MEDIA THEATRE'S 'VOCALIST 2016' AUDITIONS ARE MAY 17
"The Vocalist" and "Vocalist Junior" claim titles that are representative of the professional music theatre company’s mission of professional music theatre. The summer event sets the tone for The Media Theatre’s focus on musicals and music theatre education. It is produced by Media Music Theatre Company, the professional non-profit music theatre organization which has a full season each year with its Broadway Series and youth programming.
Auditions for “The Vocalist” will be held Tuesday May 17 from 6pm to 8:30pm. The contest has produced several performers who have gone on to appear in professional productions at The Media Theatre and at other regional theatres, including Ava Briglia who was a top five placer during "Vocalist Junior" and is currently in Broadway's hit show "Matilda", playing the title role.
All ages may audition on the same night and will be placed in the proper category according to their age. “The Vocalist” is for ages 14-24 while “Vocalist Junior” is for ages 7-13. The actual contests begin on stage in front of a live audience in July.
Between 35-40 contestants will be culled from the auditions for both versions of “The Vocalist”. The winner of “The Vocalist” and “The Vocalist Junior” will receive a cash prize to assist in furthering their education or career. Iron Workers Bank sponsors the competition.
There is a $25 registration fee for the auditions at The Media Theatre. All auditioning must bring sheet music for the pianist. Any audition song is acceptable for both age groups.
