“Audition” for the Miscast Cabaret!

Performance: Miscast Cabaret May 12th 2023 at 7pm

Auditions: March 23 and 24 (Sign-up for an audition slot outside the Black Box)

Tech Rehearsal May 11th 3-6pm in the Black Box

Miscast is a style of musical theatre cabaret that leans into the comedy of playing outside of one’s preconceived “type.” Think of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson performing “I Feel Pretty” from West Side Story, or “Cell Block Tango” from Chicago performed by square-dancing country singers.

You can Audition with a song or scene.

One solo/monologue per person

Group songs/scenes are encouraged!

Bring your Karaoke track. I piano will be provided, but you have to bring your own piano player.

We actors all have those roles we love, but will never have the chance to perform onstage – whether because we are of a different gender, too old, a different race, or have different physical characteristics. But it doesn’t mean we haven’t dreamed of what it would be like to get a crack at it – just once! Well, here’s your chance to sing those dream roles!

Miscast Cabaret is a one-night event on May 12th performing songs from roles you would never be cast in. Changing the roles can alter the dynamic or meaning of a song, which creates a new perspective for the audience. The results are sometimes thought-provoking, other times hilarious. Maybe you’ll see a female Gaston or a male Eliza Hamilton. A Caucasian person singing Breathe from In the Heights or a near-adult singing Naughty from Matilda.

Join us for this entertaining mix-up of your favorite Broadway songs. All are welcome to sing!!! The Audition is only so we know what you are singing and how we can help you be better! Anyone who auditions will be cast!!

The Performance is May 12th at 7pm with a mandatory Tech rehearsal on May 11th after school/AP exam
