Please prepare a short selection of about 2 minutes or 32-bars from a current musical, something contemporary that is in the style of the show. (For adults, think Next to Normal, Dear Evan Hansen, The Last Five Years, etc.; for children, consider something more pop in the style of The Partridge Family, The Jackson Five, The Osmonds, etc.) Selections should be a bit more dramatic for those auditioning for the Narrator, Father and Mother; more comedic and/or up-tempo for everyone else.

THE STORY: Twenty-five years after her father’s unexpected death, “the Narrator” dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose mercurial temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, “the Narrator” relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s business, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the lurking, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires. The Vokes Players Fall Musical, whose title cannot be revealed at this time because of a contractual embargo until July 1st, is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about discovering who you truly are and seeing your parents through grown-up eyes and ultimately discovered who you truly are.
