Little Women audition information:
ECC Musical Theatre announces auditions for their summer production of Little Women, the Broadway Musical. Auditions will be May 3 and May 4 on Zoom, with invited callbacks May 8 on campus in the Spartan Auditorium.
About the musical:
Little Women, based on Louisa May Alcott’s life, follows the adventures of sisters, Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March. Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but the publishers are not interested – her friend, Professor Bhaer, tells her that she has to do better and write more from herself. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America.
INCLUSIVE-CASTING AUDITION NOTICE - Elgin Community College Musical Theatre is seeking all actors for a diverse and inclusive production of Little Women, including actors of color, actors with disabilities, trans and gender non-conforming actors, and other members of historically and currently marginalized communities that are not well represented or misrepresented onstage in theatre productions. Our production seeks to create a broader and more creative experience for both our company and our community. All are welcome and encouraged to audition.
Please choose a character from Little Women, and find a song (not from Little Women) that is suggestive of the character you are targeting. 32-bars, please find a karaoke accompaniment track for your audition. You will play the karaoke track over zoom while you perform.
If you do not know the show, please choose any musical song that you are comfortable with and provide a karaoke accompaniment.
