Cast auditions for Hairspray will be held Saturday, April 14, from 9am to 1pm at the Syracuse Community Center, 1912 W 1900 S. In an effort to reduce backlogs and long waits, please sign up online, at syracuseutaharts.org, and download an audition form. Although walk-ins are welcome, priority will be given to those with scheduled audition times. Please prepare a short excerpt (about 16 bars or 30 seconds) from a Broadway musical to sing in the style of the show. An accompanist will be available. Judges will also accept MP3 recordings. Bring your completed audition form, conflict calendar, and a headshot, if available. Callbacks will be Tuesday and Wednesday, April 17 and 18, by invitation. All roles are open, and all are volunteer positions. Cast members may be responsible to provide part or all of their costuming and/or props. Rehearsals will be Tuesday and Thursday evenings as well as Saturday mornings, with performances on July 12-14 and 16, which includes an additional matinée on the 14th. LeAnna Hamblin will be directing this production. 

Pit orchestra auditions will be held Saturday, April 14, from 10am to 12pm at the Syracuse Community Center. Tim Koster will be directing this orchestra, and auditions will be available on a first-come first-served basis. Please prepare an étude or other piece to play that showcases your talent and skill, and plan to possibly sight-read some music. Bring a completed conflict calendar as well.

 

Registration is now available for our Junior Theater Summer Camp, “On Broadway.” The camp will be June 11-29 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9-11am. Participants will be performing a musical revue during Syracuse Days. Register through the Syracuse Recreation Department, at syracuserecreation.com. We are also planning a full junior musical production in the fall. 

If you would like to volunteer to help with either of these programs, please email us at volunteer@syracuseutaharts.org.
