is optional but encouraged. ALL students will be a part of the production and will have the opportunity to audition for speaking parts and solos - auditions are for placement purposes only!

Our instructors are looking for self confidence, clear speaking and singing voices, and most importantly that you are having fun. Auditions can be scary and we want all of our actors to feel comfortable and enjoy themselves as much as possible.

Monologue Selections:

Please prepare one of the following monologue selections.  Memorization is optional, but encouraged.  Students should print a copy of their monologue to bring with them to the audition.
