Announcing Auditions for ROYAL Night on Broadway

We’ve all been through a lot over the last several months. It’s been challenging in many ways. And yet, the human spirit is driven by the hope of creating a better tomorrow. We believe that young people bring light into darkness, and the theatre brings light to us all. We know you’re yearning to be part of another spectacular ROYAL production and so are we! It’s time to look ahead to a brighter future filled with music!

The ROYAL Theatre Company is excited to announce that we will hold auditions on August 24th & 25th for a dynamic and unique event that we’re calling “ROYAL Night on Broadway.” Let’s celebrate the brilliance, inspiration, and magic of musical theatre! This show is designed to lift the hearts and minds of our community through the power of theatre featuring Broadway showtunes from iconic and heart-warming favorites to vibrant and current crowd-pleasing hits. It will be the feel-good event of the year!

This will be unlike any production you’ve ever been in. Sure…you’ll have the chance to sing and dance with a talented cast of fellow ROYAL performers, but we’ve got so much more planned! We’re not going to give away all of our secrets yet, but we’ll share one BIG announcement:

The cast of this production will perform along with our special guest – Broadway and TV star, Chris Lee!

In his most recent on-stage performance, Chris played the roles of Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson in the Broadway smash hit Hamilton. You do not want to throw away your shot at performing along with this Hamilton star!

  • You should come prepared to sing the song of your choice from this list of songs.
  • You will not perform a monologue in these auditions.
  • There will not be callbacks. We will select our cast from the first auditions.

 

Audition Procedures:

  • Arrive 15 minutes prior to your audition time slot and REMAIN in your car! Do NOT come into the studio. We will text you when we are ready for you to come in for your audition, and we will open the door for you to enter through the front door of the studio (main entrance facing Main St. under the large ROYAL Theatre Company banner sign).
  • Students will audition one at a time – not in a group. The studio will be set up so that the performer and casting team will all be socially distanced with a minimum of 6 feet between each other.
  • Parents are not allowed in the studio. They can wait for you in your car or outside the studio. Please note that we do not want people gathering outside of the studio. There should only be one parent (or one set of parents) outside the studio at any given time during the auditions.
  • After you perform your song, you will exit from the studio’s side door into the parking lot.
  • In order to keep the audition process moving smoothly, we ask that you leave immediately after your audition is complete. This will help to free up parking spots for those who audition after you.
  • We are taking great care to make sure that you and everyone involved in the audition process are taking precautions to stay safe. Your ability to follow our instructions will be a point of consideration in the casting process.
  • If you would prefer to submit a virtual audition, you will need to complete the online registration form (including a headshot) on ROYALTheatreCompany.com and send your video to production@ROYALTheatreCompany.com by 5:00PM on Friday, August 21 at the latest. Videos received after this deadline will NOT be considered.
