Back to Roles, Available Roles

A show is not a show without someone to perform it. There are four areas of performance in the Science Revue. For these roles, auditions will be held in semester one, so keep your eye out for notifications.

Actors

If you want to act in the revue, be sure to come to our acting workshops and auditions. Keep an eye on the news page, or email the head directors at directors@sciencerevue.org for details.

The actors in the Science Revue form the basis of the cast. Acting rehearsals will begin in semester one with acting workshops and improvisation techniques, and move into rehearsals as the show approaches. Casting decisions are made by the directors, and often it is your performance and level of commitment in rehearsals which will determine your roles.

Singers

If you want to sing in the revue, be sure to come to our workshops and auditions. Keep an eye on the news page, or email the singing directors at singing@sciencerevue.org for details.

Singers for solos and small singing numbers are chosen by the singing director(s) in consultation with the directors. The songs vary but usually include at least the opening and closing numbers plus a couple more. In addition there is usually a choral number in which the singers usually form the bulk of the choir. Rehearsals will be run by the singing director as required.

Dancers

If you want to dance in the revue, be sure to come to our workshops and auditions. Keep an eye on the news page, or email the dance director at dance@sciencerevue.org for details.

All dancers usually perform in the opening and closing numbers, and there are often a couple of other numbers which require dancers. It can depend on the show as to what level of skill is required for each dance but casting for dance numbers is often done on the basis of availability and commitment rather than experience. Rehearsals are run by the choreographers to backing music at first, and later with the band and singers as required.

Musicians

If you want to play in the revue band, be sure to book an appointment for an audition in first semester. Email the band director at band@sciencerevue.org to do so.

The Science Revue band has always been one of our major drawcards and we’d like to keep that tradition. In the past the band has leaned towards a jazz feel, with drums, keyboard, guitars and brass. Contact the band director if you are interested in playing for us.
