Please note - The positions offered by the Shanachie Theater are full time and salaried. Members of the Company and Band will be expected to keep to a strict rehearsal and performance schedule. Sick and holiday pay is non-negotiable and subject to duration of employment. The directorship withhold the right to terminate employment, should contractual obligations not be met.

The structure of the Theater Company auditions will be as follows - group warm ups, followed by individual dance, singing, and acting interviews. They will be asked to learn and repeat one dance routine, perform one pre-prepared song, and one pre-prepared scene.

Applicants for the positions in the Repertory Company will be interviewed individually. They will be asked to perform a prepared audition piece of their own choosing, and sight-read and perform a monologue chosen by the in-house director.

Applicants for positions in the Ballet Company will be invited back to audition with the ballet directors. There will be set pieces, as well as a solo and group audition.

((OOC Note - The Shanachie Theater Companies and House Band are intended to be a platform for players to expand their horizons among the community. Applications can be considered to be successful if made. Regular play, in forums and/or live, would be very much appreciated where time permits. Players' names will be attached to the pertinent productions in varying roles, unless they specifically state otherwise. Please note, if you are currently on the Roll Call of the Shanachie's Companies, you will need to add your details to this thread, or contact me directly via PM, to keep that place in the Shanachie line up. In light of the last couple of years experience at this, we are also adding that should your character join the Shanachie and then do absolutely nothing - play in the rooms, post on the boards, etc - for an extended period of time, we will remove your character from the Roll Call.))

For this year's audition, Aran and Carina had decided to do something a little different, killing two birds with one stone, so to speak. They were already both members of the theater company, after all, so auditioning was merely a formality.

It had been Carina's idea, knowing how nervous Aran always got at auditions; and so, the couple had chosen to perform the most romantic duet they could think of - "Tonight" from West Side Story. It wasn't hard pretending to be a young couple in love, since they had been married for a few years now, and it was the Shanachie Theater they had to credit for their meeting.

Maggie sang "Flashlight", from "Pitch Perfect 2."

Maggie wore her own black leather armor that bore the crest of her grandmother's troops, a rearing unicorn against a sunrise.
"Then again, what do I know, I'm a kid."

For as long as he could remember, all Rob had ever wanted to do was become an actor. He was just as fond of horses as his father, but his dreams for the future had always involved a stage, not a stable.

As such, he'd been enrolled in the STARS program for a few years now and was starting his first year at the Rosita De Luca School of Performing Arts, with the hope of making acting a career. He'd had a few minor roles in the Repertory Company in the past, due to his connection with STARS, but now that he was sixteen, his parents and teachers had encouraged him to officially audition as a guest performer.

Though he was not from Rhy'Din or even Earth, Rob had discovered and subsequently become obsessed with the work of Shakespeare, and for his prepared piece, had chosen "Mercutio's Monologue", finding that part far more interesting than that of the lovesick Romeo.

For his second monologue, he was asked to sight read and perform "Charlie's Monologue" from The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Though Dorian was currently on paternity leave due to the birth of his first child, he wasn't about to miss filing an application for the Shanachie. After all, he'd been a regular member of one company or the other since his arrival in Rhydin City a few years ago. He added a note that he was willing to arrange for an audition, but seeing as how he'd been with the theater for the last four years, he figured he'd already proven his worth. With that done, he sent it off to the theater via courier ...
