This summer join StarStruck as we step into the enchanted world of Broadway's classic, Disney's Beauty and the Beast, an international sensation that has been produced in 37 countries worldwide. Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, the stage version includes all of the wonderful songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice. The original Broadway production ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical. 
Disney's Beauty and the Beast offers a fantastic creative opportunity for rich costumes and sets, as well as the chance to perform some of the best-known songs from the past 30 years.
Directed by Lori Stokes & Courtney Stokes
Music Direction by Nancy Godfrey
Choreography by Francesca Cipponeri

    Auditions

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

    Prepare: Please prepare a 2 minute song from a Broadway style musical (Not from Beauty and the Beast). You will need to provide your own sheet music in a 3-ring binder (be sure it is printed double-sided and has both right and left hand accompaniment lines, not just a vocal line). Pick a song that is appropriate for your age and shows your range (vocal and emotional). Tell us a story through music. An opportunity to run through your song selection with our vocal director on a date prior to auditions is available at no charge. Details on how to sign up will be sent in your audition time confirmation email.

    Process:

    1. Dance- Actors will be taught a short dance routine which will then be performed together for the Artistic Team. 
    2. Vocal- Actors will be called up to sing one at a time. We ask that the Vocal Selection be performed without a mask.
    3. Sides- After singing, the actor will be provided with a short side (selection from the script) to read.

    What to Bring:

    1. Dance/Tennis shoes
    2. Clothes you can move in 
    3. Water bottle 
    4. Sheet music in a 3-ring binder (double sided pages, please)

    If Cast

    Fees: Tuition Fee is $850 per actor. First payment is due approximately one week after the cast list is posted. 3-month payment plan is available. Tuition fee covers the cost of costumes, but actors are expected to provide their own modesty clothing, shoes, make-up, and hair supplies. Limited partial and full scholarships are available. Contact the MainStage.StarStruck@gmail.com for more information.

    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 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 because of being cast in the show.

    Additional optional expenses include purchasing show merchandise and tech dinners.
