Casting Call for Boys and Girls for "Finding Nemo Jr." Show

Danville, IL, United States
ID: 567147Exp: 5/26/2024

"Finding Nemo Jr." Show is looking for kids ages 7-14 years old. Please see the details below. About the project: Marlin, an anxious and over-protective clownfish, lives in the Great Barrier Reef with his kid Nemo, who longs to explore the world beyond their anemone home. But when Nemo is captured and taken to Sydney, Marlin faces his fears and sets off on an epic adventure across the ocean. With the help of lovable characters such as optimistic Dory, laid-back sea turtle Crush, and the supportive Tank Gang, Marlin and Nemo both overcome challenges on their journey to find each other and themselves. This musical adaptation of the beloved 2003 Pixar movie Finding Nemo features new music by award-winning songwriting team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez (the team behind Frozen). Additional info: Prepare: Choose a song (does not have to be from this show) that best demonstrates your vocal ability. Bring sheet music or an audio track. What to Expect: You will sing only about 40-60 seconds of your prepared song. Mark your sheet music ahead of time so that you can show it to the accompanist quickly. Directors may cut you off early. If they do, they promise it’s not because they don’t like you. You may be asked to sing scales so directors can assess your range. You will audition individually with your song and scales. You will read scenes from the script, either alone or with other auditionees. Depending on the role you are trying out for, you may have a dance audition (usually in groups). Make sure you bring/wear comfortable shoes for your dance audition. Attendance at rehearsals is mandatory. Rehearsals will be on Sunday afternoons, and Monday and Wednesday evenings. Come to auditions with a list of any conflicts between now and July 21. Put all this information on your audition form. Most of all, enjoy yourself and let your personality shine through. This is about fun and community! Callbacks (if necessary): May 27, 6-9 pm Show dates: July 19, 2024, at 7:00 pm July 20 & 21 at 2:00 pm If interested, please apply.
