Spring Awakening Pit Auditions!

Do you want to “know the wonder” and join LTC’s production of Spring Awakening? Then you should audition for the Pit! Auditions will be held Saturday, December 12th from 12-3pm. Drop in when you are available between these times at the Livingston Theatre Building (31 Postal Plaza) on the Livingston Campus.

Spring Awakening is the story of German youths in 1891 facing the realities of adulthood, as told through a rock musical score. Exploring themes of sexuality, depression, and coming of age, Spring Awakening is a truly groundbreaking musical.

The score is orchestrated for the following instruments:

- Violin (Doubling on acoustic and electric guitar)*
- Viola
- Cello
- Bass (acoustic and electric)
- Guitar (acoustic, electric nylon acoustic, steel string acoustic, and 12 string acoustic)
- Drums (drum set, glockenspiel, other accessories)

*This book can be split between violin and electric guitar

Due to the difficulty of the music, you will be asked to prepare preselected sections of the music for your audition.

You may contact the music directors Kyle Buchanan (kbuchanan94@gmail.com), or Thomas Silkowski (tjs225@scarletmail.rutgers.edu) if you have any specific questions regarding the musical excerpts. There will also be a sight-reading portion at the audition.
