The following are provided as guides to those requiring additional assistance in planning for an audition.

The Musical Audition

Choosing your song:

  • You should choose a song that is in your voice range.
  • Do not mimic the voicing of another performer.  The director wants to hear your voice!  Choose Disney or songs from Musicals.
  • Memorize the song so you can ‘act’ it out.  You may use a few props if it helps tell the story in your song.

Performing the song:

  • You need to show the power and beauty of your voice,
  • Use your voice to bring your character to life,
  • Be sure the character is one you enjoy playing.

The Monologue

Performing the monologue:

  • Your purpose is to show you have the skills and tools to practice the craft of acting,
  • Use the character to show you can act,
  • Your character should be the kind of role you enjoy doing,
  • You may use a few props if it helps tell the story.

Production Crew 

• People interested in being part of the production crew (stage crew, set design &  painting, lighting, sound, costumes, make-up, front of house) should come to the audition site and register.  You do not need to reserve a time, simply show up and fill out a form.  We will hold a Production Crew meeting late July or early in August to establish timelines and areas of responsibility.

Only successful applicants will be notified of their invitation to join the cast and crew.
