Altar Boyz Auditions

Synopsis

ALTAR BOYZ is a foot-stomping, rafter-raising, musical comedy about a fictitious Christian boy-band on the last night of their national ‘Raise the Praise’ tour. The Boyz are five all-singing, all-dancing heartthrobs from Ohio: Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan and Abraham. With their tight harmonies and spectacular choreography, the ALTAR BOYZ will delight your audiences. As they perform their signature hits such as ‘Rhythm In Me,’ ‘The Calling,’ and ‘I Believe,’ the Boyz question their loyalty to each other and ask whether or not faith is really holding them together.

Audition Requirements:
All auditionees should prepare two contrasting songs in the style of the show (strictly no musical theatre songs and not songs from the show). At least one should be a song from the 90s/00s.

You may not be required to sing both songs but please be prepared if the production team requests.

Please bring sheet music (in the correct key) in a folder ready for the accompanist. Backing tracks cannot be used for this audition.

Please note it is unlikely you will complete songs so choose an appropriate part of the song which showcases your voice and range. Auditionees may be required to take part in a vocal range exercise.

Bring a clear non-returnable head shot of yourself.

You may prepare a CV of your training and experience. Please provide details of singing, acting and dance training. If you don’t prepare a CV you will be asked to write these details on the audition form on the day of your audition.

Auditionees must be at least 18 years of age at the time of their audition.

The vocal audition should take approximately ten minutes. Please arrive with enough time to adequately prepare yourself.
