Book by Chad Beguelin and Tim Herlihy Music by Matthew Sklar Lyrics by Chad Beguelin
It's 1985, and rock star wannabe, Robbie Hart, is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer. He's the life of the party until his own fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and, unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.

Tips for auditioning for Musical Theatre
Before the Audition
Acquaint yourself with the musical – either read the script, watch a movie or video, check the Internet, YouTube or attend the show. Your audition will be better if you know what part you want. You will be confident and have a better audition.
BE ON TIME!!! DON’T BE LATE!!! Arrive at LEAST 20 minutes before your scheduled audition time, but be aware that sometimes auditions run earlier/later than your scheduled time.
Dress appropriately. Dress in good taste. Be comfortable in your attire so that your audition exudes confidence. Jeans are acceptable. Use common sense when dressing for an audition – sometimes you may be asked to move - dress in clothing that does not restrict movement.
Come warmed up. Rise early, sip warm (not hot) water with lemon and honey, stretch, vocalize and breathe. Our bodies are stiff in the morning. Early auditions can be a challenge, but you can conquer them with a good attitude. Avoid caffeine, dairy, energy drinks, soda and heavy foods. Tell yourself you will be great! Positive thoughts. Avoid worry! Arrive EARLY! Find a place you can warm up.
During and After the Audition:
Look and act confident as you the audition space – we will be auditioning in the Choir Room. Watch your posture. Slouching and shuffling indicates a lack of self-confidence. Keep your shoulders back, walk tall, head held high and step confidently on stage.
Sing with expression, volume and energy. Don’t overdo hand or arm motions or try to dance. Don’t grab your clothes or play with your fingers or hands. Just SING.
With the dialogue, keep the stage movements simple and unencumbered. Don’t try to stage the scene, but be familiar with the lines of the scene you are auditioning with.
After your audition, smile and say “thank you”.
Present a good attitude. Accept any part you are offered as an opportunity to grow and learn.
