What remains when civilization has crumbled? Stories. Act 1 takes place around a campfire with survivors of an apocalyptic nuclear disaster trying to pass the time by remembering all the details of an episode of The Simpsons. Act 2 is 7 years later at a rehearsal when the survivors have formed a theater troupe that performs Simpsons episodes. Act 3 is 75 years after that at a performance that uses the characters and loose plot of the episode from Act 1 to tell a sort of origin story for their society with the nuclear disaster.
Please prepare a 1-minute contemporary monologue.
Act 3 is entirely sung through. The music is not too technically difficult, but singing will be key.
Choose one of the following songs to sing and learn whichever voice part is more comfortable in your voice, including the harmonies. Then sing with the youtube video below that has the part you did NOT learn. At the audition, be prepared to sing in harmony with the youtube video, as well as learn and repeat different rhythm patterns back to the music director.
