AUDITION NOTICE FOR THE PART OF LITTLE VOICE ONLY
(Auditions for the rest of the cast will take place in a month or so)
'The Rise And Fall of Little Voice' by Jim Cartwright
Directed by Robert Walsh
Produced by Rachel Offord
Production Dates – Monday 11th to Saturday 16th September
Date and time of audition – Sunday 9th April from 10am onwards at Chorley Little Theatre
Little Voice is a modern day classic. It is a working class fairy-tale about a girl with extraordinary talent. It is funny, tragic and a cabaret performance all rolled into one. What’s not to like!
LV – Female, playing age of late teens to early twenties (you must be 16 or over to audition)
Despite being so shy and hardly ever leaving her bedroom, she can sing exactly like the big divas in her record collection. So the person playing Little Voice needs to be able to do that!
The audition process
STAGE ONE: SINGING
Everyone auditioning will be asked to sing three songs from the following options:
- Song one: ‘Goldfinger’ or ‘Big Spender’ in the style of Shirley Bassey
- Song Two: ‘The Man That Got Away’ or ‘Get Happy’ in the style of Judy Garland
- Song three: ‘My Heart Belongs to Daddy’ or ‘I Wanna Be Loved By You’ in the style of Marilyn Monroe
If there are a lot of people at the audition then you won’t sing the entirety of each song. If you are asked to stop before the end don’t worry! It is not a reflection of your performance. You can choose to sing with or without a backing track. If you want a backing track, please come prepared with a backing track WITHOUT VOCALS! We want to hear your voice and your voice only. If there are a lot of people at the audition then not everyone will go through to the second stage.
STAGE TWO: ACTING AND SONG
Stage two will include:
- Reading of a short scene from the play.
- Singing ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ in the style of Judy Garland without backing track.
No matter how good the rest of the play is, if LV does not sound like Shirley Bassey/Judy Garland/Marilyn Monroe/a selection of other divas, the play does not work!
However if you:
- Don’t sound exactly like those people YET but think that you could.
- Haven’t tried impersonations before but have a great singing voice.
- Fancy auditioning for a bit of fun!
Then please come down and have a go!
