The Waldo Theatre is excited to announce its second musical of the summer, Jonathan Larson's edgy pop/rock operetta, RENT. Auditions will be held on Tuesday, May 21st at 6:30 PM and Saturday, May 25th at 4 PM.
Set in the East Village of New York City, RENT is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, RENT has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages.
We are searching for actors who love the show, love rock music, and are wanting to put the time in to build a tight knit ensemble. Currently, the show dates are set for August 16, 17, 22, 23, and 24 to accommodate college students. However, we are somewhat flexible, and willing to move the dates around a bit, so please audition, let us know your conflicts, and we will work it from there.
This will be a collaborative artistic effort, guided by Melissa Hearth in direction and Sean Fleming in music.
Please come prepared to sing something from the show OR something that is rock and roll-based. Bring sheet music (preferred) or a karaoke track on a CD. Due to the mature nature of this show (language, sexual content, mature topics), we are looking for high school students and older. Any teen under the age of 18 will need a signed permission slip from a parent or guardian, provided at the audition and turned in with the audition form.
If you are unable to make either of the audition dates, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a private audition. For more information, including details of the lead roles, see our Facebook page.
