FAQ:

* Frenchie Davis will be playing Nell.

* ALL ACTORS HIRED MUST BE LOCAL LA HIRES.


* Ken Page is directing and will be flying in so our Director session will be on May 9th and Producer Callbacks the following day (May 10th). This means everyone is ideally available both days and that turn around is going to be quick (doable, but quick).

* Please DO NOT LEARN MUSIC/SONGS FROM YOUTUBE VIDEOS. It will not match up with the sheet music that will be played for you at the auditions.

* SEE BELOW FOR CHARACTER NOTES...

* The cast will all be equity. This does not mean that we wouldn't consider non equity actors; however, you would need to join (or be granted some sort of concession) to be hired.


* The priority for us is vocals and personality; this comes first and then we factor in movement/dance skills. The tap is basic (shim shams and shuffles). No worries for now. Dancing will not happen until the final callbacks on 5/10.

- Please DO NOT LEARN MUSIC/SONGS FROM YOUTUBE VIDEOS. It will not match up with the sheet music that will be played for you at the auditions.


GENERAL NOTES:
Please do your homework and keep in mind the style and essence of the show when singing. Nothing modern or pop about this.

Please learn the actual sheet music from the score in the Dropbox folder Do not listen to Youtube recordings...they are not the same.

Use the lyrics as text otherwise it's just a cabaret park and bark.


For the ladies:
We may just ask to hear 32 bars of the following, but you should be prepared to sing the whole song.

For the men: We will most likely just ask to hear 32 bars of the following, but you may want to be prepared to sing the whole song just in case.

The tap for the ladies is basic (shim shams and shuffles). No worries for now. Dancing will not happen until the final callbacks on 5/10.

VIDEO AUDITION 411:

* You must be able to be a local LA hire to be considered for the show. No housing and no travel.

* All videos must be emailed to info@Florescasting.com before 5/3.

* Instead of just a "stand and sing" POV, it would be helpful to see some choreo within the song(s) as well. Something in keeping with the essence of the style of the show.

* Armelia and Charlaine will be tapping in the show, so a few shim shams and shuffles would be great to include. Tap shoes are not necessary, but if you have them...use them please.

* Please email videos using the following services: Youtube, Dropbox, Vimeo.
