Reading Audition: Review the Audition Sides for the role(s) you are interesed in. You do not need to memorize, but preparing ahead will go along way towards a quality audition.
Vocal Audition: Prepare 16-32 bars of a Broadway, rock, or pop song in the style(s) of the show (30-60 seconds). A song from the show IS acceptable. If you prefer not to choose your own audition number, please prepare this short section of Voulez, Vous. An accompanist will be provided. Please provide piano sheet music for our accompanist.
Dance Audition: Everyone will be asked to do a very short dance routine (30 seconds) so wear appropriate clothing and shoes. A video will be posted online two weeks before auditions. You are strongly encouraged to watch and learn the basics. Dance experience is a plus but not a necessity.
