The Audition Process

Auditioners should arrive promptly at 3PM and plan to stay for the entirety of the audition.

We will work with the group of auditioners on writing, singing, acting, and dancing. 

  • Please prepare a 1-2 minute song. It can be any genre. Please find an instrumental to sing with on YouTube.

  • Wear clothes that are comfortable to dance in.

  • We will give you a scene to work on at the audition - you do not need to prepare a monologue.
