The Hunchback of Notre Dame, August 19th-28th
West Works Theatre invites you to audition for our exciting multimedia concert production of The Hunchback of Notre Dame!
The show will be performed August 19-28 at the Silverlake Amphitheater in Eagle Mountain. Video/Zoom auditions will take place on May 3rd and 4th, and Zoom callbacks will take place on May 6th and 7th. Rehearsals will start the week of May 10th and will take place in the Ranches/Silverlake area of Eagle Mountain.
West Works Theatre practices identity-conscious casting. That means we are “actively and radically making space for all the different ways that actors exist in this world.”¹ We encourage actors of all sexualities, gender identities, ethnicities, body types, and abilities to audition.
We will be casting eight principal actors and eight additional choir members. Choir members will be pre-recorded on video and will have no obligation beyond June 27th. Principal actors will be performing live on stage and must be available to perform August 19-28. All speaking roles and solos will be split up between the principals.
***PLEASE NOTE all cast members MUST be available on June 12-13th and June 26th-27th for audio and video recording.***
Choir members will be paid $150. Principal actors will be paid $300.
