About This Musical

The 2018 Illinois High School Theatre Festival All-State production of Big Fish will celebrate the festival theme “The Power of Transformation” as it weaves between the fantasy of Edward Bloom’s tales to his son, Will, and the reality of his mortality. Actors, singers, and dancers in this show will have to show their ability to navigate large musical numbers while still revealing the heart of the over-the-top characters.


“Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film directed by Tim Burton, BIG FISH centers on Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest… and then some! Edward’s incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him – most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales. Overflowing with heart, humor and spectacular stagecraft, BIG FISH is an extraordinary new Broadway musical that reminds us why we love going to the theatre – for an experience that’s richer, funnier and BIGGER than life itself.” (Theatrical Rights Worldwide)

*Please Note: Audition applications are processed in the order in which they are received. While we will do our best to accommodate your audition location request, you may be assigned to another location if all slots are filled.

Actor Audition Tips & Guidelines

The auditions will consist of three components: your story, your song, and your dance audition. 

  • Story/Monologue: We will hear you tell a 60-90 second tall tale or folktale. We encourage you to find and perform a story that best reflects the acting you want to show us for the part for which you are auditioning. There are funny, scary, and even insightful folk and tall tales. You can find your own American or international folktale or tall tale, or you can find one here:  http://www.americanfolklore.net/sindex.html

  • Song Selection: We will be hearing you sing a selection from Big Fish. Click to download a packet of musical selections HERE

  • Dance Audition:  We will watch you perform your dance in groups during your audition slot.  You will not be taught the dance at the audition site, you must come having learned it.  You can find a video of the audition dance HERE.  If you are submitting an online application, you must include a video of you performing this dance combination.

  • Tap Audition:  If you would like to be considered for one of our featured tap dancers, please prepare a 2 minute video where you show us your best tap moves to music.  You should include some or all of the following steps:  pull backs,  wings, syncopated pull backs, paradiddles, cramp rolls, toe stands, double & triple turns, Maxie Fords, and shiggy bops. 

  • Silks/Lyra Audition:  If you would like to be considered for one of our aerialist performers, you must submit a 1-3 minute video link that shows us your most practiced and advanced tricks and sequences on silks and/or a lyra.   This video must include you getting into and out of each movement as well as climbing.   This must be a new video made for this audition. If you have experience on other apparatuses that help show your strengths, feel free to include.  You can also show us your tumbling skills, especially those featuring upper body strength to be considered if you don’t have access to silks or a lyra.  

 

Those students who are called back should prepare the callback music, which will be emailed directly. A list will also be posted at www.illinoistheatrefest.org. Check your email on Monday, June 5th.  Everyone who auditions will be contacted by that day.

 

Here are some tips for preparing your audition:

 

  • Select the song that you feel best shows off your voice. Big Fish calls for big voices and we are looking for strong singers who can demonstrate acting through song. You will only sing one selection at the initial audition, so consult with your choir teacher and/or vocal coach to determine your best song choice. Memorize your song so you can give your most compelling performance.

  • Memorize your tall tale/folk tale! You are more likely to give your best performance when we can see your eyes and connect with your words.  You need to demonstrate your ability to weave a story and capture our interest and attention.

  • As for attire, you should dress your best, rather than trying to dress the part. Keep in mind that the clothes you wear can make a statement, but they should not take the focus away from your performance. The audition is meant to showcase you and your abilities.

  • The accompanist will be familiar with all of the audition cuttings, so relax! Take a deep breath and just try to do your best.

  • Remember, your audition begins the moment you walk in the door, so be sure to treat everyone with courtesy and respect.

 

Again, if you have any questions, please contact the producers at allstateproducers@ihstf.org.

Technician Interview Tips and Guidelines

INTERVIEW EXPECTATIONS FOR TECHNICIANS

  • Be prepared to discuss what technical theatre work you have done.

  • Bring a portfolio to show examples of projects you’ve worked on.

  • Be able to explain your areas of greatest interest.

  • You will be interviewed for approximately seven (7) minutes.


MATERIALS TO BRING TO THE INTERVIEW (PORTFOLIO)

We are looking for examples of your work. This can be in the form of paperwork, actual props/costumes (if available) and photos. More specific possibilities below include:


  • Show books including marked scripts, cue sheets, prop lists, etc.

  • Light plots and sections, channel hookups, instrument schedules

  • Microphone plots, selected recordings (if available)

  • Draftings, drawings, sketches (napkin sketches count!)

  • Paint samples, built props (if available)

  • Examples of types of sewing stitches you are able to create

  • PHOTOS OF YOUR WORK! Try to include process shots as well as the final product.

  • Include captions detailing your contributions to each project.

  • Please do not bring in medium to large scale items that are awkward to carry.  Clear photos are sufficient.

  • Résumé. This should include your name, contact information and a list of shows for which you have worked. For each show include the play title, producing company (your high school in most cases), your job title, the year of the show, and the director or designer with whom you worked.


Students interested in a Stage Management position must provide a letter of recommendation from someone he or she has Stage Managed for and should bring a Prompt Book or Rehearsal Book to the interview.


These materials may be printed on paper and bound or placed in a binder. Alternately, you may bring actual objects or digitally formatted work. For digital portfolios we require that you bring your own laptop or other viewing source.  Internet connectivity will be available, but having your portfolio on a flashdrive is much more reliable.


WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT THE INTERVIEW?

The purpose of any interview is for your interviewer to get to know you. Who are you? What are you passionate about? What are your goals? You will be asked multiple types of questions:


Basic questions about yourself:

How would you describe your work style?

What are your strengths/weaknesses?


Behavioral questions:

Give me an example of a time that you felt you went above and beyond what was asked of you.

Once you have completed a task, what do you do?


Open-ended questions:

Why should you be considered for a crew position for Big Fish?

Why do you want to be a part of the All-State crew?


Throughout the interview your résumé and portfolio will be assessed by the interviewer(s). Be prepared to answer specific questions about each show, the process, the people with whom you worked and the final product.


HOW SHOULD I PREPARE?  

Remember, the purpose of the interview is to introduce yourself in the best possible way. Since all students are being interviewed for general technicians, your résumé should describe your technical experience in any and all areas. Your area strengths will become evident in your portfolio and in the way you talk about your work.  Be confident that you are the best candidate for the position of technician, and let your experience back you up. We suggest practice interviewing with a partner. Typically this works best with someone you don’t know very well rather than your best friend, as they probably already know the answers to the questions!


WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

For any interview you should always dress your best. Keep in mind that the clothes you wear say something about you, but be sure they do not take center stage. The interview is to showcase YOU and your abilities. Your attire is the supporting role.
