Audition Requirements

Please note that FRC produces shows on a volunteer, recreational basis, and does not financially compensate participants except for pre-approved show-related expenses.

If you have played for an FRC show previously:

  • Please sign up for a time and submit a 1-2 page resume. Indicate if you would prefer to play for the panel or have them review your FRC performance history.


  • At your scheduled time the Musical Director will meet with you to discuss your experience and suitability for the show.


If you have not played for an FRC show previously:
  • Please sign up for a time and submit a 1-2 page resume. You will be provided music to prepare in advance of your scheduled time. Different shows require different styles, so please come prepared to play a piece in each style that you are comfortable with.

  • Percussionists will be asked to submit a video in advance rather than bringing your kit to the audition.

About the Show

This cult favourite musical (penned by the beloved mouse-eared team of Ashman and Menken) has fuelled the imaginations of Broadway and Hollywood audiences for more than thirty years.

Looks like you're not happy unless I open a vein. I'll give you a few drops if that'll appease. Now please - oh please - grow for me!


Timid and tragic Seymour Krelborn can�t catch a break. Life is tough in Skid Row, especially for a poor, orphaned florist who is hopelessly in love with his unattainable co-worker, the lovely but na�ve Audrey. That is until a mysterious plant appears, changing his fortunes forever. Set to a score of Rock & Roll, Motown, and Doo-Wop, this black comedy is deliciously disturbing, thrillingly theatrical, and horrifically hilarious� you won�t want to miss it.

If you wanna be profound, if you really gotta justify, take a breath and look around, a lot of folks deserve to die.
