Audition Call! FORBIDDEN BROADWAY (Greatest Hits, Volume I)
Forbidden Broadway, (written by Gerard Alessandrini) is an Off-Broadway cabaret revue sharply spoofing show tunes, characters and plots of contemporary Broadway musicals. It mocks such productions as Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, Les Miserables, Annie, Spamalot and Rent to name a few, as well as targeting famous Broadway actors, writers and composers, producers and choreographers. This is a medium sized production, including some chorus work. It will be under the artistic directorship of Melissa Franson. Pauline Harskamp will be the musical director.
We invite auditions for singers in both solo and chorus roles. There will be some movement and dance required from both leads and chorus. Those people wishing to be part of chorus only will have the opportunity to audition within a group setting. If you cannot make the group chorus audition you can still audition for chorus as an individual. (See audition schedule below) Should you wish to be considered for smaller ensemble or stage work please book an individual time slot.
Since this is a parody of Broadway musicals, we would ask you to prepare a number that showcases your vocal (bring a copy of your music, pianist provided) and comedic talents or choose one of the following numbers and request music by email:
- Defying Subtlety
- Dolly Is a Girl’s Best Friend – Carol Channing imitation required
- Liza One note – Liza Minelli imitation required
- I Dreamed a Show
- Somewhat Overindulgent
- It’s too High
- Cameron MacIntosh
- Old Cats/I Enjoy Being a Cat
