EMT announces Fringe auditions!


Edinburgh Music Theatre Company is looking for talented, hardworking performers to take part in its 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival Fringe productions!

Following on previous sellout successes in 2014 & 2015, EMT will be producing back-to-back concerts ‘Fringe Fantasmic: Heroes and Villains’ & ‘Pop Goes the Musical – Anthems’.  Director – Kenneth Pinkerton; Musical Director – Paul Gudgin and Choreographer Sarah Aitken.

Performances will take place on Wednesday 10th, Thursday 11th & Friday 12th August at 7:10 pm and 8:40 pm at St Andrew’s & St George’s West Church, George Street, Edinburgh.

Auditions will be held on Saturday 30th April 2016 and Wednesday 4th May 2016 at Barclay Church, 1 Wright’s Houses, Edinburgh, EH10 4HR.  You must register for an audition by emailing edinburghmusictheatre@live.com specifying whether you wish to be considered for the ensemble or as a soloist or featured singer. If you are unable to make either of these dates please do still get in touch and we will do our best to accommodate you. 

Auditions for performers who wish to be considered as a soloist, or as a featured singer will take place between 12:00 noon and 5pm on Saturday 30th April and on Wednesday 4th May between 7:00pm and 10pm.  A list of preferred songs will be circulated with music prior to the audition dates and there will be an accompanist at the auditions. If after your audition you are not selected for a solo or featured song this does not necessarily mean you won’t be in the show. You may still be invited to perform with the company in the ensemble.

Auditions for performers who wish to be considered only for the Ensemble will take place at 10:00 am on Saturday 30th April.  The Musical Director will go over a song with the group and you will then be asked to sing a part on your own.

Rehearsals will take place each Wednesday from 18th May until 3rd August 2016.  You should also be free to attend rehearsals on Saturday 30th July and 6th August (morning and afternoons), Sunday 7th August (evening) and Tuesday 9th August.

If you are successful in your audition and you are invited to join the company there will be a participation fee and a requirement that you sell a quota of tickets. 

Please note that we have a lower age limit of 16 years old, but no upper limit.

We look forward to hearing from you!
