Abstract:

"Rock musicals are an increasingly dominant force in contemporary musical theatre. Rock the Audition defines what is required of the actor-singer to succeed in the audition room and gives the aspiring performer the tools necessary to interpret rock material with abandon, creativity, and inspiration. This book shows those interested in auditioning for a rock musical how to holistically embody the essence of the show for which they are auditioning. Rock the Audition teaches performers how to: pick songs that have or have room to create a dramatic arc; create their own appropriate cuts and arrangements, and successfully communicate the feel of a song to a pianist for proper support; capture the essence of the musical they're trying out for; understand the vocal styles of different genres and how the styles changed over time; act a rock song Sanders's method also helps singing actors refine their physical life in the audition room when singing a rock song, an approach profoundly different from that of the legit musical-theatre auditioner. Rock the Audition shows readers how to interpret the meaning of the chosen songs and how to bring their own unique point of view to those interpretations."--Publisher's description.
