Audition Information for Summer Vineyard productions Singing Broadway Performance Location: Lost Acres Vineyard, 130 Lost Acres Road, North Granby, CT Lost Acres Vineyard – Home
Performance Dates: September 18 & 19, 2021 Rain dates: Sept. 25 & 26 TGS is looking for 12 to 15 adventurous performers to sing in our September 18th-19th musical event: Singing Broadway! At the beginning of each performance, audience members will fill out a survey deciding which selection, from 2 pre-rehearsed songs, they prefer that each actor sings. Whichever songs receive a higher percentage of the vote are then performed live! Plus, there will be a few additional surprises along the way, due to 2 “random chance” spins of the Color Wheel. More on this later! What to Submit: A video of yourself singing snippets from 2 contrasting songs (1 ballad, 1 up-tempo). It is encouraged that you choose songs that best showcase your singing ability, whether it be your range or your personality or both. We hope that the show is a sort of chronology of different Broadway eras, so songs from either the Golden Age (40s-60s) or modern era are equally encouraged! Each snippet should be minimum 16-24 bars. You may sing a cappella or with a track. Auditions Open: Your video must be submitted no later than August 12th. Please send your video clips and your signed TGS audition and photo/ video release forms to email@example.com Between August 12th and 15th, you may be asked by the production team to submit a follow-up audition. Please be ready to send the follow-up by August 15th at 6pm. Age: Open to all adult performers. 16-20 year-olds are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult due to alcohol sales on the premises. Rehearsal Schedule: There will be 2-3 rehearsals in August based on cast availability and convenience, in either Simsbury or Glastonbury. These dates will be announced based on the availability you put on your audition form, so make sure your conflicts are very accurate!
