Cast

This year we will be staging one musical and one play: Disney's Freaky Friday the Musical and The Haunting of Hill House, respectively. Applicants are allowed and encouraged to audition for both shows, but will be asked to preference which show they would rather be in. Applicants may be called back for both, but will ultimately only be cast in one show.

OTL practices inclusive casting and welcomes all those who wish to audition to do so!

AUDITION SIGN-UPS ARE LIVE - READ BELOW!

Musical - Freaky Friday

When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again. Freaky Friday, a new musical based on the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, is a heartfelt, comedic, and unexpectedly emotional update on an American classic. By spending a day in each other's shoes, Katherine and Ellie come to appreciate one another's struggles, learn self-acceptance, and realize the immeasurable love and mutual respect that bond a mother and daughter (Music Theatre International).

AUDITIONS:

Auditions will be October 17th-21st from 7pm-10pm in the Busch Palette Room

MATERIALS:

  • Prepare a 30 second - 1 minute cut of a song in the style of the show (acappella or you may provide your own backing track)
  • Prepare a 30 second to 1 minute monologue (prefer comedic - no Shakespeare)
  • Dance Call will be Monday October 24th 7pm-10pm in Lawrence Tower Ballroom 
  • Everyone who auditions must attend the dance call 

CALLBACKS:

Be available for callbacks October 25th-27th from 7pm-10pm

  • Callback email will go out by noon on Saturday the 22nd

*Disclaimer*

Not everyone who auditions will be called back. If you do not get a callback this does not mean you will not be cast in the show. Being called back also does not guarantee a part in the show.

 

Play - The Haunting of Hill House:

Cut off from the outside world by its remote location and shunned by all who know its forbidding and sinister reputation, Hill House has remained empty and silent except for the daily visits of its grumbling caretaker, Mrs. Dudley. Its isolation is broken by the arrival of Dr. Montague, an investigator of supernatural phenomena who has been granted a short lease by the present owner. His mission is to delve into the morbid history of the house and to come to grips with the occult forces that have made it uninhabitable for many years. He is joined by three others, all unacquainted, but all having their particular reasons for accepting Dr. Montague’s invitation to share his Hill House sojourn. Their visit begins with jovial informality, but their sensibilities are soon jolted by strange and eerie occurrences. As they struggle to disguise their mounting fears they are joined by Dr. Montague’s wife and a friend, who have come to Hill House for purposes of their own. They too are absorbed by the supernatural, but their approach is via direct communication with the departed spirits—a type of psychic research which is regarded fearfully by Dr. Montague and which, as subsequent events bear out, brings on a crisis in which the evil forces of Hill House are goaded to a new and, for one of those present, fatal fury (Dramatists Play Service).

AUDITIONS:

Auditions will be October 17th-21st from 7pm-10pm in the Nosker Mansfield Room (10/18 in Nosker Marion Room)
