About the Event

Auditions for Seven Brides for Seven Brothers Ages 16 + are invited to audition. Please prepare one minute song and one minute monologue.  A bluetooth speaker will be provided for music, or you are welcome to bring your own accompanist. Auditions are held at the Nuart Theatre, but the performance will be at the Blackfoot Performing Arts Center August 2nd, 3rd, and 5th-10th.

A note about rehearsals: Scripts will be handed out and light choreography and music rehearsals will begin late March. They will only be once a week or less, depending on the numbers that will be worked on. In June, rehearsals will begin 2-3 times per week. If the cast comes prepared in June with the music and choreography learned, there will be less rehearsals during the summer, which will allow more freedom for the cast to enjoy summer activities.
