AUDITIONS: THE WEDDING SINGER
Based on the hit Adam Sandler movie, The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room.
It's 1985, and once a rock star wannabe, Robbie Hart, is now New Jersey's favorite wedding singer. He's the life of the party until his own fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie suddenly starts making every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. But Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and, unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.
The Wedding Singer features a wacky ensemble with a dizzying array of fun, featured roles for actors who sing and dancers who act.
Auditions will be held on both:

All auditions, and any necessary callbacks, will be held at the Morgan-Wixson Theatre.
Street parking available.
Venice Family Clinic’s parking lot is available on weekends and on weekdays after 6 p.m. Do not park at our neighbors AAMCO/Viking Motors or SGI or you will be towed.
For the vocal audition, please prepare two 16-32 bar musical theater selections, at least one of which needs to be in the style of the show (i.e. 80’s pop.)
Please bring sheet music in the correct key with cuts clearly marked; an accompanist will be provided.
Auditionees may be asked to only sing one selection based on time constraints.
For this show, all singers must be comfortable singing in 80’s pop styles.
Dance audition will take place on the day of callbacks. A combination will be taught.

In reference to the character descriptions that follow—most characters we encounter currently are on the binary and are written with he/him or she/her pronouns and you will see that in the following descriptions. But however limiting the descriptions are, our casting seeks to be as inclusive as possible and we invite gender non-conforming, gender fluid, transgender and non-binary actors to submit for the roles they most identify with.
We will also list race/ethnicity when specific to the character but are otherwise seeking all races and ethnicities. In addition, we will list disability when specific to a character, but are otherwise seeking actors with disabilities as well as non-disabled actors for all roles. Please let us know if you have any questions, concerns, or if there are any accommodations we can provide.
We are actively committed to casting an inclusive show that reflects the community.
This is a high energy show with many upbeat numbers.
Accordingly, all cast will be expected to perform some degree of movement and dance.
Non-Equity, there is no pay.
