Prepare for the Audition
Prepare two separate vocal selections. Pick the best 16 bars of each. Remember that we're not just looking for good vocalists. We need singers who can really tell a story. Do your very best to know the story behind the words you're singing and convey that in your audition.
Please bring an edited CD or iPod to accompany your music selections (without background vocals). If using a cell phone, please have it in Airplane Mode and queued up, ready to go.
We'll also provide an accompanist for vocal auditions. Please bring edited sheet music in the correct key.
A Capella auditions are not permitted.
In addition to your prepared pieces, we may ask you to learn additional music or a movement combination.
Auditioning can be a lengthy process; you may be asked to stay for a callback.
Prepare a resume and headshot, which will be retained by the audition team.
If you wish to dance, please come prepared. Dancer auditions are held separately from vocalist auditions and have different requirements. Please click here for more information.
