How to Audition for
Once On This Island

 

AUDITION TIMES AND INSTRUCTIONS

Auditions will be virtual and submitted through a vocal self-tape, due at 12:00pm (noon) on January 14th. Please fill out the audition form and upload one vocal audition self-tape. Please also submit a dance tape - see the dance audition video on this page to learn the dance. Please reach out to musket.prod@umich.edu if you have any challenges with completing this portion of the audition. Callback spaces will be announced closer to the audition dates (will be on campus). The audition/callback process may continue to change due to COVID-19, so please stay up to date on this website and our instagram @ummusket. Email musket.prod@umich.edu with any questions or concerns.

FOR THE VOCAL AUDITION, YOU SING A SONG OF YOUR CHOICE!

Plan to sing for approximately one minute. Be confident and have fun! ​Please introduce yourself at the beginning of the tape and share your name, year & school, and song choice. 

*We are only auditioning BIPOC artists due to the author's intent and the 'cultural, religious and racial divisions found in Haiti between the mulatto ruling class and the dark-skinned, rural peasants' embedded into the story for our production of Once On This Island*

DANCE AUDITION VIDEO

What Holding OOTI Auditions Over MLK Weekend Will Look Like

Cognizant of the holiday, how the identities of those auditioning may relate to all aspects of Marking Luther King Jr., as well as the significance for opportunities for rest within academic spaces, the OOTI creative team is offering the ability to Audition for the show via video.

To clarify, this is a substitution or alternative to auditioning over MLK weekend; if you are available and willing to audition in-person January 13th-16th you will not need to send in anything in advance! 

If interested in the video submission option, for more details please contact MUSKET Associate Producer Cortez Hill, chilljr@umich.edu
