Wear appropriate clothing that makes you feel comfortable and confident.
What should I bring to my audition?
When should I arrive at my audition?
Yes! We would love to be able to schedule everyone for a live audition, but considering the extensive waiting list for one of the 128 audition slots it is just not possible. If you would like to send us a video of yourself with a 1-2 minute audition song we would be happy to accept that as your audition and you will be notified by TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12th if you have been called back for a role. Please send audition videos to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will confirm via email that we received your video within 24hrs.
Should I sing something from Into the Woods?
We suggest you arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled time slot. Give yourself a chance to arrive and breathe before you have to run in the door and audition!
We recommend that you do not sing a song from Into the Woods- we prefer to reserve those songs for callbacks. Singing something by Sondheim would be nice, but certainly not necessary for the audition.
Here is what we suggest in the vast majority of cases: sing something that makes you feel confident and comfortable; sing something that you know very well. Actors in music theater tend to have their go-to audition songs because go-to songs tend to be just what was stated above: songs that make us feel comfortable and confident that we know very well!
What should I sing at my audition?
What should I wear to my audition?
Here is the best advice we can give:
1. Choose a song from a musical that you both know and like.
2. Choose a song that fits and expresses you.
3. Choose a song that is not too difficult for an accompanist.
(Although our accompanist is excellent, this is still generally good advice.)
But I don't have any go-to songs! How should I choose?
Who will be in the room at my audition?
