Outlaw Trail Theater Announcement 2017!

The Uintah Arts Council’s Outlaw Trail Theater is proud and excited to announce their 2017 summer shows! Yes, we said shows (plural)!

First of all, we are keeping with tradition by producing a musical… the incomparable Singin’ In the Rain! This show will be directed and choreographed by Taunia Wheeler with music director Brian Litton. The show will run June 19th thru July 1st. Auditions will be held in early-mid April and rehearsals will start May 1st.

Along with the musical, we will also be producing a fun-filled melodrama… Showtime On the Showboat or… Don’t Throw Garbage In the River! The melodrama will be directed by Jake Harrison! “Showtime” will run a few performances during the Uintah County Fair and again on Wednesday nights, June 21st and 28th, during the musical. Auditions for the melodrama will be held at the end of April and rehearsals, again, will begin in the first week of May.

Some Audition Pointers

The following is an excerpt from this article.

I found these pointers to be good–though you can find lots and lots of articles about this subject.


The audition process

Auditioning is the most nightmarish process imaginable for casting a project, but it’s the only one we have. Unless you’re already a hot commodity in the industry, you’re going to have to audition to keep working. No one can claim to be the expert on auditions. Every singer gets rejected. Every singer goes through times when no one wants to hire them. It’s part of the business. There are three main things to keep in mind when auditioning:

  1. They want you to do well. The casting process is as exhausting and difficult for them as it is for you. They’re just waiting for the right person to walk in the room so they can all go home. Seeing them as the enemy doesn’t serve you. Don’t let the intimidating and often unfriendly situation keep you from doing your best work.
  2. Have fun. When it comes down to it, getting the job is 1% what you do, 9% what you look like, and 90% dumb luck. Do your best to control that 1% by being prepared, but don’t beat yourself up over not getting the job. Sometimes the reason you don’t get hired can be totally ludicrous. You have a better chance of success if you just take the opportunity to perform and have a good time.
  3. Have confidence in who you are and what you have to offer. Confidence sells, just like in any other industry. This in no way means “be arrogant”. Arrogant people aren’t confident, they’re just – well schmucks. Be yourself, and you’ll have more to bring to the table. Be prepared and you’ll have your best work to offer.
    The rest you’ll learn through experience. Audition classes and workshops are available as well. Singing is one of the most rewarding professions in the entertainment industry. Work hard and stick with it, the world needs good singers and the stories they tell.

Preparing for auditions
If you ask a casting director what matters most when a singer shows up to an audition, most will tell you that the singer needs to “be prepared” Of course, being on time is usually a positive bonus as well.

It should be obvious, but it’s surprising how many singers make a bad impression with something as simple as inappropriate behavior. You have to keep in mind that casting directors already have the job, you don’t. So you need to prove yourself to them, not the other way around. Some suggestions from casting directors include things like avoid unnecessary chit-chat. Don’t linger in the room for too long after you sing.

A feeling of desperation is another sure way not to get a callback. Keep calm and collected, you don’t want to come off as if you’re begging or pleading. Consider each audition an opportunity or a chance to perform for an audience. Or walk into the audition saying, “No matter what happens, I’ll do the best I can today.” The casting director is not here to judge you harshly; he or she simply wants to find the perfect person for the job. Give yourself the best opportunity possible.

Sometimes singers will seek out singing coaches to prepare them for an audition. Don’t over prepare though, you want to retain a substantial amount of flexibility. The bottom line is that you don’t know exactly what the casting director is looking for unless is it very specific. The casting director will often ask you to sing differently, if you’ve become set in your ways about how you’re singing, it will be difficult to change. Be comfortable with what you’re doing, but be prepared to change.
