Ensemble

Age: 15+

The Ensemble plays a crucial role within the Producers, required to fill in the many varying characters that inhabit almost every scene. From theatregoers and Showgirls to old women and Stormtroopers. The role of the ensemble will be extensive and exciting. 

Being part of the ensemble of the Producers will require energy, stamina and the ability to change between a myriad of characters throughout the show.

Vocally, the production team is looking for the 1930’s/40’s/50’s Hollywood sound. Not the 90’s musical theatre. Chorus will need to be able to hold a harmony part up to 5-part division each for both women and men.

The audition panel will be looking for people who can bring great movement and character, as well as comedy to their performances.   

Requirements: High dance ability (tap desirable). Some comedic acting skills are also highly desirable.
