The SpongeBob Musical

Saturday, January 22, 2022
9:00 am-12:30 pm

Directed by Chelsea Collier

 

We are looking to cast 20 – 25 performers who can sing and/or dance in a contemporary pop style. We are interested in hearing what you would bring to the role, please prep your songs and present sides in a voice suited to your personal take on the character, not an impression of the cartoon.

If you are interested in dancing only, please indicate so on your audition sign-up. You do not need to sign up for a vocal/acting audition.

How to Sign Up

Please visit our sign-up page here. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040A4BADAB23A75-thespongebob

There are two sign-up options, a dance audition and a vocal/acting audition. If you are interested in auditioning for any named characters or singing ensemble – please sign up for one of each (make sure the times don’t overlap!) If you are interested in dancing only, please select a dance audition time and indicate you wish to audition as a dancer only, during the sign-up process.

What to Prepare

Dance Audition: Please wear comfy clothing that you can move freely in.

Vocal/Acting Audition: Please prepare 1 minute of a pop-style piece (roughly 32 bars) from any source – musical theatre or otherwise. Sides from the script will be available on this page for preview/download and provided at the time of your audition. Please select a side for the character you wish to audition for, but you may also be asked to read for a different character in groupings with others who are in your same audition slot.

Please Note: All sheet music should have 3 clearly visible staves: one vocal line, and two staves for the piano accompaniment. Photocopies should be legible and handed to the audition accompanist in a 3-ring binder. If you forgot a 3-ring binder, one will be provided at the audition sign-in table. Cuts and start/end points should be clearly indicated, preferably in ink of a contrasting color to the score. No loose-leaf pages or bound scores, please. No acapella auditions will be permitted, as this musical’s score requires that all actors be able to sing with live accompaniment.

Please read through the audition sides in advance of your audition. The director will ask you to read in pairs/groups during the audition. You do not need to print off copies as there will be copies provided at the audition.

Sides
Act 1, Scene 2 The Krusty Krab
Act 1, Scene 12, Bikini Bottom, SpongeBob and Patrick fight
Act 1, Scene 12, Bikini Bottom
Act 2, Scene 3, Bikini Bottom, Duty Calls

Additional Information

Please arrive 10 – 15 minutes before your audition to allow for time to fill out paperwork and to have a photo taken (shared with the directors only.) You can help speed up the process by filling out paperwork ahead of time. Forms available below. Please read the Parkland Theatre Letter of Agreement, you are required to sign that you have read and understand this prior to being considered for a role in any Parkland Theatre production.
