All Shook Up Auditions

Posted on by Layne Hillesland Posted in Around Town, Chicago Audition, Dance, Music, Theatre | Leave a comment

Are you all shook up about Wilmette Center for the Arts‘s spring production, All Shook Up? So are we!

If you’re looking to get in on some of the fun, you can audition for this production, which is directed by Milman Schmidt.

General auditions will be Sunday, December 7 from 1:30 – 5 PM. Callbacks will be on Tuesday, December 9 from 6:30 – 10 PM.

For your audition, prepare 16-32 measures (or up to one minute) of a song — whichever one best displays your vocal talent! Also, be ready to boogy (a.k.a. dance). Wear your comfortable dancing shoes when you arrive for the audition; you can change afterwards for the singing audition if you wish.

This production has a variety of characters — so actors of all ages are invited to audition!

Take a look at all the characters: 

Natalie Haller / Ed:  A tom-boy mechanic; Falls in love with Chad. Vocal Range: Alto / E#3 to F4

Chad: Motorcycle driving new-comer in town; a roustabout. Vocal Range: Baritone / E#3 to A5

Jim Haller: Natalie’s lonely widowed father; Vocal Range: Baritone/ Bb3 – F#4

Sylvia: No-nonsense owner of the Honky-Tonk on the wrong side of the tracks; Vocal Range: Alto with a Belt / E3 – F4

Lorraine:  Sylvia’s teenage daughter, in a secret relationship with the Mayor’s son; Vocal Range: Alto with a Belt / C4 to Eb5

Dennis: A young, awkward, aspiring dentist.  Natalie’s best friend who is also secretly in love with her; Vocal Range: Tenor / A3 to Bb5

Miss Sandra: The beautiful and intellectual museum curator; Vocal Range: Alto / E3 to F4

Mayor Matilda Hyde: The town’s very conservative mayor who has banned music and dancing. Vocal Range: Mezzo / Bb3 to C6

Dean Hyde: The Mayor’s teenage son who is about to be sent back to Military boarding school; in a secret relationship with Lorraine; Vocal Range: Tenor / D4 to Bb5

Sheriff Earl: The law in town; A man of not many words; Vocal Range: Baritone / B3 to F#5

Vocal Backup Trio / “Pips”:  Similar to the trio of street urchins in Little Shop of Horrors — this trio requires STRONG singers who can handle difficult harmonies.  These roles will not have a large amount of lines but will have a significant amount of music and stage time.

Ensemble: Strong singers and dancers of all ages and types.

If you are interested in scheduling an audition, email your name and contact info to auditions@wilpark.org.

Rehearsals will begin the week of January 12.
