Avenue Q Auditions are around the Corner!

Come audition for our spring production of the musical, Avenue Q!

Where: The PepsiCo Theatre

When: Sunday, February 1st @ 2 pm- 6 pm

What:

Warm-Up

  • There will be a warm-up for all auditioning to get everyone ready to go.
  • This will probably include some movement and some vocal exercises.

32 Bars

  • You are asked to prepare a 32-bar cut of a song to perform during your audition.
  • The song should be something that best shows off your vocal range and your projection abilities.
  • It can be in the same style of music as Avenue Q, or you can prepare a song from the show if you want.
  • Be prepared to take direction from the Musical Director during your audition!

Sides

  • You may be asked to read some sides from the show (an excerpt of a scene).
  • If asked, you will receive these at auditions, so be ready to prepare them during the audition process.

* It would be beneficial to familiarize yourself with Sesame Street puppet voices and characters because you may be asked to replicate one by the production team during auditions or callbacks.

TIPS:

  • Wear something that you feel comfortable in!
  • Make sure you wear the same outfit to callbacks if you are called back – this will make it easier for everyone in the casting room to remember you and the work you’ve done.
  • Always be ready to take direction and adjust!
  • If you are stopped during a scene or a song, or if you are not called back – don’t read into it! They may have just seen what they needed to see.
  • Be yourself and be confident! Those people sitting behind the casting table are rooting for you and want you to do your best.

Break legs everyone!!!

‘The Shape of Things’ takes center stage at Fairfield University

Theatre Fairfield, Fairfield University’s resident production company, with the generous support of the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation, presents Neil LaBute’s provocative and challenging play “The Shape of Things.” Performances take place Friday, Jan. 23 through Sunday, Jan. 25, at the PepsiCo Theatre, located on the Fairfield University campus. Performance times are 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 23 and Saturday, Jan. 24, and 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 24 and Sunday, Jan. 25. Tickets are $7 general admission and $5 for students.

“The Shape of Things” is a cutting edge piece of theatre that challenges our idea of what constitutes art, questions where you draw the line between art and life, and sheds light on moral and sexual issues faced by young people in college and graduate school. The play centers around two characters, Adam, a dedicated and insecure undergrad, and Evelyn, a dangerously passionate artist seeking truth and knowledge whatever the cost. Just how often do we allow ourselves to be shaped and molded by our lovers? Or by our friends, peers, and role models? This play asks these questions and demands an answer.

Theatre Fairfield is Fairfield University’s resident production company. The theatre program at Fairfield offers students a liberal arts education infused with the theoretical and everyday aspects of the theatre profession. Theatre Fairfield produces three or more productions every year and serves as a platform for community engagement as well a positive and professional learning environment. The next production of the season is “Avenue Q” with music and lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, book by Jeff Whitty, and based on the original concept by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx.

Tickets are $7 for general admission, $6 for senior citizens and University staff and $5 for students. All tickets are sold in the Quick Center Box Office, or you may order by phone at 203-254-4010 or 1-877-ARTS-396. Tickets may also be purchased online at quickcenter.com.
