The Addams Family production is officially happening!!!

Auditions for The Addams Family will be on Wednesday, May 5th from 6:00-8:30 and Friday, May 7th from 6:30-8:30 at East Granby Farms. (79 N Main St East Granby, CT) Anyone who is auditioning will need to sign up for a 10-minute time slot on the signup.com linked below. We will follow state guidelines throughout the entire process for the show, including auditions, so please wear a mask and practice social distancing.

 

Audition Sign-up link: https://signup.com/go/WZFHhMK

 

Please prepare a 30-second audition song which you can sing either a cappella or with an instrumental track playing from your phone. You may sing a song from the show if you would like. If possible, please arrive two minutes prior to your audition time slot in order to ensure a smooth transition between auditioners. You will be asked to read a scene at auditions which we will provide for you during your time slot.

 

All performers must be in 2nd-12th grade in order to participate. The tuition is $500 with $250 due at auditions and the other $250 due at the read-through, which will be held in May. Any child under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian present at auditions to sign the paperwork.  

 

In addition to vocal auditions, there will be a dance call held via Zoom on Saturday, May 8th at 5:30. All auditioners are invited to attend this dance call, specifically if they would like to be considered for a lead or featured dancer. Jenna will email the dance call video the week of auditions to the email addresses used in the signup link.  During the dance call, Jenna will quickly go over the dance and then will create break-out rooms to perform it. (again this is not mandatory)

 

Due to COVID restrictions, we may need to limit the number of participants to keep the number of kids within allowable limits. Casting will be talent-based and you will be notified of casting by Wednesday, May 12th. If your child is not cast, you will receive your $250 deposit back. 

 

In-person rehearsals will start on Monday, July 5th and will run Monday through Thursday from 8:30-2:00.  The Addams Family show dates are July 29th-31st. Tech Week will be from 4:00-9:00 on July 26th, 27th and 28th.  Because space is limited, we ask that you make sure you will be available for all of Tech Week and performances. We will be holding a number of choreography rehearsals once or twice a week during the evening in June; not everyone will be called to these rehearsals.

 

If you have any questions, please reach out to us at valleystudenttheatre@gmail.com.

 

Thank you!
