Patrick McDonald, SDPAC’s Musical Theatre Director will be directing “Disney’s Frozen JR.” He has been involved with concert production and community theatre for 34 years. He has performed in, produced, and directed productions in Birmingham, AL, Pulaski, TN, Savannah, GA, Sylacauga, AL, and Prattville, AL. Locally, Patrick’s credits with the Sylacauga Community Playhouse include The Addams Family Musical (Uncle Fester), Too Soon for Daisies (Paul Vanderbloom/Dr. Joh Hunter), Inside the Box: An Evening from the Golden Age of Radio (Director), Tarzan, The Stage Musical (Co-Director), Disney’s Aladdin JR (Music Director), Little Shop of Horrors (Director), and The Secret Garden (Director).

Specific Audition Information:

  •  Auditions are open for ages 10-18 only.
  •  Students younger than age 10 who are enrolled in SDPAC Musical Theatre I will be allowed to audition. This will be the only age exception granted.

What to prepare:

  •  Actors will need to prepare a song of 60-90 seconds to sing for the audition. This song must be performed with a musical track brought with the actor (preferably without background vocals). This can be a cd (not DVD) or an mp3 on a phone or other playback device that can connect with an AUX cable (not a jump or flash drive).
  •  Actors will be expected to perform a cold-reading from the script.
  • Actors may prepare a 60-second monologue to be performed. This is highly recommended for actors interested in lead roles – that is, roles with a name (like “Elsa”).
  • Actors will, in the course of the evaluation, be taught a simple group dance, and will need to be prepared to perform it during the audition. Wear appropriate footwear (not high heels). Dance shoes (ballet, flats, jazz, etc.) will be fine. Make sure the actor can move easily in the clothes they wear.
  •  If the actor has one, they may bring an acting/ performance resume (not an employment resume) and a head shot. All actors auditioning will be photographed as part of the registration process to assist the casting decisions (i.e. remembering names, etc.).
  • Actors must register online by clicking here or visiting the Southern Dance and Performing Arts Company webite, for a time slot due to social-distancing and traffic needs for the auditions. Masks must be worn when actors are in common areas, but will not be worn during the audition.
  • Parents and others accompanying the actors will not be allowed in the audition room for any audition. The actors will be auditioned in groups.
