**CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS**
Ages, gender, and doubling of parts are merely suggestions.
 
 
Bat Boy - A half-bat half-human creature often referred to as “Edgar”. Once brought into town, he longs to be accepted and

The Townsfolk/Ensemble:
Sheriff Reynolds - He is the sheriff of Hope Falls, West Virginia. He is well respected in the town but is coming up for reelection and wants to please everyone that he can. Male, 20-60. Range: C#3 - F4 (baritone)

They will directly interact with characters onstage but are only “seen” by the audience. Pan is also included here and has a solo. The Muses require strong dancing and singing ability as their role will be very important in this production. Must be comfortable wearing a leotard and body paint. Pan range: Eb3 - A4 (tenor) or Eb3 - C4 (alto)
 
**FINAL NOTE**
 
This show is going to be a great experience with hilarious doubling, breaking the fourth wall and audience interaction. It is important that those interested in this production are willing to give it their all since it is a high energy show and will require those involved to not be afraid to challenge themselves. Please give it your all at auditions and be ready to let your creative heart and mind come to life!

Show Synopsis from MTI web site

Into The Woods


Book by  James Lapine
Music and Lyrics by  Stephen Sondheim


2 Acts, Book Musical, Rated PG-13
Licensed Version (2009)

The Brothers Grimm hit the stage with an epic fairytale about wishes, family and the choices we make.

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless yet relevant piece and rare modern classic. The TONY Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.

The story follows a Baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to attend the King's Festival, and Jack who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.

One of Sondheim's most popular works, Into The Woods is a musically sophisticated show with the opportunity to feature actors adept at dark comedy. Designers will especially enjoy highlighting the fantastical elements of this magical word.

 

Into The Woods
Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
421 West 54th Street, New York, NY 10019

We've already posted here on the website, the character descriptions of the roles in the show. 
 
As far as the audition process goes, we'll open the hall doors one hour prior to the start of auditions. We'll have audition forms available, or you can print one from the website. You'll sign in, get an audition number and learn the dance audition. There will be a 'jazz' style dance for all to learn and a tap audition for those interested in tapping. Please DO NOT go out and purchase tap shoes if you don't already have them. You can do the tap audition in character shoes or jazz shoes if you need to.
 
When filling out the audition form, please be honest and note what conflicts you'll have if cast in the production. It will be important information to know when getting the rehearsal schedule compiled. 
 
There will be readings for the different roles, available when you sign in. Please feel free to look over all parts you're interested in auditioning for.
 
When the auditions start, we will take the first 5 auditionee's to the top floor for the closed audition. Each person will have an opportunity to sing their 32 bars of music. PLEASE provide SHEET music. No CD's please. After each person sings, they'll do their readings and end with doing the audition dance together.

Tips for Dance Auditions for Crazy For You

First of all, thank you for your interest in auditioning for Crazy For You! It’s a delightful show with many opportunities for dancing at various levels of ability. We will be incorporating some kind of movement in most of the numbers in the show, so there are many roles to fill!

In addition to the leads who all need to be able to dance, tap and sing, there are other character roles that we will be looking to fill:

Follies Girls (8-10)

These dancers need to dance, tap and sing well. They will perform more complex dance steps in the ensemble numbers and are featured in several other numbers on their own.

Ensemble Tappers (as many as are able)

These dancers will be included in ensemble numbers that have tap dancing involved (I Got Rhythm and Stiff Upper Lip). Their combinations will be simpler and will complement the Follies Girls’ rhythms to provide a fuller and richer tap sound.

Cowboys (8-10)

These men need to move well and be able to do at least some basic tap steps. They are featured in I Got Rhythm.

Dance Audition Tips

SMILE!  I want to see your personality shine through! The audience will be happy if you are happy, and you don’t smile with your feet, so “dance with your face”!

Go for it! I am looking for potential, not perfection. I realize that for some people, there is not enough time to learn a combination and perform it perfectly. But as long as I see that you are getting most of the steps and are able to recover quickly if you miss a step, you are showing me that you have potential.

Dance full out! If you play it safe and don’t do the steps fully and energetically, I won’t be able to see your true level of talent. I’d rather see you do it big and if you should make a mistake, think of it as an ”involuntary solo”, smile and just carry on! The audience doesn’t know the steps, so don’t let on that you made a mistake by making a face.

Have fun, good luck and I’ll see you at the auditions! I am looking forward to meeting you all!

Jan Gallagher

If you're unfamiliar with Crazy for You, go onto YouTube and search under "Crazy for You Musical" and you'll find a number of videos (some have the entire show). Watch those and try to familiarize yourself with the characters in this show. The music is Gershwin, and if you don't know Gershwin, please take some time to listen to it.

The end of Act 1 features a great tap number, "I Got Rhythm". Click on the link to get a sample of what our version will look like:
