"The Rocky Horror Show" Audition Information

Auditions for Pauper Players' fall production of "The Rocky Horror Show" will be held on Monday, August 27th and Tuesday, August 28th from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. with callbacks for all roles on Wednesday, August 29th. Both auditions and callbacks will be held in the Frank Porter Graham Student Union, room 2518.

Anyone who would like to audition should sign up for a time slot on a sheet in the Union Information Hub. The sign up sheet will be available by the first day of classes, Tuesday, August 21st. All who audition should prepare 16-32 bars of a musical theatre song that shows both vocal and acting range (no selections from the show, please). Those auditioning will also be required to do scales. Please bring sheet music as an accompanist will be provided. A capella and/or prerecorded music will not be allowed. Those auditioning should also plan to attend a dance audition on the night of their vocal audition. The dance call for both men and women will be at 9 p.m. In order to ensure that auditions run on time, please plan to arrive 10 minutes before your vocal audition and 10 minutes before the dance audition.

Rehearsals for "The Rocky Horror Show" will begin August 30th, with the show running at The ArtsCenter from November 9th to 12th. Rehearsals are generally every night, Sunday through Thursday, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., though depending on your role you may not be called for the entire time. The production staff will do its best to stagger call times as needed.

We would like to encourage anyone who is interested to audition, no matter their previous experience. A headshot and resume are not required, but please be prepared to list your previous experience on an audition sheet that will be available at the door.

More information about the show and auditions will be available at the Interest Meeting on Thursday, August 23rd at 7 pm.

At the meeting we will also discuss our season in detail as well as other ways to get involved with Pauper. We hope to see you there!

All questions regarding auditions should be emailed to
