Preparing for auditions:

  • All performers, 15 years old and up, are welcome to audition for this show
  • Audition times are first come, first serve
  • Please bring a printed head shot, any snapshot will do
  • You will be asked to complete an audition form to capture your previous experience. Feel free to bring a resume and come prepared with all of your rehearsal conflicts (Jan-Feb). 
  • Prepare a 90 second song cut (the song does not need to be from a musical). If you choose to sing a prepared song you must bring the sheet music with you and have it in the key in which you will sing it. Please have it marked from the measure where you will begin and the measure you will end. An accompanist will be provided. Do not bring recorded music.
  • The artistic staff will be looking for you to engage and entertain, communicate emotion through the song, as well as demonstrate your musicality (consistent pitch, rhythm, vocal range, quality of tone, ability to effectively vary dynamics, etc.).
