Auditions for “My Favorite Christmas”

August 26th 12 – 5pm by audition slot only

About: My Favorite Christmas will be HART’s 2023 Christmas show. It will be a collaborative project with HART’s Artistic Director and Director of the show, Candice Dickinson. This show will be a cabaret style performance full of beautiful Christmas music, stories, and dance. You will work with Candice to craft a story (true or not-so-true) about your favorite Christmas that will then be paired with a holiday song. We are interested in a variety of stories and experiences and want to make this an exceptional Christmas performance for both our artists and patrons. You may be asked to sing a second solo or duet and there will be 2-3 group numbers for the show.

To Audition: 
Please prepare a 16 to 32 bar cut of a song of your choice. Holiday songs are preferred but it can also just be a song that shows your range. An accompanist will be at the auditions so please prepare your sheet music accordingly

Please also prepare a short story of your favorite Christmas. No more than 2 minutes, under 1 minute is preferred. You can have it memorized, improvise it, or read off of a piece of paper. This is just so that we can get a feel for your storytelling capabilities and what experience you may be willing to share for the show.

Who’s involved: 
Candice Dickinson – Director
Kelly Jackson – Musical Director and Pianist for performances and audition accompanist
Nichole Sumpter – Stage Manager

Commitment: Rehearsals will start after November 5th. Like most cabarets I have directed, I plan to call you as little as possible and will expect you to work on your pieces on your own. We will have 2 group rehearsals for group numbers and learning music, you will have 2 individual coachings with Candice, and then we will have all called rehearsals the week of November 28th and tech Dec 4th-6th.

Performances: December 8th, 9th, 15th, and 16th at 7:30pm (6:30 call)
December 10th and 17th at 2pm (1pm call)
