Our auditions are always informal and friendly. We are always keen to welcome new faces as well as returning SiK members.
Please arrive promptly at the start time. You may be finished before the end time, but would like everyone to arrive together at the advertised start time.
1. We will read from the script as a group, switching characters to find roles that suit
2. You will be asked to sing a prepared song and a song from the show (see below). Please bring a prepared song (and a backing track on CD or flash drive) if you are interested in a lead/supporting role. If you are only interested in chorus work then you will only be asked to sing as part of a group in the audition.
3. We will do a simple dance routine as a group to see how well you can pick up choreography. (Don’t worry about this – it will be easy!)

About The Show:
‘Seussical’ is based on the works of Dr. Seuss and weaves together his most famous tales and characters from at least fifteen of his books. The show follows the adventures of Horton, an elephant who one day hears voices coming from a speck of dust. He soon discovers that within this tiny speck exists the smallest planet in the universe! on this tiny planet live a tiny raceof creatures known as Whos. Although ridiculed by the other animals in the Jungle of Nool for believing insomething he cannot see, Horton stubbornly persists in his belief that the Whos exist. Traveling everywhere from the Jungle of Nool to McEligott’s Pool, some of the characters fall in love, some have desperate adventures and some even save the world.
