Audition Requirements:
Prepare a one-minute monologue of your choice AND a song in the style of Cabaret that showcases your vocal and acting ranges. Smart phone connections will be available for playing accompaniment.
*Several versions of Cabaret exist, with some libretto differences and major variations in the orchestration and song list. We will be producing the 1998 version.
Principal roles are for 4 men and 3 women with a mixed adult ensemble, including 10-12 featured dancers. Adults ages 16-26 are given preference for SummerStock casting.
About the Show:
John Kander and Fred Ebb’s 1966 musical Cabaret depicts the cocktail of joyous debauchery and impending doom of the Weimar Republic in 1920s Berlin. Anglo-American novelist Christopher Isherwood experienced and chronicled the spirit of the late Jazz Era in Germany, before the rise of fascism, igniting the journey of Cabaret through its iterations as a novel, a play, a film, and three different versions of a beloved musical. Kander and Ebb’s signature writing style invite audiences to a party that we hope will never end, due only in part to the fact that we already know the ending.
