WHAT TO BRING
Please bring a headshot and resumé. Please make sure your headshot is attached to the resume so that all we need is to flip it over to see the other side (i.e. like printing double sided). Your resumé should be formatted like an actor resumé, listing what shows you have been in. You will also need to provide sheet music for the accompanist (see below for details). Lastly, we suggest you bring a water bottle and a snack for an energy boost!
REQUIREMENTS & TIPS
Audition Tips for Dance:
Don't talk while learning choreography! Wait until the choreographer asks if anyone has questions on the steps. Go over your routine while waiting to audition. Relax- no one expects you to get it perfect after just having learned it- just do your best, smile, have personality, and keep going even if you mess up!
Audition Requirements for Vocals:
Audition Tips for Vocals:
1) Show off Your Voice.
2) Choose a section of the song that can tell use a bit of your character’s story. Vocal auditions are not just about singing – you need to act too!
3) Prepare the Sheet Music for the accompanist.
