Lynch and Paterson have announced virtual audition applications for their upcoming production of ‘The Classics of Rodgers & Hammerstein’ – with Musical Direction by Lucas D. Lynch and Chorus Direction by Samantha Paterson.
About the show:
More so than any composer and lyricist who have written for the stage, the songs of Rodgers & Hammerstein have become stalwarts of musical theatre repertoire. Enjoy a selection of R&H’s beloved tunes performed with a live symphony orchestra. This concert will be “some enchanted evening”.
Please read the Audition Pack before submitting your audition via Lynch and Paterson’s website. There are various paid and unpaid roles and you must be 18 years and older when applying to be involved and BIPOC performers are encouraged to apply.
All auditionees including chorus must submit a video audition. Video auditions will need to be uploaded to either Youtube or Vimeo and the direct link must be included in your audition application. Performers will need to prepare two contrasting 32-bar cuts of songs in the style of this show. At least one Rodgers & Hammerstein song is recommended. Pieces can be performed with live accompaniment or backing tracks. Pieces must be memorised.
