Summer Musical Auditions (Ages 9+)
May 3–6, 2018 | Southlake Campus

If you are an actor, singer, or dancer, we’d like to invite you to audition for our upcoming production of Disney’s Mary Poppins. Performances will be held August 2–12 at The King’s University. 

One of the most popular Disney movies of all time is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect stage musical! Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Mary Poppins delighted Broadway audiences for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

In this beloved story, a fun-loving chimney sweep, Bert, introduces us to London, England, in 1910 and to the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before a mysterious wind blows Mary Poppins into their lives. Her unconventional methods call for a combination of magic and good judgment, through which she teaches the family how to love, care for, and value one another again. 

Auditions are open to ages 9 and up (birthdays June 2, 2009 and before). General audition requirements are as follows:

SINGING: Prepare one song from the selections we provide (emailed to you after you register). Memorization is preferred but not mandatory. We may also teach you a simple vocal exercise to hear your range.

ACTING: You will prepare one side (dialogue excerpt) from the selections we will provide. Memorization is preferred but not mandatory.

DANCING: You will be taught a short dance combination at your audition and will perform the dance in a group.

*If we need to see or hear more from you after your audition, we may ask you to attend callback auditions on Saturday, May 19, and/or Sunday, May 20.

Note: Rehearsals will take place three days a week during the months of June and July. When you register, you will be asked about your availability for each date on our rehearsal and performance calendar. Please download the document at the bottom of this page and clear these dates with all necessary parties (family, school, work, etc.) prior to filling out your audition profile to ensure that your availability commitment is as accurate as possible.
