Audition information for our next production:
Elf the Musical
Auditions for Maui OnStage’s ELF the musical will be Monday, September 28th from 5:30 – 9:30 at the Historic Iao Theater in Wailuku with callbacks on Wednesday, September 30th. Please note that the roles of Buddy and Jovi are cast – all other roles are open and we are looking for all ages to play the many roles in this “Sparklejollytwinklejingley” musical that is back by overwhelming demand.
Please prepare two contrasting one-minute songs (up-tempo and ballad) from a traditional musical theater piece, nothing contemporary. Bring sheet music in your key – an accompanist will be provided OR you may sing to a CD or MP3 player – accompaniment should NOT include vocals.
Callbacks for dancing and reading / singing specific roles will be held on Wednesday, September 30 from 6:00 – 9:30. Rehearsals will begin on October 6th and the production runs for three weeks (with possible additional shows) November 27 – December 13. Production team includes: Director – Alexis Dascoulias, Choreographer – Erin Kowalick and Musical Director – Steven Dascoulias. Join Maui OnStage this holiday season and explore your inner Elf!
