Can you sing, can you dance, can you act? If the answer is yes to any of those questions, SaskExpress would like to hear from you. The touring company is about to embark on its 40th anniversary Summer Tour, and is going around the province searching for talent.
That means a trip to Yorkton, which will happen on March 1, 2020 at the Anne Portnuff Theatre.
What do you need to audition? Vocalists will have to sing 32 bars – one verse, one chorus – of two contrasting songs, a short monologue or story. They must also be prepared to showcase any special skills they have, and be prepared to do a group movement call. They may also need to learn a short harmonic piece for a group call.
Dancers, meanwhile, will have to prepare two contrasting pieces under two minutes. They will also prepare a short monologue or story. They must prepare to showcase any special skills they have as well, and do a group dance call.
There will be a mobile jack, CD player and keyboard player for accompaniment, but no keyboard player. Those auditioning can bring a backing track or play either the keyboard or any instrument they choose to bring.
Anyone auditioning has to wear clothing they can move in, appropriate dance shoes for any dance styles they choose to demonstrate, or sneakers or dance shoes for vocalists so they can participate in the movement call.
SaskExpress will also accept video auditions from people unable to participate in person. Those auditions can be submitted until Feb. 29, 2020.
