Phantom of the Opera Audition Form
This Form is for Beacon Players who are auditioning for the Spring Musical “Phantom of the Opera”
Based on the 1910 horror novel by Gaston Leroux
The Phantom of the Opera is a thrilling and romantic account of the legendary Phantom, a musical genius who dwells deep beneath a majestic opera house in Paris. Shunned by society for his horrible facial deformity, he takes a promising young soprano, Christine, under his wing and grooms her for operatic fame, all the while falling deeply in love with her.
As Christine grows ever more successful, and a handsome young man from her past begins to successfully court her, the Phantom descends into a jealous rage and terrorizes the opera company with increasingly dangerous threats.
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s score soars with such famous tunes as ‘Think of Me,’ ‘All I Ask of You,’ ‘The Music of the Night,’ and the title song, ‘The Phantom of the Opera,’ and Phantom has gone on to become a cultural tour de force, and one of the most successful musicals of all time.

List of Roles
The Phantom of the Opera
The Phantom is masked to hide a facial deformity. He lives hidden beneath the Paris Opera House. He is a musical genius who falls in love with the young ingénue Christine who he gives music lessons through a mirror in her dressing room. He torments the diva Carlotta and the whole opera company. His teaching helps Christine to be promoted to a lead in the Opera’s productions. The Phantom is dynamic but mesmerizing, sensual but ghostly.
Audition song: Angel Excerpt, Music of the Night (Full Version)
Christine is the young ingénue. She begins as dancer, but as she has been taught by the Phantom she is given the chance to sing and becomes the star of the Opera. As was a young child she met a young boy, Raoul, and when they meet again at the opera they fall in love. Christine is best friends with Meg. Christine is young and vulnerable after the loss of her musician father.
Audition song: Think of Me, Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again.
Vicomte Raoul de Chagny
Raoul is the dashing, young lover. He knew Christine from her childhood and becomes smitten with her when they meet again. He is the rich patron of The Opera Company. He does his best to protect Christine, ending in a confrontation with The Phantom.
Audition song: All I Ask of You.
Madame Giry is the box keeper of the Opera and the ballet instructor. She is loyal to the Phantom and even displays fondness for him, as he leaves her gifts and promises to help her daughter succeed if Madame Giry obeys him. At one point, she is fired by the managers of the Opera, but she regains her position after the Phantom intervenes. While a darkness and mystery clouds her character, she cares deeply for those around her.
Audition song:Prima Donna”, “Masquerade”, “Backstage”, “Notes II”
(see also Ballet Chorus information)
Meg is the young lead dancer in the corps de ballet. She is Christine’s best friend and it is she who volunteers Christine to sing when Carlotta quits the production. Her mother is the ballet mistress.
Audition song: Where in the World.
Monsieur Gilles André
Andre is one of two new managers of the Paris Opera. He is more
sarcastic and worried about putting on a show. The Phantom to him is just a nuisance and he seems bothered by the drama that happens with Carlotta, Raoul, Christine, and everyone else.
Audition song: Managers’ Scene.
Firmin is the other new manager. He is serious and more worried about money and the business of the opera. He sees the Phantom and all the drama that surrounds the opera house as publicity.
Audition song: Managers’ Scene.
Carlotta is the resident Opera Diva who plays all the leading roles. With Christine’s rising stardom her job is in jeopardy. Carlotta quits the production of Hannibal after the Phantom nearly hits her with a backdrop. She comes back to hear the managers beg for her to do the production of Il Muto. Carlotta is a true “drama queen” who feels threatened by Christine
Audition song: Hannibal Cadenza, Manager’s Scene (Prima Dona)
Piangi is a classical opera singer with a really thick Italian accent. He is Carlotta’s counterpart and a diva in his own right. Think Pavarotti!
Audition song: Don Juan (also sing the Passarino parts in this song).
ENSEMBLE (Speaking and sung roles)
Buquet is an old stage hand. People think he’s strange because he claims to have seen the Phantom. He sings a song to the ballet girls describing how the Phantom looks. He is eventually killed by The Phantom.
Audition song: Excerpt #1, Excerpt #2, Masquerade.
Don Attilio – in ‘Il Muto’
Don Attilio is the Countess’s husband during the Il Muto performance. Some actors hold the word “her” for comedic purposes.
Audition song: Masquerade.
Passarino (in Don Juan Triumphant)
Passarino is Don Juan’s sidekick. He lures Aminta to Don Juan.
Audition song: Masquerade.
Monsieur Reyer is the répétiteur of the Opera Company. His main job is to run the rehearsals despite all divas. He is sarcastic and sort of a tyrant.
ENSEMBLE (Speaking only roles)
The Auctioneer begins the show auctioning pieces from the opera house, including props, posters, and the infamous chandelier. This is set in 1911, then takes us back to when the rest of the story takes place.
The Auctioneer is a speaking character with the longest monologue in the show.
Monsieur Lefevre is the retiring manager of the Opera House. Even though we know why he decides to retire he is very certain not to mention it to the new managers. He leaves for Frankfurt and has no intention on returning.
Adult. Spoken role
He is in charge of security during the Don Juan première. He blows the whistle and does the final sealing of the doors.
The Fireman says one word, “Sir”. They enter with the fire chief and just stand there with their metal helmets
The Marksman is the guy who shoots the gun from the pit.
ENSEMBLE (Non-speaking Roles)
The Princess stands in the background during the Hannibal scene. Audition song: Masquerade.
Madame Firmin is married to Monsieur Firmin. She is one of those great one word characters. Her word “Greedy”.
There’s an Inkeeper apparently, and he has a wife!
There’s a Spanish lady too, but you won’t have to speak.
Some ballet training essential. Pointe shoes a bonus but not essential. Singing not necessary but an advantage.
1 Male. 18+
Strong, athletic, masculine. Strong pirouettes, tours and leaps. Singing not necessary but an advantage.
All ladies auditioning for the role of Meg must also attend dance class for some ballet training, if no dance experience. Meg is a strong triple threat role. Pointe not necessary but an advantage.
All people auditioning for ensemble roles or ensemble need to sing ‘Masquerade’. Please choose the part appropriate to your voice – if unsure, listen to the tracks provided on line and sing the part most comfortable for your vocal range.
