Auditions Announced for THE BOOK OF MONSTERS at InBocca Performance

IBP_logoAnnouncing auditions for InBocca Performance’s summer production, THE BOOK OF MONSTERS!

This production is unlike anything anyone is offering in the Greater Cincinnati Area for kids in theatre this summer! Working with InBocca, your child will create an original devised theatrical production containing original music, dance, and writing. This means that our kids write their theatre themselves over the course of a month–and this isn’t ‘children’s theatre,’ but amazing, bleeding edge theatre made by kids but polished and presented to all audiences.

This summer, we are exploring the monster that lives under the bed, in the closet, beneath the dark waves, in our most frightening dreams, and in our oldest folk tales. Venture up to the attic, open the creaking pages of a book, and read the stories you find there…if you dare.

“She who fights with monsters should see to it that, in the process, she does not in turn become a monster herself.”

When: May 16th, 2021

Time: 1pm-4pm. Cold readings and movement at 1pm, Dance auditions beginning at 2pm. Dance is optional.

Where: TBA (updates will be on the FB event)

Prepare: Nothing. Actors will be asked to do cold readings and movement. Please come dressed for movement. Dancers please come ready to dance.

Who is eligible: Incoming grade 3-outgoing grade 12; All schools, races, sexualities, identities. All are welcome.

Show Times: Rehearsals begin July 5th (M-F, 9am-2pm), with shows July 29th-Aug. 1st.

PLEASE NOTE: We have not yet determined if this show will have a live audience due to Covid-protocols. It is our hope to do so, however, the performance space if very, very small and we wish to accommodate all. Updates to come.

Price: Camp costs $200/child for the month. That being said, we want all kids to be able to enjoy theatre. If, for some reason, this price is not available to you, please contact us privately.

Questions can be sent to Caroline Stine: info@inboccaperformance.com

The Show:
Meredith Willson’s six-time, Tony Award-winning musical comedy follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band that he vows to organize – this, despite the fact that he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, the librarian.

TO AUDITION FOR THE CAST

How to Prepare:

  • Sign up for an audition slot on the Encore Website (coming soon!)
  • Prepare a 1 minute cut of a classic musical theatre song that best shows your vocal range.

  • You will need to bring sheet music or a vocal track to sing to at your audition. Sheet music should be double-sided and hole punched in a binder. The track can be a recording or a karaoke track from youtube/Spotify/etc.
  • Note: Tracks should NOT have any background vocals.
  • The dance combo will be posted here and on our website for you to study before auditions. It does not need to be memorized beforehand, but you should plan on being familiar with the combination, as the dance portion will be shorter than in the past.

What to Expect on Audition Day:

  • Auditions and Callbacks (if needed) will take place at Ridgeway Elementary [267 Wasserman Rd, Hamilton, OH 45013].
  • Plan on arriving 15 minutes early to your time slot to fill out any paperwork, and staying for about 1 hour.
