Post Just auditioned for Freddie...
Hello all;

I just had the opportunity to audition for Freddie in a local community theatre production of Chess coming up in May. I wasn't familiar with Chess before this opportunity came up but I have to say the show has really captured me in a lot of ways. I was excited to find so much great information and history about the show on this forum!

The possibility of playing this role is exciting and challenging for me - I'm a classically-trained, "legit" tenor with fairly limited pop/rock experience. I have the opposite problem of most men auditioning for this role in community theatre: I have the range but the style is relatively new to me. I played Freddy in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels last year - how about that, another brash, boisterous American a-hole named Freddy! - and that's about as "pop" as I've had the chance to get (admittedly not very).

Hoping it ends up working out for me, I'd love the chance to do this role!

Past musical roles:
Dickon, The Secret Garden
Josh Baskin, Big: The Musical
Freddy, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Franz/Dennis, Sunday in the Park with George
Frederic, The Pirates of Penzance
Historian/others, Spamalot

Up next:
