Last Saturday we held our auditions for subs and possible swing roles for our show at the Clarion. Those auditioning had to prepare 2 Sinatra songs (1 up-tempo and 1 ballad) and perform them in the theater in front of everyone else auditioning (WAY more fun than singing to a couple of people sitting behind a table). Fortunately, Sinatra recorded over 1700 songs throughout his career, so they had a LOT of great music to choose from! And even though we had over 60 people audition, I don’t think we heard the same song more than twice…well, maybe three times. :)
It was tough, but we narrowed it down to about 18 people that we invited to a call-back this past Thursday (see photo above). Wow, some really great talent! All I have to say is, I am SOOO glad that the CAST doesn’t have to make the final decisions about who to choose, because it’s gonna be tough. Ray Wolf, I don’t envy your job!!! Good luck to all those who auditioned…we should hear a final decision in a few days!
