AUDITIONS: FIDDLER ON THE ROOF 2018-01-16T15:10:52+00:00

This production of the classic musical is sure to be a highlight of 2018 at the Capitol.   Professional Auditions are by appointment only.  Submit headshot and resume directly to no later than January 16th.  You will be contacted for an appointment.  No calls please.

In the spirit of giving opportunity to local talent, we are holding auditions for females ages 10-15 to share try out for the roles of Bielke and Schprintze.  Please note that there is no guarantee that amateurs will absolutely be cast in these roles.   If cast, these are paid roles with an Actor’s Equity contract and actors are expected to be available for all rehearsals as needed.   This would be a wonderful opportunity to work in a professional production along side top Canadian talent.

OPEN AUDITIONS will be held on Monday February 12 from 4pm to 8pm at the Cameco Capitol Arts Centre in the Sculthorpe Theatre. No appointments necessary. First come first serve.

PREPARE a short song or a portion of a song. You may be asked to read from the script.  Karaoke or backing tracks may be brought in on any media device that has a headphone plug. You may also provide a link to a track.  There will be no pianist.

SUGGESTED SONG: “Matchmaker” Just the first part – See below

Matchmaker, Matchmaker,
Make me a match,
Find me a find,
catch me a catch
Matchmaker, Matchmaker
Look through your book,
And make me a perfect match
Matchmaker, Matchmaker,
I’ll bring the veil,
You bring the groom,
Slender and pale.
Bring me a ring for I’m longing to be,
The envy of all I see.
For Papa,
Make him a scholar.
For mama,
Make him rich as a king.
For me, well,
I wouldn’t holler
If he were as handsome as anything.
Matchmaker, Matchmaker,
Make me a match,
Find me a find,
Catch me a catch,
Night after night in the dark I’m alone
So find me match,
Of my own.
