SINGERS WANTED

Do you love Christmas? Singing in harmony? Getting paid? We're looking for good people to join us.

Auditions are coming up for The Dickens Carolers! Our Victorian-costumed, a cappella, SATB caroling quartets have been performing throughout the Puget Sound since 1978. With a typical cast of 45 - 50 singers, we are the largest and longest-running caroling organization in the Northwest. If you haven't seen us yet, check us out on CBS Sunday Morning. (http://www.dickenscarolers.com/press/2014cbs)

We re-audition the full cast every year, and usually cast 10 - 15 new carolers. Choral and/or a cappella experience helps, but isn't required. As is often the case in the performing arts, we generally see more women applicants, so men are always encouraged to audition. Our goal is to reflect our broader community, so we encourage applicants of all ages, ethnicities, religions and orientations. It doesn't matter if you're an experienced pro or an eager amateur, we just want to find talented people to join us in sharing goodwill to all.

Auditions are held in early August, and rehearsals September through November (every Sunday evening plus one more TBD), then you perform from Thanksgiving through Christmas.

If cast, you set your schedule (in advance), and we do our best to fill it with gigs. Carolers make $25 - 35/hr, and their availability largely determines their number of performance hours. A caroler cast into a full-time quartet makes about $1,750 - 2,500 for the season. Part-time (evenings and weekends) makes about $1,000 - 1,500. Weekend-only (Fri evening to Sun evening) makes about $500 - 1,000.

Visit our auditions page (http://www.dickenscarolers.com/auditions) for more info and if you're interested, submit your name at the bottom of the page for an audition appointment. Or if you have other questions, feel free to call us at 206-320-7007.
