Auditions

Auditions for our upcoming season have not been scheduled.

Check back in September and October for information about auditions for A Christmas Carol and (we hope) our spring 2021 production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Grand Duke.

General Audition Tips for our Main G&S Productions:

Arrive early to register, please. Auditions for our main Gilbert and Sullivan productions are open format: you will sing, read from the script, and may be asked to do some movement  in front of the Casting Committee and other auditionees. Do not be surprised if a chorus of other auditionees sing the chorus responses to familiar G&S songs!

Chorus: No auditions are required, but you must attend one of our lead audition nights to sign up for the chorus; you are welcome to sing any chorus parts that occur in audition pieces.

Leads: Prepare one verse or about 32 measures of a song in English that shows your strengths, preferably from the Gilbert & Sullivan repertoire or classic operetta/musical theater. Bring sheet music in your key for the accompanist (bring two copies if you need one). There is no fee to audition; reservations are not required. You will also be reading from the script; sides will be provided and you will be given time to go over them. Bring a headshot and bio if you have one. We will have a camera available.

Casting will be done as quickly as possible. Roles will be offered by telephone; those not cast will be notified by phone or e-mail, and are welcome to join the chorus. Please do not share casting information on social media until the cast list has been posted on the Sudbury Savoyards’ website and Facebook page.

You can download the forms below and complete them before you arrive. We will have additional forms there if needed.

The Sudbury Savoyards welcomes those of all genders, ethnicities and skill levels to audition!
