  • ·        What is the Evansville Civic Theatre’s NEXTWAVE? The Evansville Civic Theatre has had a long, rich history of providing quality entertainment to the community. But a theater is only as good as its performers. We have been very fortunate to showcase many talented local performers and have built a wonderful family of theater enthusiasts within our community. We here at ECT would like to see that family grow. Enter, ECT - NEXTWAVE. The NEXTWAVE is the banner of our Educational Program. NEXTWAVE offers productions to young students, with the hope of educating individuals in the art of theater and in essence, training the next generation of great Civic Theatre performers.

SINGING: Please prepare 16-32 bars from a song that best shows off your voice. An accompanist will not be provided, but a piano will be present at auditions if you choose to bring your own player. No acappella singing, please. If you have an accompaniment CD or mp3 on your phone, there will be a CD player and/or speaker provided. Absolutely nothing from: Wicked, Hamilton, Hairspray, Disney films, Godspell, or Thoroughly Modern Milli. You will sing first, then dance, then act. Those arriving late to auditions will be asked to sing at the end of auditions.

DANCE: Please be prepared to learn a portion of the original Chorus Line audition dance, a small ballet combination, a kick line, and a couple of taps steps. Everyone should dress in either dance clothes or athletic attire that shows your movements.  No tight jeans, please. Women should wear either character shoes, sneakers, or jazz shoes. Men should wear jazz shoes or comfortable sneakers. Tap shoes are not necessarily required since the tap portion in the show is done in character or jazz shoes.

ACTING:  Monologues and cold readings will be provided at auditions. Examples of monologues can be found at: https://www.scribd.com/doc/231454273/A-Chorus-Line-Monologues

REHEARSAL SCHEDULE:
Our rehearsals are generally in the evenings from 6-9:30 pm on weekdays (Monday-Thursday); however, depending on cast availability there may be some weekend dance rehearsals added in. Please bring your calendar with you as you will be required to list your conflicts between November 14, 2016 and January 29, 2017. Only stated conflicts at the time of audition will be considered for approval. All major holidays, that take place during the rehearsal process, will be observed and students will be given time off.  Any additional conflicts will not be considered. There are no conflicts allowed during production week, which will begin on Sunday, January 15, 2017.

SYNOPSIS OF A CHORUS LINE:
Centered on seventeen Broadway dancers auditioning for spots on a chorus line, the musical is set on the bare stage of a Broadway theatre during an audition for a musical.
