Auditions

The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Auditions will be held at the StarStruck Rehearsal Studios: 42307 Osgood Road Unit L, Fremont, CA

The Hunchback of Notre Dame musical combines the Disney film’s score with the more adult themes of Victor Hugo’s classic novel. It’s more Les Miz than Little Mermaid. You must be age 14 and up to audition.

Thank you to everyone who auditioned for Hunchback! It was some of the hardest decisions we’ve ever had to make. We hope that you know that we appreciate everyone’s time and effort during the process. Remember in this show everyone is important and needed. This story is epic and the music glorious and we can’t wait to get started. First cast meeting May 7th. An email will be sent out with all needed information next week.

Please confirm your role by Sunday April 1st. Email: starstruckoffice@gmail.com

Join the Choir!

StarStruck is looking for 35-40 singers from the community to be part of the choir that sings throughout The Hunchback of Notre Dame. The Choir is an integral part of our summer main stage production and will be asked to sing in styles as varied as Gregorian chant, Broadway ensemble, Wagnerian opera and contemporary pop. The choir will help provide the “big” and beautiful vocal sound that this show is known for. Singers should be age 16 or older. More information about the choir and sign-up form.

Audition Details

Prepare: Please prepare a 1-2 minute song from a Broadway style musical. Pick a song that shows your range (vocal and emotional). Tell us a story through music. Bring sheet music with the piano accompaniment (right and left hands, be sure the notes are not cut off the page) two sided rather than one-sided music is much preferable, please. Place sheet music in a hard-back (not floppy) 3-ring binder. There will be a chance for you to go over your music with our Music Director at a “practice audition” the week before your audition time. The link to sign up for a practice time will be on your Audition Confirmation email. If you can’t make a practice time, there will be a few minutes for you to speak with the music director before the singing portion of the audition.

What to Bring: Dance shoes (or tennis shoes), clothes you can move in, and all your audition forms

NOTE: Please do NOT include a headshot. Resumes are accepted and may be attached to your audition sheet.

Arrive: 10 – 15 minutes early to process your paperwork.

Ages: You must be 14-22 at the time of auditions. Ages outside of this range must get special permission from the Director at starstruckoffice@gmail.com.

Dates: Rehearsals will be held at the StarStruck Studios and the performances will be held in the Jackson Theatre at Ohlone College in Fremont. The show dates are July 27 – August 12, 2018.

Conflicts: Please keep conflicts to a minimum. Conflicts will play a significant role in the casting of this show.

Rehearsals: Rehearsals will start on Monday, May 7. Typically, the schedule is: Sundays @ 3-9p, Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays @ 6-9p. Wednesdays may be added as needed. A specific schedule will be given out

If Cast

Family Commitment: Starstruck Theatre expects performer attendance at all scheduled rehearsals. We will provide a weekly schedule with specific call times, but performers must be prepared to rehearse up to four days each week. We will take into account young children’s ages and bedtimes, but please understand that this is an undeniably strenuous schedule not just for children, but also for their families. We also require each family to contribute a minimum of 20 volunteer hours over the course of the production. There will undoubtedly be personal, family, and school events that will need to be missed as a result of being cast in the show.
