VCDS is super excited to announce auditions for our first musical of the year, Ride the Cyclone! This show will be directed by Sonny Nightingale and music directed by Michael Denomme. Ride the Cyclone will be pre-recorded and presented online for everyone to enjoy at the end of November.
In this hilarious and outlandish story, the lives of six teenagers from a Canadian chamber choir are cut short in a freak accident aboard a roller coaster. When they awake in limbo, a mechanical fortune teller invites each to tell a story to win a prize like no other — the chance to return to life. A funny, moving look at what makes a life well-lived!
In light of COVID-19, all VCDS auditions will be held online this year. If you would like to be a part of Ride the Cyclone, you have until Monday, September 14th at midnight to record a video of you performing. All video auditions must be sent to Maliha and Jeff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
AUDITION REQUIREMENTS: Please prepare two songs (each 1-2 minutes in length) from the contemporary Broadway musical theatre canon that best showcase your vocal range and performance ability. No monologue preparation is required for the first round of auditions. In the video, you must state your name, pronouns if you would like, and which songs you will be performing.
In addition to sending in a video, please fill out this Google Form:
If you are unable to record a self tape of you performing, please email email@example.com for any accommodations.
If you are invited back for a callback, you will be contacted by VCDS with additional materials that you will need to prepare. From there, you will need to record another video of you performing by Saturday, September 19th at midnight.
