SPECIAL PROJECTS

October 9, 2017, 3:00-6:00pm
MTB 2013


The Mason Players offers Unified Auditions each semester. Casting is open to all degree-seeking Mason students with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5. Students audition for all shows to be produced in the semester in one session. Sign-ups for auditions will be located on the door of the Theater Office (PAB A407) as of Oct 2. You must also sign up electronically for the same appointments.

Copies of the 35MM scores will be available in the office. Please do not remove these copies from the office! Unable to sign-up? Walk-ins are always welcome and will be seen as soon as possible!

The Shows:
The auditions will be for The Mason Cabaret in Concert and 35MM: A Musical Exhibition. Full descriptions of each show, including all performance dates, times and locations, may be found online at http://theater.gmu.edu/performances/current_season.html or in the current Season Brochure. Note: Both shows perform in the Spring semester.

What to Prepare:
Prepare a song that demonstrates range. Accompanist is provided so please bring your sheet music.

For Mason Cabaret, 32 bars of a song from a musical.
For 35MM, 32 bars of a pop/rock/folk song OR a contemporary style musical theatre song.

You may prepare one song that serves both shows’ requirements (such as a contemporary musical selection) or two songs that each serve the respective show (such as a traditional/classic musical theater selection and a rock song). Your entire audition must not exceed two minutes!

Details:
Note: These Special Events rehearse for two weeks prior to first performance. 35MM will also conduct a week-long workshop Dec 4 – 8 in the evenings. Exact schedule varies by production. If cast, you must be available for ALL rehearsals.

Conflicts with other Mason Players Productions:
Please note that these two events do not conflict with each other. It is possible to be cast in both. However, The Mason Cabaret conflicts with our rehearsals for the production of The Imaginary Invalid. Furthermore, 35MM conflicts with rehearsals for both our productions of The Imaginary Invalid and The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail. If cast in either of these musical events, you must list all rehearsal and performance conflicts if you audition at the Spring Unified Auditions on Jan 24-25, 2018.
