FOR PERFORMERS:

AUDITIONS SHOULD NOT EXCEED THREE MINUTES. Performers, please prepare a cut of a contemporary musical theatre song and a short speech or monologue (extremely young children can recite a poem or tell a joke). Singing auditions will be a capella (no accompaniment). Pop songs are allowed, but keep in mind that we are looking for songs that tell a story and can show your voice and acting. You can sing a song from the show if you like, but it is not required. If the audition goes beyond three minutes, we may cut you off – please don’t be offended. We are just trying to give everyone a fair chance.
