Name: Dena Civello & Gary Ducoing
What is your current project?
Narrator & Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?
We are performing Joseph at Maggie’s Little Theatre in Middle Village. It’s a great fit for the production because it’s a family show – it’s upbeat – and it has a fantastic ensemble that has many opportunities on stage whether they’re singers, dancers or both!
What’s next for you?
Dena – Co-Production Coordinator for Royal Star Theatre’s Young Frankenstein
What is the name of the last show you saw?
Gary: Something’s Afoot
Dena: Little Women the Musical
Any advice for your peers?
Gary: Preparation is key – especially for auditions. Prepare a piece that suits you and be honest with yourself. Don’t try to sing something that isn’t right for your voice or that you aren’t 100% comfortable with.
Dena: Work with different directors, musical directors, and choreographers. What one sees in you may not be what another one does. In addition, everyone works differently. Use what you learn to your advantage for the next experience.
