The Roar of the Crowd- A Word About the Ensemble

The Ensemble is the fabric that holds this beautiful tapestry together. Members of the ensemble are used extensively throughout the musical in multiple scenes with multiple costume changes. They represent a variety of Florentines: artist, shopkeepers, mothers, fathers, priests, tourists, lovers some with a line or two. The ensemble also sings in 2 musical numbers.

"Sing Out Louise"- Vocal Auditions

Auditioners should come prepared with a song especially one that shows your vocal range. An accompanist will be provided.

Those auditioning for Clara and Fabrizzio will also be asked to sing "Say it Somehow" measures 22-42. If you are unable to prepare this ahead of time our vocal director can teach it to you.

Margaret should be prepared to sing from "Dividing Day"
Franca should be prepared to sing from "The Joy You Feel"

Other auditioners will be taught a small portion of "Octet"

How to Speak Like an Italian

In preparation for The Light in the Piazza auditions I would suggest a few ways to get accainted with the language.

Readings: Dettagli, Dettagli, Dettagli

Audition readings will be in both English and Italian (characters that speak Italian).

HAVE NO FEAR!!! YOU NEED NOT BE A FLUENT ITALIAN SPEAKER. I'm trying to get an idea is you have an acuity for the language.

An ITALIAN DIALECT COACH will be working with the cast throughout the rehearsal period.

The script and music is available at Riverwalk Theatre.
