Requesting Submissions from all genders and ethnicities.
Melchior Gabor (Tenor) A headstrong, smart and charismatic schoolboy. He knows much more than the others because of what he reads in books and is able to see the corruption in society. His radical points of view about most things are correct but misunderstood. He falls in love with Wendla.
Moritz Stiefel (Bari-Tenor) Melchior’s intense and nervous best friend. He has an overwhelming confusion relating to sexual feelings, which seems comedic at first, but quickly develops into a serious issue for him. The system has failed him. Highly sensitive and aware of his inability to fit into the system. Feels like a failure. One of the childhood four: Wendla, Melchior, Moritz and Ilse.
Requesting self-tapes using the following audition selections: Melchior - “Totally Fucked” (m.53-78) and “All That’s Known” (m.1-25), Moritz - “I Don’t Do Sadness” (m.17-54). Sheet music, melody tracks, and accompaniment tracks available here: https://tinyurl.com/SACuts. Please use the accompaniment tracks when recording. Include a slate with your name, height, and a 30-second response to the question “How does the story of Spring Awakening resonate with you?”
Please email self tapes to firstname.lastname@example.org
