Kaimuki High School Performing Arts Center
Announces Auditions for
The Rocky Horror Show
Kaimuki High School Performing Arts Center holds auditions for its spring musical production of "The Rocky Horror Show" December 11-13. Students enrolled at any public school on Oahu are encouraged to audition. This audition is open to students from grade 7 to grade 12. Play Production credit is available to qualifying students. Auditions will be held December11 and 12 from 3:00 to 6:30 p.m. at KHSPAC's auditorium. Callbacks only on December 13, from 2:30-6 p.m.
KHSPAC is looking for committed young actors, singers, and dancers for the cast of The Rocky Horror Show.
The Rocky Horror Show, with music, lyrics, and book by Richard O'Brien, is a story of self discovery and being true to your own nature. It is also a humorous tribute to the science fiction B movies of the 1950s. The musical tells the story of newly engaged couple, Brad Majors and Janet Weiss, who take shelter from a storm in an old castle -- which happens to be inhabited by mad-scientist-alien, Dr. Frank N. Furter, who is about to unveil his newest creation, "Rocky".
The musical, originally produced and directed by Jim Sharman, premiered in London, at the Royal Court Theatre (Upstairs) in June of 1973, moved on to several other locations, and closed in September of 1980. It ran for a total of 2,960 performances, and won the 1973 Evening Standard Award for Best Musical. Its 1974 debut in the US in Los Angeles had a successful 9 month run.
The play was adapted into a film, and released in 1975 as The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The film is the longest-running release in film history; it has never been pulled from rotation of its original release, and continues to play in cinemas all over the world. The film, as well as the play, has become the very definition of a cult classic.
Performers should come prepared to sing at least 16 bars of a Broadway song from traditional Broadway or Rock Musical repertoire (shows like The Who's Tommy, Rent, Next To Normal, and Grease). Rock songs are also options. No pop or rap songs. Please bring sheet music written in the key you will perform it -- a pianist will be provided. No recordings or acapella will be allowed.
Performers should prepare a memorized monologue about one minute in length for the acting portion of the audition. Come dressed in appropriate dance clothes and shoes for the dance audition.
Rehearsals at KHSPAC begin with a read-through of the play on Tuesday, December 17, 2013. All actors are required to attend the read-through.
Monday-Friday rehearsals 3:30pm to 6:30pm; Saturday rehearsals 10:00am to 4:00pm (TBD.) Performances run from Feb. 21 -- March 9. Please bring conflict information for Dec. 17 -- March 9 to the auditions.
