Near West Theatre will be holding auditions as we never have before: through video submission! Youth ages 9 – 18 are invited to submit an a single audition video to be considered for a role in NWT’s upcoming winter production of Les Misérables School Edition. The production will be presented as a staged concert, which will be recorded with COVID-19 precautions in place, over multiple days. The scenes will be edited together and then shared with the community via Music Theatre International’s preferred platform: ShowTix4U. Les Misérables School Edition performances are scheduled from February 26 to March 7, 2021.
Information about the rehearsal/recording process
The rehearsal process will be more of a hybrid approach consisting of both virtual (Zoom) and in-person (for individual staging and recordings only) rehearsals.
Rehearsals will be scheduled on Sundays 12:00–7:00pm, Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays 6:30–9:30pm. Not everyone will be called for every rehearsal. Attendance is mandatory for all rehearsals you are scheduled for. Typically we have 8 weeks to prepare for a large production and this time we only have 4 to 5 five weeks to prepare before recording.
Production Schedule (subject to change):
Masks are required at all times when you are in the building.
