Coralville - City Circle Acting Company of Coralville will offer a free Singing Audition Workshop in preparation for their production of Hairspray.
The free audition workshop will give actors the opportunity to practice their audition piece and get feedback from the production team. The focus of the workshop is to rehearse an audition song with a live accompaniment. Each participant will be able to sing a portion of their audition song and receive individual coaching.
The singing workshop will be held Wednesday, July 6, at the Coralville Public Library. There will be two sessions, one at 6:30pm and one at 7:30pm. Actors may attend either session and are asked to bring sheet music for the song they plan to perform at the audition. If they have not selected a song, they will be given assistance at the workshop.
Participation in the workshop is not a requirement for auditions. Auditions will be held Saturday, July 9, from 10am to 4pm at the Coralville Public Library. Actors are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an audition appointment. Actors should prepare 16 bars of a 1960s pop song and bring sheet music; an accompanist will be provided. Actors without a prepared song will be given a song to sing at the audition. More information and role descriptions can be found here.
Hairspray will be the first production held in the brand-new Coralville Center for the Performing Arts. The hit Broadway musical inspired a major motion picture and won eight 2003 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The production will feature a large, diverse cast of actors, singers and dancers and will debut the new theater being built in Coralville. The show will be directed by Chad Larabee, with choreography by Leslie Nolte and musical direction by Kent Keating. Hairspray will be performed September 9-18, 2011.
