Re: Singing - You do not need to be a "trained singer" or have a "trained sound" for this show.  In fact it's discouraged.  Yes, you have to sing well in order to be in a musical, but the show is about a working class group of miners that really struggle to stand up for their beliefs and rights..... to play those characters accurately, they wouldn't have a lot of vibrato for example.  Plain and simple.  That's the show.... Regular, down to earth people.  


BILLY - If you are choosing to audition for Billy, you must be a strong dancer. The entire show is based around him studying at a ballet school and becoming a very good dancer in a time when it would have been greatly discouraged for a boy to do so.  Please only select that audition piece if you know you are quite a strong dancer and can hit the notes.  *Males with changed voices can sing it down the octave.


MICHAEL - Michael also needs to be a good dancer, but not to the same capacity as  Billy.  *Males with changed voices can sing it down the octave
