Prepare for the Audition

  • Prepare two separate vocal selections, an up tempo and a ballad. 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.
  • We'll provide an accompanist for all vocal auditions. Please bring sheet music in the correct key. Singing to a recorded track (CD, tape, etc.) is not permitted.
  • In addition to your prepared pieces, we may ask you to learn additional music or a movement combination.
  • Please bring your vocal selection book into the audition in case the casting team would like to hear additional options.
  • 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.
