2017 Teen Chorus Auditions: September 9, 2017
Teen auditions (grades 9-12) are held in September, usually on the first Saturday or Sunday after Labor Day.
Auditions are low-key and lots of fun. Teens are seen in groups of 6 -10. Each teen is asked to prepare a short song to sing unaccompanied; please see the above “Adult” section for important information about the kind of music you should choose for your audition piece. You will also participate in some group singing and dancing. Auditions will take a little more than an hour; arrive about 10 minutes early to fill out your audition form. Come dressed to move; no special shoes or clothing necessary but don’t wear tight skirts, platforms shoes, loose sandals or clogs.
The teens always bring a special energy to our Revels productions. In addition to joining the adult chorus on many of their songs, teens may be featured in a dance number or two; some productions may also provide acting opportunities for individual teens. We are looking for teens who are comfortable and confident on stage – kids who work well in a group and can share their emotions and enthusiasm with each other and the audience. Revels is unlike any Broadway-style musical theatre production they may have experienced. This is principally an ensemble show, and does not usually feature solos or specific characters teens can try out for. We ask a lot of our teens, but the rewards are great, both in terms of experiencing a major, professionally staged production and in the relationships they build not only within the teen group but with the entire Revels community of performers, production staff and volunteers.Learn more about auditions on the General Auditions page →
