Director’s Note


I’m back and ready for another fun time to create our production of ‘Oklahoma’ which is my favourite R&H. I’m looking forward to working with everyone, both existing members and new people and am keen to get going.

Some of you will know I’m all about telling a story and rooting what we do in truth and so what I’m looking for from everyone is that you come and be yourself and have fun! The show has some great characters and songs that have to be delivered as if it’s a brand-new musical – as a creative team we want to be excited by your performances. I’m looking to create a company that will spend the next few months working with Emma and Lucas and I to create our production – it’s a company not principals and ensemble.

This is a full on Dancing, Singing and Acting show and we’re looking for people who will fully immerse themselves into it, bringing an exciting energy to our company.

Regarding auditions, in this pack we’ve listed the songs we wish to hear for each part. You’ll also have noticed that I’ve asked everyone who’s auditioning to take part in the ensemble audition: the reason for this is that everyone needs to be able to move and work in their ‘community’, which the show is all about. This time we will include some short pieces of dialogue in the audition which we’ll supply on the audition days, though how you deliver the song is the main part of your audition!

I look forward to seeing you all over the next couple of weeks at the auditions and then in rehearsals.

There are various other small cameo roles in the production, however these will be cast through the process of ensemble auditions or at the start of rehearsals – you may also be offered a cameo role even if you’ve not auditioned for one.

Everyone auditioning for a principle role will also be taking part in the ensemble audition.

Ensemble Auditions

We will be doing a workshop audition for ensemble, which will involve learning a short routine as well as a song (led by Lucas), as the show require a lot of movement and significant harmony singing.

Please come in suitable clothes and ready for a routine.
