READERS THEATRE -Mainstage

Improve skills, make friends and build confidence.

We are proud to announce a 4 show, 12-week program (Sound of Music, Cabaret, Chicago and A Chorus line) that will bring us together in fun. You don’t have to have any experience to join the ensemble, nor will you have to audition. The program is outlined below:

  1. Individuals wanting to participate without being cast in a lead role/or and just want to sing through the ensemble numbers, need not audition but merely pay the $10 participation fee. (This also includes a BMT membership for the upcoming season)

  2. Individuals wishing to be cast as a lead, are required to audition with 1 song performed by the character they wish to be cast in. If you wish to play more than one part in a show, please choose your favourite. Casting will be dependent upon # of participants. (please also send secondary/third choices in the email)

  3. The structure of the program is as follows:

  4. Each show will be “read thru” 3 times in rotation.

    1. 1st read through will involve all cast reading through the show as cast.

      1. At the end of the read thru, anyone in the cast will have the opportunity to perform any number from the selected musical, for their peers in a masterclass format, with feedback from the rest of the cast. This creates a safe space to “try out” songs you may have always wanted to sing in a non-threatening environment.

    2. 2nd read through will be in a masterclass format for the cast with feedback by the directorial panel. (This would be closer to the actual rehearsal process)

    3. 3rd read through would be a final “performance like” version where “dressing the part” is encouraged.       

  5. The program fee is $10, which allows members to participate in as many productions as they so choose.

  6. Each show will be “read thru” 3 times.

  7. Open to adults except for Sound of Music, which will also be open to Youth.

  8. Where songs are duets or small ensemble, efforts will be made to create a pre-recorded video of the number edited together for the final performance.

  9. Participants must have a playback device to perform from their computer separate from their Zoom connection

  10. Backing tracks will be provided as well as links to the score for you to use

  11. Non singing roles will be available to all ensemble members.

  12. Please send auditions to auditions@bramptonmusictheatre.com

 

Auditions are open until the 7th of June. Participants must register on BMT’s website and pay the $10 fee upfront. Casting will take place the week of the 7th and all participants will be notified via email the same week.

The program begins June 14th and runs Monday evenings from 7-10/10:30 pm on Zoom.
