CAST:

Calling Singers, Dancers, Actors in Grades 8 – 12 -- serious performers willing to work as part of a team to share their talents, refine their skills, and create a high quality show.  Performers of all ethnic and racial backgrounds are encouraged to attend.  Please consider your commitment to the show prior to your audition, as we obviously can’t promise lead roles to everyone.  Every role, ensemble included, will be exciting and fun, as well as a valuable experience.

 

PREPARE:

• Prepare 32 bars from two contrasting musical theater songs (one up-tempo, one ballad) that showcase your

   vocal range and demonstrate your ability to show character through song.  Please do not choose songs from

   this show.

• How to prepare your accompaniment music for auditions:  If copied, hole-punch the music and put in a

   binder.  The music should be on the front and back of each page.  If only printed on one side, tape the pages

   together so they are back-to-back or put them back to back in a non-glare sleeve.  If music is bound, it

   should lay flat when open.

• You will be asked to read a scene — no preparation needed.

 

BRING:

• A headshot which will not be returned

• A resume, if available

• Shoes and appropriate clothes to dance in (no flip flops, crocs, etc.) — you will be taught a short dance

   combination to be performed in a group.

• Sheet music (not CD’s) in a binder for your audition song in the the key in which you will sing (sheet

   music is available in local music stores and online — www.sheetmusicplus.com or 

   www.musicnotes.com for example).  An accompanist will be provided (“a cappella” audition songs will

   not be accepted).

• If you have questions about what to prepare or what to expect at the audition, don’t hesitate to email

   or call us.
