Auditions are being held for students 13-18 for the pit band for Rent: The High School Edition.
The show will perform from February 26th-February 29th at the .Zach Theatre. This is a great opportunity to learn how to play in a pit from Dave Brandt, an experienced Music Director/Keyboard Player. There is not a paying job but food will be provided at some rehearsals.
Rehearsals will be scheduled according to the availability of all of the members of the band.
For the Audition: Guitarists bring guitar and amp. Bassists bring small amp or we will provide one for you. We will have a drum kit in the rehearsal studio for drummers to use. Please prepare any 2 contrasting 90s rock songs (2 songs that are different in style) and be familiar with the score of rent as there will be some sight reading from the show score.
Walk-ins are allowed but those with appointments will be seen first.
Auditions will be held at Utupia Studios:
3957 Park Ave, St. Louis, MO 63110
Excessive Absences or Tardiness:
Unless prior arrangements have been made with the Staff for absences or late arrival; The Staff reserves the right to remove musicans who are not present at rehearsals and give their part to another musician.
The Staff and Student Musicians will be working hard and taking the rehearsal process extremely seriously. Everyone has the same goal: To Put on a Fantastic and Exciting Production of Rent. If a Student Musician consistently disrupts rehearsals and is exhibiting behavior that is counteractive to our collective goal of having fun while putting on a great show, the Staff reserves the right to Call the Students Parent for early pickup and expulsion from the program. Please only enroll your children in this program if they are mature enough to handle the maturity level required to participate in this show.
Pre-Tech Week Rehearsals will be agreed upon once the band has been selected based upon all the members' schedules.
