Producers will host an open call for the Toronto engagement of Dear Evan Hansen, which begins performances in March 2019 at the Royal Alexandra Theatre, July 23.
The production is seeking actors 17 years and older to play high school seniors Evan Hansen (pop tenor G2-B4) and Alana Beck (pop soprano F3-E5 belt). Sign in for the open call begins at 9 AM and will continue through noon at the Estonian House, 958 Broadview Avenue in Toronto.
Actors should prepare 16 bars of a pop/rock or any contemporary musical theatre song. Those interested should bring sheet music and a picture (with a resume stapled to the back). An accompanist will be provided.
CAEA members will be seen first at open calls. Auditions will continue until all actors have been seen.
Dear Evan Hansen features a score by the Tony- and Oscar-winning songwriting team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Dogfight, A Christmas Story), a book by Tony winner Steven Levenson (Masters of Sex), choreography by Danny Mefford (Fun Home), and direction by multiple Tony nominee Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal, If/Then).
If you are not able to attend the open call, send a picture and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
