Indy theater holds auditions

Footlite Musicals, a volunteer theater group in Indianapolis, is holding open auditions for its next production, “Bright Star.”

Auditions will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 19 and Nov. 20 at Footlite Musicals in the Hedback Theatre, 1847 North Alabama St., Indianapolis. People only need to attend one audition date. Callbacks will take place on Nov. 21.

Organizers are seeking a cast of performers that is racially, ethnically, and physically diverse as well as inclusive of all gender identities, sexual orientations and abilities. Must be 18 or older.

Please come prepared to sing 16-32 bars from a song that shows off your vocal talent, with sheet music in the appropriate key. An accompanist will be provided. A cappella singing and recorded accompaniments will not be permitted.

Please also be prepared to stick around after singing. Once everyone has sung, our choreographer will teach the dance portion of the audition and you will perform it for the production team. We recommend bringing a change of clothes to dance in comfortably.

The COVID-19 vaccine is required by Footlite Musicals to participate in this production. Please be prepared to provide proof of vaccination at auditions.

Rehearsals are scheduled to begin in January 2024. Production dates are March 1-3, 7-10, and 14-17, 2024. There are no conflicts allowed from February 24 through the end of the run, and once cast, performers will not be allowed to add extra conflicts.
