Auditions Announced for THE MUSIC MAN at Bart’s Bards

BB_logoBart’s Bards is excited to announce our return to the stage June 9-12, 2022 with our production of the classic musical, Meredith Willson’s THE  MUSIC MAN, directed by Fred Hunt.

Auditions for our production will be held on February 5, from noon to 4:00pm, and on February 8, from 7:00 to 9:00pm.

This year’s auditions will once again take place at John Paul II Catholic School (9375 Winton Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45231). Please enter through the main entrance to the school and follow the stairs down to the left to our audition area.

You may choose a 15-minute audition slot using our signup genius page at the following link:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050A48A8AF28A0F49-2022. Once all slots are filled, we will be accepting walk-ins. However, as a walk-in the wait time may be a bit longer as we attempt to fit you in with our scheduled auditioners.

Note: the format for auditions will include a singing portion (16-32 measures of a Broadway-style show tune); a read-through with other actors; and a dance portion. A speaker will be available to be used with your cell phone for accompaniment. The dance auditions will take place at the end of three consecutive 15-minute audition slots.

Audition forms can be found here: https://bartsbards.org/current-productions/. Forms will also be available at auditions. However, we would prefer you fill out and sign the forms ahead of time to keep things moving during auditions. Thanks!

You will also find at the above link our current COVID-19 health and safety policy. Please read through this policy as you will be asked to agree to follow this as a member of our theatre family. As conditions in the broader community change this policy is subject to change. We will be sure to update all our group members as these changes are made.
