NICOLE TUNG – WICKED
Monday, March 1 at 6:30 PM
Based on the book, WICKED: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, by Gregory Maguire – this Tony and Grammy winning musical from Stephen Schwartz brings to life the story of Elphaba and Glinda and their journeys to becoming the famous witches of Oz. Nominated for 10 Tony Awards and 11 Drama Desk Awards in 2003, it is currently the 5th longest running show on Broadway. Right now, more than ever, we all want to be in a different world, right? So why not get whisked away to the Land of Oz? Bring your enthusiasm and dancing shoes for an evening in the Emerald City. We will do a very brief warm up and also leave a little time for Q&A after the audition piece. Please wear proper dance attire and shoes (no socks!) that you can move well in. We look forward to you joining us for One Short Day in the Emerald City! (We’re not necessarily dancing to that song.)

SCOTTIE WOODARD – GODSPELL
Monday, March 22 at 6:30 PM
Godspell is a modern retelling of the Gospels of Matthew in which an ensemble help Jesus Christ tell the parables by using a wide variety of storytelling techniques and a dose of comedy with an eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, and dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion. This show relies very heavily on a small tight knit ensemble of characters in which performers have moments in which they are leading the scene and songs one moment and the next they are a powerful support group for their fellow performers. We will be dealing with the 2012 Broadway Revival of the show which modernizes much of the style of both the songs and the book of the show. When casting this show I look for actors with a ton of energy, charisma and who are willing to commit to the silly and charming style of the show.
