MET-X Be More Chill Auditions!

When: Sunday, April 15 at 5-8pm

Where: Maryland Ensemble Theatre

What: Please prepare 16-32 bars of an uptempo song from a contemporary musical. Ages 16+ only. We will cast adults in the adult roles, and high school/college-age as the “teens”. We will also be considering performers for ensemble and featured dancer roles.* 

Callbacks: Tuesday, April 17 at 6pm at the same location. If you are called back, you will be singing and dancing, and be prepared to cold read if asked. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes you can move in.

Performances: June 28, 29, 30, and July 5, 6, 7 at 8pm; 3pm matinees on Sunday July 1 and Sunday July 8

*If you would like to be considered for a featured dancer role, and consider yourself a “dancer first”, please still prepare an audition cut of a song. At the audition, make sure you notify the auditioners in the room. You will have to sing at the initial audition, though there is a possibility we may cast some people who sing minimally and focus on dancing throughout the show. However, all of our auditionees will be considered for all roles in their age range.

Here you will find a link to the audition sign-up. Due to the large amount of auditionees last year, we have tried to make things a little easier by allowing you to sign up for time slots. You should arrive at the theatre AT LEAST half an hour before your scheduled time. If we are running a bit early and you are not present when called, your name will be pushed to the end of the list. Walk-ups are welcome, but we will not be able to assign you time slots; therefore, you must be present at 5:00. We will take you if there is a blank in the sign-ups or at the end. Also, make sure you take note of what time you chose before submitting this form. We will try to send confirmation emails, but we can not guarantee. If there are no options to choose from on this form, that means that all the slots are filled; however, that does not mean you can’t audition. You can still walk-up at 5:00 and we will fit you in.
