Post Urchin question
I'm probably auditioning for a more professional company this month, and I'd love to be one of the urchins- I can belt and I love the whole Greek chorus thing.. :] The character description put out by the company though, says that they are black. So, my question would be: In a predominantly white community (my school has about 3 colored kids attending out of about.. 1500. that should give you a bit of an idea) should I go for it anyway? And if so, do you think I would have much of a chance, being 16, and white? :wink:

Go for it. The worst that happens is you don't get it.

The last production of LSOH that I did had one black, one hispanic and one white urchin. What got them cast? Amazing, rocking voices and good acting skills. (The kind of acting you do without lines- projecting attitude while just standing.)

The reason they are black is because the characters names are the names of three black pop trio's from the 60's.
