General Audition for Kit the Musical
Sat, May 6, 2017, 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM BST
Come along and take part in bringing a brand new original musical to life. "Kit the Musical" is based on the life and mysterious death of famed Elizabethan dramatist, Christopher Marlowe.
We are looking for people who are good singers AND actors.
The show has 4 male roles, and 2 female roles. There are 3 other roles that make up the rest of the ensemble. Apart from two male leads (Kit and Bill), the rest of the cast will be alternating roles.
Actors are playing characters aged between 20 to 50.
Contemporary voices are good (the ability to belt is a plus).
Please submit an electronic copy of your CV/bio and headshot.
Musical styles in the show range from R&B, rap, disco to big-band numbers.
The selected actors will showcase six scenes/songs from the show at a special preview performance during the Canterbury Arts Conference on July 19. PLEASE make sure you can be in Canterbury on this date before you audition.
Please prepare a song:
In any of the following genres: Pop, R&B, contemporary musical theatre
No longer than 2 minutes in length (or one verse and chorus)

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Warnborough College is opposite Wilkinsons and the Canterbury bus station on Lower Bridge Street. It's a minute's walk from these. You can park at various Council car parks around (or park for free for 1.5 hours at Waitrose).
What can I bring into the event?
You can bring along a backing track on CD or USB stick (MP3 format only), and there is a piano if you wish to bring an accompanist (or if you wish to play). Otherwise, sing a cappella.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
More details (e.g. phone number) will be provided once you have signed up.
