Also, we do not offer housing/transportation for out of town actors.
For Gentleman’s Guide submissions, you must use one of our vocal sides in your video, along with a song of your own (in the style of the show). NO A CAPELLA. Sides can be found further down, below the “What to Prepare” section on this page during the audition period.

WHAT TO PREPARE:
The style of the score is completely legit; a hybrid between CANDIDE, NIGHT MUSIC and Gilbert and Sullivan.
NOTE: This is a high style, English romantic farce, set in the Edwardian era. The piece requires trained actors who sing beautifully and have GREAT COMIC SKILLS. All roles are similar stylistically to characters in Oscar Wilde plays. ENGLISH ACCENTS REQUIRED FOR ALL ROLES.
Please sing 16 bars of something in the style of the show that best shows range and acting ability. Absolutely NO contemporary. Bring sheet music in correct key. A score will be provided if singing from the show. Please bring headshot and resume STAPLED together. Accompanist will be provided. NO a capella!
SIDES: Here is a link to some of the vocal sides being used for auditions https://www.dropbox.com/sh/wp01p5xfkyd0uf9/AAA5yXdPcdQ7rmPYE8SE-jeMa?dl=0.
If you are auditioning at the EPA or Open Call, you are more than welcome to sing your own song or use one of the vocal sides instead. We would love for you to prepare one of the vocal sides if you can (it is not mandatory). We want you to put your best foot forward so if you’re not able to learn the side by the preliminary auditions, please don’t stress about it and just sing something of your own!
GGLAM CHARACTER BREAKDOWN
PLEASE NOTE: Costumes from the tour package will be used. So, actors will need to be close to the sizes of those from the tour (i.e. we must cast “traditional/average” sizes).

MONTY NAVARRO (Male to play mid 20s – 30s) Handsome and effortlessly charming, clever and charismatic, vulnerable and endearing, with a highly developed appreciation for life’s ironies.
