  • The Marvelous Wonderettes AUDITIONS

    October 27, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 10:30 am
    Reformed Dutch Church, 88 NY-9H, Claverack, NY 12513, USA

    We are seeking talented women who can play the ages of 18 – 28 who are incredibly strong singers with strong comedic ability who can handle difficult 4 part harmonies. The show requires a big range and strong high pop rock belt. There are four roles in the show.
    Auditions will be held Saturday, October 27 at 10:30 AM at the Reformed Dutch Church, 88 Route 9H, Claverack, NY. Callbacks will immediately follow.
    “The Marvelous Wonderettes” is a cotton-candy colored, non-stop pop musical that takes the audience to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet the Wonderettes, 4 girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts! As we learn about their lives and loves, we are treated to the girls singing classic hits from the ‘50s including “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “Stupid Cupid,” and “Lipstick on Your Collar.” In act two, the Wonderettes reunite to take the stage and perform at their ten-year reunion in 1968. We learn about the highs and lows the girls have experienced in the past decade and are charmed to find that no matter what life throws their way, they will conquer it together. Featuring over 30 classic ’50s and ’60s hits, "The Marvelous Wonderettes" will keep you smiling in this must-take musical trip down memory lane!
    Those auditioning should prepare a pop song from these decades; songs from the show are encouraged. Listen to Connie Francis, Doris Day, The Chordettes, & The McGuire Sisters for Act I styles; listen to Dusty Springfield, Lesley Gore, The Shangri-Las, & Betty Everett for Act II styles. Bring an MP3 accompaniment-only track. Please, no acapella auditions. You may be required to learn a short dance/movement combination, so please come prepared to move; there may also be cold reading from the script.
    Performance dates are February 22, 23, 24, 2019 in Hudson, NY.
    Below are the character descriptions:
    BETTY JEAN (Female, Adult [to play 18 and 28]): Betty Jean is the self-anointed clown of the group, always vying for attention from her best friend Cindy Lou. Cindy Lou steals Betty Jean’s boyfriend away, causing a lot of the friction at the prom; she holds this grudge against Cindy Lou, until they make up at the 10-year reunion. (Alto with strong low range)
    CINDY LOU (Female, Adult [to play 18 and 28]): Cindy Lou is the "bad girl" of the group. It seems that things always go her way, making Betty Jean crazy. She makes the biggest change between Acts I and II, having learned the lessons of true love and loss. (Mezzo Soprano with belt; sings melody line on most songs)
    MISSY (Female, Adult [to play 18 and 28]): Always the over-achiever of the group, Missy is the one to cover for mistakes and is always ready to jump in and save the day. Head of the prom decorations committee, and absolutely smitten with her music teacher. She has been best friends with Suzy since elementary school. (Soprano with wide range and very high vocals; also needs ability to belt/mix)
    SUZY (Female, Adult [to play 18 and 28]): Gum-chewing Suzy is happy-go-lucky, a little giddy, and a little silly. She finds great pleasure in everything she does; the sillier it is, the more fun she finds it. Her best friend is Missy.
