Winner of four 2000 Tony Awards, Elton John and Tim Rice's Aida is an epic tale of love, loyalty and betrayal, chronicling the love triangle between Aida, a Nubian princess stolen from her country, Amneris, an Egyptian princess, and Radames, the soldier they both love.
An enslaved Nubian princess, Aida, finds her heart entangled with Radames, an Egyptian soldier who is betrothed to the Pharaoh's daughter, Amneris. As their forbidden love blossoms, Aida is forced to weigh her heart against the responsibility that she faces as the leader of her people. Aida and Radames' love for one another becomes a shining example of true devotion that ultimately transcends the vast cultural differences between their warring nations, heralding a time of unprecedented peace and prosperity.
Cast members will spend each rehearsal day learning songs, choreography and dialogue to perform the entire musical at the end of only 2 weeks! All participants will audition for their role before the intensive begins so they can get a jump-start on memorization! As an intensive, students will help design and collect props, costumes, and sets and be a part of the whole process from beginning to end!
Please bring 16 measures of a musical theatre song for auditions. Accompanist provided. Karaoke CD or Sheet Music is allowed (no a cappella auditions please). Please wear clothes and shoes you feel comfortable moving in.
