Please prepare 32 bars of music in the style of the show. Music from the show is neither recommended nor necessary at this time as it is with the best of intentions that we make our auditions as objective as possible. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation. We will also have a dance audition so make sure to wear clothing you can move in.
An accompanist will be provided. Please provide piano sheet music for our accompanist. NO acappella auditions will be allowed. If needed, you can email an audio file with NO background vocals to email@example.com and we will have it loaded and prepared for your chosen audition date. In the subject line: (Insert name) audition track. You may also be asked to sing scales by the Music Director
Please be prepared to fill out a conflict sheet at auditions (be as specific as possible about conflicts.) Please make sure you can fully commit to the rehearsal and performance schedules before auditioning. We would prefer to know your crazy scheduling issues now and are willing to work with you but will recast you if you are not honest about your availability during the audition process.
This is my first audition, any advice?
It's easy (and very normal) to become nervous about auditioning, especially if it's your first time. Relax! You're going to be great. The most important thing is to just have fun ... that's why we're all here, right?!
What should I prepare?
Most of our auditions will include cold reading from the script. There will be select scenes from the play that the director may ask you to read from. You will be given time to look over them before you step into the limelight! Musicals require a prepared song (usually about 16 bars). Special requirements will be posted in the audition notice.
Should I come both days?
Most of our shows will have two days of regular auditions. You only need to come for one day. We hold two rounds of auditions with the hope that at least one of the days will work with everyone's schedule. If it does not, use the audition line to contact the director and make other arrangements.
What should I wear?
Always wear comfortable clothing that you can move well in, and please wear closed-toe shoes. Special requirements for dance will be noted in the audition notice.
I was cast in the show. Now What?
Congratulations! Being in a show is one of the most fun and rewarding things to do, we hope you have a blast. Make sure you check your email often, we will be in touch soon with rehearsal and performance schedules. If your email address changes, let us know immediately.
I wasn't cast this time. Now what?
Auditioning for any show is always a great experience, regardless of whether you make it or not! Keep up the good work. If you are still looking for ways to get involved, check out the show pages, there are volunteer opportunities posted and opportunities to help out in the front of house.
