Auditions: Holiday Musical Revue

slide

Video auditions are being accepted for a live Holiday Music Revue planned for Dec. 3-5, directed by Jessica Raven.

In order to keep everyone safe and healthy this holiday season we have decided to scale back our holiday production. In place of a full scale show (A Christmas Story), NFCT will present a Holiday Musical Revue!

Rehearsals will begin mid-October on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

A diverse cast of performers will take on multiple roles and musical styles.

Children ages 7-15 (all roles will be cast gender-blind):
Please prepare 16 bars from a Broadway style show that shows off your voice. If you wish to be considered for a featured solo role, please also prepare 16-32 bars from one of the following songs: (please use a backing track (provided) or an accompanist, do not sing a cappella)

“Somewhere Hovering Over Indiana” (from A Christmas Story the Musical) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DR-jkEtbcLM)

“There is a Santa Claus” (kids sing the first verse) (from Elf: The Musical)
