The South Dakota Symphony Orchestra will hold local auditions for their “Holly Jolly Company” in the 2018 Christmas spectacular, Tis the Season: Christmas with the SDSO! The hit production delighted two sold out audiences last year with its seasonal music, Broadway talent, and dancing Santas, all onstage at the glorious Mary W. Sommervold Hall of the Washington Pavilion.
The Holly Jolly Company will consist of 12 members of the community who consider themselves a triple threat. We’re looking for those who can sing, dance, and act in front of large audiences! You’ll work directly with Broadway performers and world-class musicians to put on the Christmas production of the season!
The open auditions will be held over two days: Sunday, August 12 at 2:00 PM and Monday, August 13 at 6:00 PM. Callbacks will be held on Tuesday, August 14 at 6:00 PM for selected individuals. Auditions will be held at the First Congregational Church in Sioux Falls. Doors will open a half hour prior to the start of the audition. Each person will be asked to complete an audition form upon arrival.
Each auditionee should come with a prepared vocal solo that illustrates his or her vocal range and ability. A pianist will be provided. There will also be a brief movement/dance segment of the audition. Please wear comfortable clothing.
Performances are Saturday, December 8 at 2:30 PM and 7:30 PM, and Sunday, December 9 at 2:30 PM.
The Holly Jolly Company will rehearse once per week, and will have the privilege of rehearsing alongside the South Dakota Symphony Chorus. In addition, the Holly Jolly Company will be rehearsing nightly the week of production, beginning Saturday, December 1.
A small stipend will be provided.
