Upcoming Audition Information
Don’t Touch That Dial! A Classic Radio Show
Co-directed by Kim Miller & Laurie Kuna
October 22-24 & 29-31, 2021
The 1930’s were considered the golden age of radio! Let’s go back and take a peek into the recording studio to find out why. A fun and lively cast of voice actors transport the audience back in time to the days of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Fireside Chats, The Shadow, and Fibber McGee and Molly.
Audition Dates / Times:
Wednesday, September 1, 6:30pm & Thursday, September 2, 6:30pm
LowellArts Gallery - 223 W Main St, Lowell, MI 49331
What to Prepare: No preparation needed. Actors will cold read short scenes from the play, provided at the auditions. Actors only need to come to one (1) of the audition dates.
Casting Needs: LowellArts is looking for 5-6 actors with great voice acting talent. Actors should be very vocally expressive and have a lot of vocal variety.
How do I pick a monologue/song for the audition? Pick something within the same genre and era of the play. Your monologue or song should reflect some of the same themes of the show you are auditioning for.
For example, if you are auditioning for Romeo and Juliet, it would be wise to pick a monologue about being in love from another Shakespearean play. When in doubt, choose a monologue or a song from the play you are auditioning for!
What should I wear to the audition? Wear something presentable and comfortable. You should be able to move comfortably in your clothes, however athletic wear is not necessary. Show us your sense of style but be sure to look neat and clean.
Research. Find out what you can about the play and the characters. Read the script or a synopsis before the audition.
Be prepared. If you are asked to present a song or monologue, prepare your piece well. Memorize your selection and practice it many times.
Be on time. Of course, life happens occasionally, but we want to know that you’re punctual and reliable. A good rule to live by: if you’re 5 minutes early, you’re on time. If you’re “on time,” you’re late.
Be kind to everyone and smile. Remember, your audition is like an interview, and it begins the moment you walk through the door.
It’s okay to be nervous! Just about everyone is nervous. Do your best to smile and have a good time. Take a deep breath and slow yourself down - trying to rush through the words will often lead to mistakes!
