Video Auditions Announced for MCBRIDE’S CALL at Inspiring Arts Productions

IAP_logoWe are specifically seeking teens and adults who are strong choral singers, as well as anyone with Irish dance experience. Some of our recording cast from last summer will be returning, ​but we will be auditioning for double cast and vacated roles, as well as many ensemble parts.

We are not holding open auditions for children under 14 for this production.

Initial auditions will be by video submission, DUE APRIL 30, 2021.

For character breakdown and show synopsis, as well as additional information about this brand new musical,
​please visit the MCBRIDE’S CALL website.

Note: Inspiring Arts is senstive to the fluctuating COVID circumstances, and specific production plans could still change based on venue and state guidelines.

How to Audition

  1. Prepare your audition ​

    SINGING
    Please sing two minutes of a Broadway-style song that best showcases your voice. You may sing acapella or with a track, but please make sure your voice can be heard easily above the track.

    MONOLOGUE 
    If you are interested in a speaking role, please prepare a monologue from the monologue sheet (below). Please try with your best British or Irish accent.

  2. Record your audition ​
    We need a recording from your phone of you from the waist up, on a basically neutral background. We would like enough light to see you and low background noise so that we can hear you clearly. Upload your song and monologue to Youtube. Mark the videos as “Not intended for kids,” and then save the video as UNLISTED. You will paste the Youtube link into your audition form (below).

  3. Fill out and submit our audition form.
    The link below will open a new webpage with our audition form. Please note all conflicts and give us as much information as you can. Use the Note field to further explain. Significant conflicts will affect casting decisions, and NO conflicts will be accepted during tech weeks. ​When you’re finish… hit submit and you’re done!
