Casting Call for The Sound of Musicals ...
Why not try something new, exciting and challenging?
Mullingar Shamrocks 2019 mega fundraiser, The Sound of the Musicals will hit Mullingar Park Hotel on 28 September and we need YOU!
Our information and casting night will be on Friday, 17 May starting at 7.00 pm in the Greville Arms Hotel. In order to bring a slice of Broadway to the Mullingar stage, we need people and lots of people. We are seeking up to 90 participants or more to make up seven teams which will each perform an abridged 12 minute version of a famous musical.
Anybody from the age of 10 upwards can come along and take part, we are looking for people of all ages and backgrounds. No previous singing or dancing experience is required either. We will have a place for everyone. However, if you can sing, dance or act come along and take part in an informal and relaxed audition in front of the production team.
If you wish to audition for a singing part, please prepare a one minute or less song to sing (it can be anything), and bring a backing track along. The handiest way to do this is to locate one on Youtube and bring your phone with you to the audition. A simple dance audition will be held in groups of 12 on the night and singing auditions will be one-on-one with just the team.
This is a show with a difference and will be a FIRST in the Mullingar area. On the night, seven abridged versions of famous musicals will be performed LIVE on the main stage by seven teams.
Once every mini-musical has performed there will be an awards ceremony where the best performances of the night in the various categories will be awarded. It is also expected to be a massive team-building, social and fun experience for all involved.
The night promises to be an all singing, all dancing extravaganza and it might even be better than last year's spectacular Strictly.
