Audition Process

Be Prepared 

1. Bring a headshot (photograph of yourself) and a filled-out audition form.

2. Know the production you are auditioning for. 

3. Come prepared with a song in your vocal range for a musical and a monologue for a play. 

 

 

MUSICAL AUDITION

1. Vocal audition: this is a preselected song you have prepared for the audition. You will sing individually and possibly be asked to sing a few bars or be tasked with matching pitch. 

2. Dance audition- If the musical consist of heavy dancing, we will gold dance auditions. The choreographer will teach a short dance. You will learn this in groups and then perform it in groups. We recommend wearing movable clothing and jazz or ballet shoes for the dance portion. Flexible sneakers are also acceptable. 

3. Acting audition will be preselected audition slides from the show. You will have a few minutes to rehearse the side. You will then be called up to audition with different actors to see who best fits which roles. These are usually conducted at callbacks. 

 

PLAY AUDITION 

1. Acting audition- If specified, you will perform a preselected 45-60 second monologue. It would help if you had this monologue prepared well in advance and memorized. If not specified, you will be reading exerts from the script.  

2. Callbacks- these are preselected scenes from the current production that you will be reading from. You will have a few minutes to rehearse the side. You will then be called to audition with different actors to see who best fits which roles.

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 

1. How many students will you cast? 

This is always dependent upon how many students audition but we hope for our musicals to cast 25-30 students and for any of our plays we will cast according to how many the script asks for. 

2. What kind of commitment is required? 

The way we determine commitment is by the role you receive. You will only be required to attend rehearsals in which you are actually in a scene, song or dance. You will never be asked to attend a rehearsal if you are not in the part we are rehearsing. 

3. What are the directors looking for?

We are looking for students who are easy to work with who best suit the show. We are also looking for students who take direction well but are unafraid to take risks.
