About the Auditions

Preliminary auditions will consist of performing a short contemporary monologue as well as a short vocal audition (see Vocal Audition Requirements below).

Callbacks will consist of a dance/movement audition (see Dance Audition Requirements below), a vocal audition in which actors will sing specific songs from the show with limited preparation time, and reading from some scenes.

(Actors may either submit a pre-recording of their monologue and vocal audition or perform it live online at the Friday night Zoom auditions.) 

Actors that were in the cast of The Wedding Singer Spring 2020 do not need to attend preliminary auditions and can go straight to callbacks! Complete the audition registration form and mention that you were in the cast in your audition request email.

 

Show Description

Inspired from the film, the romantic comedy has 8 major roles, numerous featured roles, and lots of dance rock numbers for the ensemble!

 

Roles and Casting Opportunities

Cast Details:  Approx. 30 actors.  

We are looking for a cast of all ages, shapes, sizes, races, and gender identities.  Two female roles (Holly and Linda) are more heavy metal while others are more pop rock or traditional Broadway.  The lead character Robbie (played by Adam Sandler in the film) ideally plays guitar-- but that is not a necessity. 

Some featured roles are written specifically for African American Actors (impersonators of Tina Turner and Mr. T)

Production Schedule

Rehearsals will begin Thursday, January 27, 2022.  We will rehearse Tuesday-Friday nights and Sunday evenings, with two Saturday night rehearsals close to opening night.

Performances:  13 performances over three weekends, April 22-May 8, 2022.

 

What to Prepare

Please prepare a short monologue, comic or dramatic (60-90 seconds) as well as a short vocal audition.

What's a monologue? What if I don't have a prepared monologue?
