Hello, Dolly! Cast List

Dear Auditioners,

Wow!  We were very impressed! We feel terrible not to be able to cast everyone. Nearly 100 people auditioned, 48 were called back, and only 32 were cast.  Please understand that super incredibly talented people were not cast… If you were not cast, do not believe for a second that you are not talented.  Also, please consider volunteering behind the scenes or helping with piano during our rehearsals by emailing us at volunteers@upperroomtheatreministry.org

URTM is a family and we love to welcome new faces!

REHEARSAL SCHEDULE

Our first rehearsal is this WEDNESDAY, MAY 23, 6:30-10:00pm in our Performing Arts Center (PAC) where you came for callbacks.  We need full cast to be present (unless indicated on your Conflict Form).  Somc performers will not be called the whole rehearsal, and those under 18 should be released close to 9:30. The dates and times of our first few rehearsals will be published very soon… we need to build it based on the conflicts… it’ll come soon!  

NOTE: Tentatively, our next rehearsals after the 5/23 first rehearsal, will be Thursday 5/24 (6:30-10pm), Saturday 5/26 (9am-2pm), Sunday 5/27 (5-10pm), Monday 5/28 (5-10pm), Tuesday 5/29 (6:30-10pm), Wednesday 5/30 (6:30-10pm), Saturday 6/2 (9am-1pm), and Sunday 6/3 (5-10pm). (These first rehearsals are subject to change – so please do NOT add new conflicts – we schedule and adjust rehearsals based on the exact availability you gave us for your summer, so dates/times may shift.)

BRING A PENCIL AND BOTTLE OF WATER TO EVERY REHEARSAL, INCLUDING THE FIRST REHEARSAL on 5/23.

NOTE: We will be taking your headshot pictures at the FIRST REHEARSAL, so please dress appropriately. They are displayed in black & white in our theatre lobby during the show.

Please make sure you have installed TheMTPit accompaniment tracks on your smart phone or listened to it on your computer so have full accompaniment to use at home. (TheMTPit tracks mimic what our orchestrations will sound like for the show.)

THREE WAYS TO ACCESS THEMTPIT MUSIC:

  1. Apple Devices: Download the free app (TheMTPit) from the App Store. Once it is downloaded, you will then open the app and enter the “387df” code in the rehearsal code line. Click on “Downloads” to download the rehearsal music to your device. Then go to “Shows” to play the music. You will need internet connection to download the music initially, but once it is downloaded to your device, the music plays through the app regardless. No user name or password needed.
  2. Android Devices: Download the free app (TheMTPit) from Google Play. Follow the same instructions as the Apple devices above.
  3. Computers/Laptops: If you are using a computer or do not want to download the app, you can stream the rehearsal tracks through the internet by going to the website http://dashboard.themtpit.com and enter the “387df” code in the rehearsal code line.

Also, we will keep the most up-to-date schedule online via our calendar page (and if you use Gmail, you can add this into your own Google Calendar too, but you do NOT need to have a Gmail account to view this calendar). For all of the details and to view the online calendar on any of your devices or computers, click here (http://www.UpperRoomTheatreMinistry.org/schedule/).

I know it is very hard to put your all into an audition and then not see your name.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

We are looking forward to an exciting summer!
