New Audition Times
Parts are still available for men and for all chorus parts. Contact Bill Abbott
We held auditions for principals and chorus members on MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26 and WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 28, 2001. Some parts are still available.
Those auditioning for principal roles or chorus should prepare two contrasting works, at least one of which should be in English, which best demonstrate their ability. For specific roles please prepare one aria with recitative (if applicable) from HMS Pinafore. Candidates should also be prepared to read dialogue.
For a description of the characters, see our characters page.
Troupers Light Opera would also like to speak to all those interested in backstage or other support work, such as set construction, set painting, publicity, costumes, properties, and so on. If interested please phone Anne Wachsman at (203) 637-4205.
