AUDITIONS

Summer Cast Auditions

The SaskExpress Summer Tour is a development program and performers are offered a scholarship. In order to be considered for the summer tour, performers must be 15 years of age or older. Contracts run from March to early September. Performers do not need to be out of school, but do need to commit to weekend rehearsals from March to June. Performances will run from June to early September. Extensive travel is involved. 

Performers will be adjudicated by a panel including the Artistic Director of SaskExpress. Auditions for dancers are judged by a professional dance teacher and/or choreographer and the Artistic Director. Singers are expected to perform 32 bars of two vocal selections in contrasting styles of your own choosing and 32 bars of a piece selected and distributed ahead of time by SaskExpress. You must prepare a short monologue, no longer than one minute in length, or you'll be given an improv piece to perform for your private audition and you will also be required to do some part-singing with other performers. All those auditioning must take part in a group dance audition and if you are selected for call backs, you will be doing group and part singing.
