crowns-websitemobile-768x512

McCarter is looking for non-union gospel singers to perform with the professional cast of Crowns! Rehearsals have begun for Crowns, March 13 – April 1, 2018, a play by Regina Taylor with music based on a book of photographs and stories of African American women in their church hats celebrating faith, fashion, and family. This production will include a featured moment for a soloist from the local community on certain nights.

  • We will be casting between 2 and 6 local African American women who will each sing at multiple performances of Crowns.
  • Singers will perform a portion of “How I Got Over” as a solo and then the professional cast will join them for the rest of the song.
  • Singers must be willing/comfortable to sing in front of an audience of a thousand people.
  • Singers must be over the age of 18; there is no upper age limit.
Come try out!

When: Sunday, February 25, 2018, 4pm-6pm (in 4 minute scheduled slots)

Where: McCarter Theatre Center, 91 University Place Princeton NJ

How: Come prepared to sing the first verse of “How I Got Over”

Auditions will be brief, 4 minute slots in a warm and friendly environment. To schedule your audition, please contact Emily Ultan at casting@mccarter.org.
