Auditions The Virgin Courtesan auditions will be held on June 11th and 12th, 2012. Strong singers required. The music for TVC is demanding and might be loosely classified as "contemporary musical theatre." See Breakdowns below.
Applicants should prepare two Broadway-style songs (up tempo + ballad), which allows both the technical and emotional qualities of their voices to be revealed. Bring sheet music, an accompanist will be provided. If the key in which the singer sings is different than the published music, the transposition must be impeccably notated. Markings such as "coda,"repeat signs," "Dal Sengo" etc. should be highlighted.Auditions will be held at the D.B. Clarke Theatre, 1455 de Maisonneuve West.
