Actors are asked to prepare one contemporary monologue (max. 2 minutes) and be prepared from some improvisation. Candidates should be prepared to show some proficiency with accents - German (Hedwig), Eastern European (Yitzhak). In addition, actors are asked to prepare two contemporary pieces (approximately 1-2 minutes per piece) in the rock/pop vein. These do not need to be from the musical theatre canon. Please ensure that one piece is a ballad and the other an up-tempo piece. Actors are expected to bring sheet music for their song and an accompanist will be provided. A capella auditions are strongly discouraged.
It is recommended that actors familiarize themselves with the characters and material in the play.
ABOUT THE PLAY:
Winner of several awards and international acclaim, this musical transforms the theatre into a wild, sexually charged punk rock show. Hedwig, our transgendered superstar, leads the band and shares its story in a delightfully raunchy way. Known for its titillating material, Hedwig and the Angry Inch tells a tale of love and bittersweet regret through the eyes of those who live on the fringe of society. WARNING: Coarse language, mature themes and sexually explicit scenes
