|SRJC to hold auditions for two plays Jan. 18-19
The Santa Rosa Junior College Theatre Arts Department will hold open auditions for roles in "A Few Good Men" and "Legally Blonde: The Musical" on Jan. 18-19, at 5:30 p.m. Auditions will be held in Burbank Auditorium on the Santa Rosa campus at 1501 Mendocino Avenue in Santa Rosa. Anyone is welcome to audition, no experience is necessary. All ages and types are welcome.
The roles being cast at the January auditions for A Few Good Men include one to two women, and 13-19 men. Roles range in age from 18-50s. While age-appropriate actors will be considered, younger actors will also be considered for older roles. Actors must prepare the following for auditions: a 1-minute monologue, preferably from a stage play written after 1930; ideally, the monologue should be memorized and rehearsed ahead of time.
Those who are called back will be asked to do cold readings from the script. Rehearsals start immediately after casting on Tuesday night, Jan. 22.
The roles being cast for Legally Blonde: The Musical include 14-16 women and 14-16 men. Roles range in age from 18-60s. While age-appropriate actors will be considered, younger actors will also be considered for older roles. Preliminary auditions will consist of two parts - a singing audition and a dancing/movement audition. See the Web site for specific information on how and what to prepare for the auditions: www.santarosa.edu/theatrearts/audition.html.
Those who are called back will be asked to do cold readings from the script, and if appropriate for the role, songs from the show and an additional dance audition. One copy of the script is on reserve in Doyle Library. Rehearsals will begin approximately Jan. 29.
