Join Vanderbilt Off-Broadway for our 2018-2019 Fall Show and Mainstage auditions on August 29-31!
Be More Chill, our fall production, follows Jeremy, an awkward teenager and his struggle to fit in. Just when he thinks his social life can't get any worse, he discovers the mysterious SQUIP, a Japanese supercomputer that could give him the chance to finally be the cool guy. But he soon realizes this may come with a serious price.
The directors of this quirky, relatable production are looking for people with strong singing and acting skills and who would feel comfortable working in a cast with about 10-12 members. Performance dates for Be More Chill are November 2-4, 2018.
Pippin, our Mainstage production, follows a young man on his quest for an extraordinary life and where he belongs. This journey is guided by a mysterious and captivating performance troupe. This thrilling and magical production will have a cast of about 22-24 members.
The directors are looking for a strong ensemble: performers with any combination of strong singing, acting, and/or dancing skills. The ensembles' various strengths will be featured in different ways throughout the show. Performance dates for Pippin are January 17-19, 2019.
For each audition, please prepare 16-32 bars (30-90 seconds) of a song (musical theatre pieces recommended) that best showcases your voice. There will be an accompanist available, but feel free to bring your own backing track, sing A Cappella, or play an instrument to accompany yourself. Be prepared to do a short cold reading from the script that the directors will provide for you. Following your audition(s), you will be notified if you receive a callback, which will be held on September 2nd.
If you are planning to audition for either show, please meet in the Carmichael Towers East lobby anytime between 5-8pm and you will be directed to your audition location from there.
Everyone is welcomed to audition for either or both of these shows on any of the audition days! There is no prior musical theatre experience required to audition! Hope to see you there!
