Hello Auditioners:
Thank you all once again for coming out to auditions for Into The Woods. We were very pleased with the great turn out. Here is our list of call backs for all the characters. Once again, just because you did not get a call back, this does not mean you are not being considered for a part.

 If you are called back, please be ready to come in from 7-10 on Wednesday. If possible, we will be attempting to set up the call backs to have you only called when needed, so please check back on the website (or your email) for a specific time for specific parts.
 

Please take a look at the scenes/songs for the characters you are called back for. If you wish to print your own copy, that is fine, but we will have copies/scripts at auditions. If you are called back for part that you did not originally sing at your audition, please take a look at those characters' cuts as well. We will be doing some additional singing as well as reading from scenes at callbacks.

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

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:

It's pretty spectacular!!! If you want to be part of this amazing production,we encourage all to come out and audition! We're hoping to cast approximately 40 people for the show.

 
If you have interest in helping with SET BUILDING, please contact: John McAllister at 603-882-5478 or john.mcallister@att.net
 
If you have interest in helping out with any other aspects of this production, please contact our Producer:  Kathy Lovering at bobkat31@comcast.net
 
Our Props Chair, Cathie, says she'd be happy to have assistance with props. There are many props in this show.
 
Likewise, many other aspects of this production need assistance, so please consider helping!
 
If you have any specific questions regarding the audition or the show, please contact the Director:  Martha Daniels Holland 603-860-4936 or marthdh@gmail.com
