'Spring Awakening' auditions--more details

Atlantis Productions (“Avenue Q,” “Hairspray”) is mounting the Tony-winning musical next year, to be directed by Chari Arespacochaga. The audition details:

When: Dec. 9, 2008, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. (Sign-up begins at 10 a.m.)

Where: Spotlight Studio, Dona Consolacion, 122 Jupiter St., Makati City

Prepare: 16 bars of a musical theater or pop/alternative rock song

Bring: Piano piece or minus-one on CD, and current photo and resume

Auditionees must be 18 years old and above. Call Atlantis Productions 8927078 for inquiries.

PLUS: A tip from composer Duncan Sheik himself--“The concept was that the music would be completely contemporary and modern, and it was a difficult process to get to that place... I'll be really honest with you, we had some kids who were really very 'Broadway' in the initial workshops, and even some of the kids who are in the show now, they've done Les Miz and Ragtime and things like that. So they sing in that way, and--it was torture for me. I had to kind of crack the whip with them, 'You're not Cosette, you're Fiona Apple.' You know, 'Pretend that you're Thom Yorke. You're a kid in your bedroom who wants to be a rockstar.'” (More here.)

Yesterday, I had the rare opportunity to meet the cast and crew of Atlantis Productions' "Spring Awakening". It has an Tony award winning book and music, and very provocative mature subject matter. Should be stimulating to watch!
