Footloose Auditions Afoot

Bohemians boot camp and casting call for Footloose

The Bohemians’ boot camp for putative performers in the March 2018 production of Footloose the Musical is this weekend, 10-11 June 2017, ahead of open auditions the following weekend.

The company has a few spaces left over both weekends and is looking to audition for both principal and chorus roles. Both the boot camp and auditions will be at the St Stephen’s Centre in Stockbridge.

The boot camp is aimed at those who would like to audition for the show and who would like to learn some choreography and a song ahead of their audition. Auditionees need only attend for either Saturday or Sunday and only for a couple of hours, depending on which role they are auditioning for.

The Bohemians say: “Footloose is a riot for cast and audiences alike, providing great opportunities for acting, singing, and dancing. But don’t worry: despite being a show about the right to dance, we make a point of staggering choreography to make the entire show accessible. Even if you have two left feet!

Footloose the Musical is based on the 1984 film directed by Herbert Ross – itself loosely based on real events.

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the adjustment to his new high school. What he isn’t prepared for are the local laws – including a ban on Ren’s favourite pastime: dancing.

Dialogue auditions over the weekend of 17/18 June will only last around 10 minutes, with dance auditions performed as a group. An auditions pack for all auditionees contains more details and will be sent to all those emailing a request for an audition.

To request an audition pack – which includes character breakdowns, audition and boot camp info – email blocauditions@gmail.com or message the Bohemians’ Facebook page.
