    Auditions: Once Upon a Mattress - Grades 9-12


    Hello!

    I am so glad you are auditioning for our upcoming production of Getting to Know… Once Upon a Mattress! We are so excited to have you! 

    My name is Amanda Britt and I will be directing OUAM. Below are some helpful tidbits about music and dancing during our auditions! 

    Please prepare a 30 second audition from one of the following songs:

    Men: 

    1. The Minstrel, The Jester, and I*

    2. Yesterday I Loved You

    3. Song of Love

    Women:

    1. Shy

    2. Sensitivity or Quiet

    3. Yesterday I Loved You

    4. The Minstrel, The Jester, and I

    *the role of the King is mute. We are looking for someone who is good at getting the point across without speaking. Think charades or mime but acting!*

    Here is a link to a youtube playlist that has the music to listen to: 

    https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLaHwSBnw447pR-LcV0OlkWB7vcuuFnHxb

    (*we are doing the 'Getting to Know' version of OUAM. This means we are doing a slightly altered version fit for high school. Some songs in this playlist will not be in our version. You can google Getting to Know Once Upon a Mattress to find a list of music if you are interested.)

    There is no need to bring any tracks or sheet music because the audition will be A CAPPELLA! Please make sure to act out each character as well. We are looking for someone who understands the character and why they are singing what they are singing. 

    Please dress comfy because there will be a dance audition as well!

    We will also be reading some scenes from the show as well. These are called cold-reads. Cold-reads are scenes/monologues handed out at an audition that you have never looked at before and do not have memorized. You will have a few seconds to look over and read through it before you come on-stage and act out whatever you are handed. It doesn't have to be memorized… just act it!

    If you have any questions please feel free to ask! We cannot wait to meet you!

    Thank you,

    Amanda Britt

    Director.

    Founded in 1979, The Pitchforks are the oldest a cappella group at Duke University. They perform on campus and across the country throughout the year, appearing in venues ranging from dorm common rooms to professional sports arenas. They have sung the national anthem at Chicago Bulls and Duke Basketball games, showcased themselves before the Queen of Jordan, and even opened for Ben Folds in 2009 and The Band Perry in 2015. In 2014, the ‘Forks crossed the Atlantic to tour with some of Britain’s best collegiate singers. Back at Duke, the Parents’ Weekend Fall Classic and the Gothic Christmas concert are two of the group’s favorite traditions.

    The female version of "The Odd Couple." Synopsis: The play takes place in New York City in 1985. Unger and Madison are at it again--Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is, in Neil Simon's contemporary comic classic: the female version of 'The Odd Couple.' Instead of the poker party that begins the original version, Ms. Madison has invited the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit. The Pidgeon sisters have been replaced by the two Costazuela brothers--but the hilarity remains the same.

    Directed by Frank Thompson III
