Syracuse Summer Theatre to hold auditions

Syracuse Summer Theatre at the Oncenter is pleased to announce auditions for its musical Spring Awakening, which will run July 21-Aug. 6 in the Bevard Studio. Auditions will be held Jan. 4 and 5 from 7:00-9:00 pm at the Bevard Studio. Use the artist's entrance on Madison Street to enter the building. No appointment is necessary. All roles are open.

Those auditioning should prepare 16-32 bars from contemporary musical theatre repertoire or a similar style pop song. An accompanist is provided; please bring legible sheet music. Those auditioning may be asked to vocalize. Dress comfortably as you will be required to move. You may also be asked to read from the script.

Spring Awakening premiered on Broadway in 2006, featuring a folk-rock score by Duncan Sheik with book/lyrics by Steven Sater based on a 19th-century play by German playwright Frank Wedekind. The story follows a preparatory school of teenagers exploring sexuality for the first time. The initial Broadway production garnered eight Tony awards, spurring a critically-acclaimed Broadway revival in 2015.

Syracuse Summer Theatre at the Oncenter inaugurated in 2016 with a re-imagined production of Kander & Ebb's Cabaret. The production, directed by artistic director Garrett Heater, choreographed by Jodi Bova-Mele, with music direction by Bridget Moriarty recently won three Syracuse NewTimes Syracuse Area Live Theatre (SALT) awards. Heater, Bova-Mele, and Moriarty return as the production team for Spring Awakening.
