BE PREPARED to:
Sing one (1) 32-bar excerpt (no more than two minutes total) of classical musical theatre repertoire that suits your vocal range (no Pop/Hip-Hop/Rap musicals, please). The Singers Musical Theatre Anthology is a great resource to help you select a song for your audition, and are available online or at most libraries.
Perform a one-minute comedic or dramatic monologue from a published play, not a musical. No monologues by D.M. Larsen, please.
Perform a cold reading from a monologue selected by the audition committee (no home preparation required)
Learn and perform a choreographed dance routine (no home preparation required).
Write 1-2 pages about your audition experience
Participate in a short interview
jazz shoes, dance or unrestrictive clothing
current photo with your name written on the back (small snapshot, school picture, or headshot)
copy of your music for the accompanist
Not permitted: recorded music, self-accompaniment, a cappella presentations, or outside accompanists or coaches.
Before you begin your song and monologue, introduce yourself and tell us what you’ll be performing.
“Hello my name is _________ and I will be singing _____ from ______. For my second piece, I will be performing _____ from _______.”
Before your monologue:
“I will now be doing a monologue from the play _______ by _______. My character’s name is______.”
