Auditions for OFC's Spring Intensive for Pre-Professional Performers:
Rehearsals April 24-May 29, 2022; Auditions held in January before registering. This production is for Pre-Professional Performers for our Spring Intensive of Spring Awakening. Participants should be ages 16 & up.
Unlike other OFC productions, participants must audition before registering for the program. Not everyone who auditions will be cast in the production. There will be a tuition fee ($350) for those who are cast.
Auditions are on Sunday, January 30 in the morning and afternoon. Auditions are held by appointment only by signing up below (pick a time slot). Please prepare a one-minute cut from any contemporary musical theatre song in the style of the show. As an accompanist will not be provided, please bring an accompaniment audio track (from YouTube is fine) on your phone or other device.
A small fee of $25 will be charged when choosing an audition slot. If you are cast in the production, the fee will be applied towards the $350 tuition. If you are not cast in the production, the fee will be refunded to you. If you cancel your audition slot or do not show up for auditions, the $25 will not be refunded and not applied to other programs.
Auditioners will have the chance to notate roles they are interested in playing and roles they would prefer not to play on their audition forms.

Presented in partnership with the Rochester Willow Domestic Violence Center and Roc.SRJ

***This production will contain absolutely no nudity. Similar to OFC's fall production of "Bare: A Pop Opera," themes including abuse from peers and parental figures, depression, suicide, homosexuality, among others will be discussed and handled with care and respect to ensure the safety of all involved. Content will be workshopped at a level appropriate for those who are cast in the production. OFC has partnered with Rochester Willow Domestic Violence Center who will join in the rehearsal process to safely explore the seriousness of abuse. OFC has also partnered with members from Roc.SRJ, a task force made up of local educators and activists who work in sexual and reproductive justice, to open safe conversations and offer resources for cast and audience members looking for further discussion.***
Synopsis: A landmark musical, Spring Awakening is an electrifying fusion of morality, sexuality and rock & roll. Based on Frank Wedekind’s groundbreaking and controversial play (once banned in Germany), Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik’s brilliant rock score and searingly emotional book take the story of coming-of-age, youth revolt, and self-discovery into a new century. It is Germany in 1891, teens are curious and adults are rigid and restrictive. Impulsive and reckless Melchior meets naive Wendla. They soon fall into each others’ arms, while anxious Moritz struggles to live up society’s expectations for him. Since they can’t talk to the grown-ups, they learn only from one another. The young men and women discover their themselves along the way.
Please note: This show contains serious and mature material. We encourage auditioners and applicable guardians to research the show’s full material prior to auditions. Questions contact Hunter, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: The two adult characters will be played by adult professionals and are already cast.

Tuition: No cost!
Student Cabaret Night was a huge hit with four performances last year, we are now kicking off 2022 with a reimagined concept. There is no cost to participate, however there will be a cost for tickets for parents, friends, and family to attend the performance. Students will perform solos, duets, and more in the cabaret, selections of what will be performed will be sent out right after auditions, with time to prep prior to rehearsals beginning.
We are looking for students who are self-motivated and have performed in the past and are "bound for Broadway!" We encourage all ages to apply (as young as 7 to 18). Please note we can only accept a limited number of students, not all who audition will be cast in the cabaret. For auditions, please come with a song selection prepared, roughly 1 minute (32 bars) in length. We will not have an accompanist, so you should make sure to have a backing track that can accompany you. We will provide a bluetooth speaker for you to play the track on. Your selection should be something you could envision singing in the show, although the director may wind up choosing a different song selection for you.
