Auditions released for Disney 2019 cast! If you are 13-24 in October 2019, sign up to try out!
If you are under 13 (in October 2019), and want to audition, get in touch by email - we will consider younger cast where possible :-)
If you love musical theatre, and would like to audition to be part of our 2019 Disneyworld Artemis Showcase cast - sign up now to meet us and show off your talent!
Each year, we take a group of between 21 and 30 performers to Disney World in Florida to perform at Disney Springs on the Waterside Stage for the public! We travel in October Half Term, and enjoy three workshops with Disney Directors, time in the four parks, a shopping trip to outlet shops in a private bus and of course Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Party with Trick or Treating for Halloween!
Open to the public, as well as Artemis School and Artemis College students. You need to be aged *13-24 in October 2019, and have a talent in either singing and or dancing. The show is a 25 minute set of big musical theatre numbers. We are a Show Choir - think Glee!
*We can consider younger artisits if they are exceptional dancers or singers, able to keep up with older cast, and have a parent who is willing to travel with them and chaperone them if needed in the USA.
In the audition you will work with our choreographers and musical directors who will be looking for people who have a developed talent - but also those who could be brilliant with some extra training.
You will do a 45 minute singing workshop, 45 minute dancing and then a 30 minute Q&A which parents are welcome to join.
If you would like to be considered for solo lines in the songs, or solo work in the dances (tap is especially useful) - please prepare a 60 second piece of work to show us - or send video links to previous shows. If you are happy to be group or have solos allocated during the rehearsal process then you don't need to worry about prep.
Please note - auditioning for solo work does not guarantee you will be given solos in the final piece. It DOES tell us you would like to solo and are not shy on stage! We try to be fair and give everyone a chance to stand out - but solo work will be based on the songs chosen, and ability of the cast to sing/perform them.
If you are selected and accept a place - prep starts in May 2019 - when the songs will be chosen to sit the cast we have picked. You will be expected to be off book with lyrics before the first rehearsal.
There will be a cast meet and greet in May, where you will also be measured for cast tee shirts and costumes, which will be custom made for you. There will be a photographer there for your first cast pictures!
Friday 2nd August: 10-5pm You will start rehearsals in Summer 2019. There will be an induction day on Friday 2nd August - with singing and movement assessments and a chance for the musical directors and choreographers to place people in the numbers.
Monday 5th August- Friday 9th August 10am - 1pm*. 90 mins with a highly skilled Musical Director and singing coach, followed by 90 mins of blocking the songs. The half days allow teens with jobs to work some shifts around rehearsals.
*Performers aged 16-18 have the option to stay until 5pm and work on Duos for graded exams in musical theatre, taken as part of our college program on Saturday 20th August.
12th August - Friday 19th August 10-5pm. 90 mins a day with the MD/singing coach, followed by intense rehearsals putting the show together. By the end of the week the show will be set and ready to polish!
September: 1st, 15th, 29th, 10-5pm. Final rehearsals. Cast recording. Costume fittings.
October: 13th 10-5pm. Final rehearsal - parents invited to watch at the end of the day.
The trip will depart on Friday 18th October and return a week later. Flight dates are TBC and not confirmed until flights are booked!
Please do not book any family flights/hotels for supporters until the whole cast is confirmed, and dates 100% firm.
The cost of the trip in 2019 will depend on the flights. It is expected to be in the region of £1450 per student for all training plus trip. A deposit of £250 is due upon acceptance of a place. Deposits will be refundable if the trip is cancelled by Artemis Studios due to low numbers. Full information is available on our website, and will be available at the auditions.
