You are welcome to share this packet of links with your networks, as not everyone has signed up on the SIGN UP GENIUS:

Stay safe!



Previous announcement – Now that there are confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the area, we have made the decision to take our PIRATES OF PENZANCE auditions virtual, at least for this first go.

I will be reaching out individually to anyone signed up through our Sign Up Genius page via email in the next 24 hours with what script clips we would like you to include in your video, in addition to vocal exercises to show range and at least 32 bars of a song selection that demonstrates your ability. There will also be a form you can submit electronically.

Please continue to spread the word to your networks.

Thanks for your patience.

We are also accepting VIDEO AUDITIONS, if you are uncomfortable coming to the audition. If you are interested in this option, please email info@voicesofindiana.org, and I will send requirements. A video shot on a cell phone is acceptable.

Voices of Broadway is excited to announce auditions for their summer 2020 musical, THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE. Please note: this VOB production is recommended for participants in high school (age 14) and up due to the complexity of the music. Cast will be select – not all that audition will be invited to participate.

Due to generous underwriting of this year’s production, Voices of Indiana is pleased to announce that the participation fee for the 2020 Voices of Broadway production of THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE will be reduced from $100 to $35. As always, need based scholarships will be available where appropriate.

Voices of Broadway is an educational program, offering a fully-staged theatrical experience, with instruction for both what goes on onstage and backstage. There is a $35 fee to participate. Cast members will receive a show t-shirt (included in the fee). Limited tuition assistance and scholarships are available. $25 minimum deposit as a script fee upon acceptance of role.

Auditions will be at a location TBA.

  • MARCH 15: 2:30-6 PM Auditions
  • MARCH 17: 6:30-8 PM Auditions

Directed by Fred Tacon.

For your audition, please prepare a song or excerpt from an operetta or musical theater show that best represents your singing voice. Please bring sheet music for the accompanist. Please note: do not expect to sing a cappella or with pre-recorded music.
