Open auditions are held for each show, usually in September (for the Fall musical), December (for the Winter drama), and February (for the Spring G&S operetta). For the musicals, we have a cast-anyone policy for Georgetown students, so there is no way you will be left out if you want to be on stage.
After the completion of auditions, cast/chorus members will receive e-mail regarding rehearsal schedules. Rehearsals usually run 7:00-10:00 pm M-F for the 6 weeks prior to the show. Principals may expect to rehearse 4 nights a week; chorus members usually are called 2 nights a week for the first few weeks. The last 2 weeks before the show the full cast may be called every night. Additionally, every cast and chorus member will be assigned to a tech crew, which will involve, at minimum, the weekends before and during the run of the show, and at least 1-2 other weekends before that.
Tech & Backstage Crews
Love to hammer things, screw things (with a screwdriver of course), paint flats, play with electricity, or generally just get messy? Come help us backstage! This is a great way to get involved if you don't have the time to devote to rehearsal on weeknights, or don't want to be on stage. Just stop by an audition and talk to the stage manager, or drop us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what you're interested in. Tech crew members are, of course, happily welcomed to any and all cast parties!
We welcome anyone with orchestra/band experience who would like to play in the pit! The time commitment for the orchestra is generally 3-4 rehearsals preceding show week, then every night during show week. The Musical Director is in charge of recruitment for each show, so if you're interested, please e-mail email@example.com. Orchestra members are, of course, happily welcomed to any and all cast parties!
We suspect this is why you're really interested. GG&SS holds a party every Friday night after rehearsal. We also have parties after every show during production week.
