The Springfield Muni Opera Announces 2019 Audition Workshop

The Springfield Municipal Opera (“The Muni”) will hold Auditions Workshops in preparation for its upcoming auditions for the 2019 Season. The Muni encourages anyone interested in auditioning to attend the FREE Auditions Workshops on Saturday, February 16 at the Hoogland Center for the Arts. The 2019 season of Peter Pan, Evita, Thoroughly Modern Millie and Wizard of Oz requires performers of all ages and abilities.

This year we will be returning to two workshops, one for children at 10 a.m. and one for adults at 1 p.m. The Auditions Workshops provide an opportunity to learn about the audition process, including how to register via The Muni’s online registration form and how to prepare for an audition. Attendees will hear from the directors of each show about their expectations, casting requirements and planned rehearsal schedules. The shows’ directors and staffs will be available to answer questions and distribute music. Those attending the workshop will also be granted access to the online registration form to sign up for an audition slot before it is opened up to the public on Sunday. 

Auditions for adults will be held March 2, 3 and 9. Auditions for children will be held March 16. There are children’s roles for Peter Pan, Evita and Wizard of Oz. All auditions and call-backs will be at the Hoogland Center for the Arts. For more information about The Muni’s Audition Workshop and Auditions, please visit www.TheMuni.org
