“SPRING AWAKENING”

VOCAL AUDITIONS

Below is a list of songs that would be appropriate for vocal auditions in early September for the F/14 Theatre Department production of Spring Awakening.  You will want to pick out something and learn it well this summer because you won’t have time to do so after you arrive at school since auditions are the first week.   Also, please arrive at auditions with a real piano score and the part of the song you are going to sing clearly marked for the pianist.        Good luck!

Sue McBerry

 

P.S.:  The music director/conductor will be Stephen Alexander, a fine director in his own right and a music director/pianist/conductor as well, who knows this show and is very experienced in music theatre.  My role will be to coach everyone vocally at the beginning, and only as needed from then on.

 

Enjoy your summer and share this with others you know are interested.
