Auditions: July 15-16 @ 7pm
Clear Creek Community Theatre in Nassau Bay, TX announces #auditions for its upcoming production of “SHOUT! – The Mod Musical”. Auditions are Sunday & Monday, July 15-16 @ 7pm at the theater. Production runs September 7-23 on Fridays & Saturdays @ 8pm and Sundays @ 2:30pm. Cast requires 6 women (5 singing, 1 non-singing).
VOCAL: Prepare a song in the style of 1960’s pop that showcases your vocal range. Please bring a recording of your music on digital media, or sing a cappella.
DANCE: There will be a dance audition so please come dressed prepared to move.
ACTING: Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script, mostly in monologue form. Do not prepare a monologue in advance.
ACCENTS: All characters except the Yellow Girl have British accents. Accents are not required for the auditions, but encouraged.
BLUE GIRL: Age 25-30. A blue-blooded fashion model with a high soprano belt – low Bb to High C. Blue is sophisticated, poised, cool and aloof but finds her true passion in life by the end of the show. Her accent would be higher-class. Sings lead on: Don’t Sleep in the Subway, You’re My World.
GREEN GIRL: Age 35-45. Mezzo with Shirley Bassey-like belt. She is a good-time girl. Blousy, middle class, and zany, she is a bit frayed at the edges, and hopelessly single. A comedian is needed. Sings lead on One-Two-Three, Goldfinger, I Can’t Live Without Your Love.
ORANGE GIRL: Age 30-45. Soprano with belt – low Bb to High Bb. The mother of the group, Orange is domestic and maternal. Wise, soulful, and mature, she is slowly asserting new-found independence. Sings lead on I Only Want to Be With You, Wishin’ and Hopin’, All I See is You
RED GIRL: 18-30. Soprano with belt – low Bb to High C. The baby of the group, Red is quirky, enthusiastic, and naïve. A hopeless romantic, she is insecure about her looks and somewhat clumsy. Sings lead on How Can You Tell, To Sir With Love, and Those Were The Days.
YELLOW GIRL: 22 – 30. Alto with a big rock diva belt – F below mid C to belt Eb. Yellow is an uninhibited and brash American. She is a ray of sunshine with a surprising vulnerability. Sings lead on Son of a Preacher Man, I Just Don’t Know What To Do with Myself, and Shout!.
GWENDOLYN HOLMES: 40+. Non-singing. Gwendolyn is the Advice Columnist for SHOUT! Magazine, a fictional pop culture magazine. The Girls make most of their important life decisions based on Gwendolyn’s recommendations, which turn out to be…..not such good advice, in some cases. Her advice becomes less and less relevant as the show progresses.
Note: Those auditioning solely for Gwendolyn do not need to prepare a song or participate in the dance audition.
