Next to Normal Auditions

When: December 10th at 7pm, Location: Slidell Little Theatre
Next to Normal is a 2008 American rock musical with book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt. The story centers on a mother who struggles with worsening bipolar disorder and the effects that managing her illness has on her family. The musical addresses grief, depression, suicide, drug abuse, ethics in modern psychiatry, and the underbelly of suburban life.

Please prepare a 30-60 second dramatic monologue and 32 bars (about a minute and a half) of a contemporary Broadway song (preferably not from the show) with an accompaniment/karaoke track on a mobile device. A speaker will be provided.

**There will be no dance call**

Please be prepared to match pitch and test vocal range and possibly stay after your initial audition.

Your picture may be taken at the time of auditions. This will be to facilitate casting, costume and make-up requirements for the show.
