General Audition Information

Auditionees are usually asked to read from the script of the show being auditioned. It is highly encouraged and sometimes required that auditionees have read the script in advance. On occasion, specific readings may be selected by the director for auditions.

For musical auditions, auditionee should prepare a short memorized solo (approx. 2 minutes, with accompaniment) and should bring sheet music to auditions. Accompanists are provided for auditions. Solos do not need to be from the production being auditioned for. Depending on the production, auditionees may be asked to learn a short dance combination, to be performed in the audition in a small group setting, or may be asked to partipate in other movement activities.

Upcoming audition dates are listed below. Additional information about each production may be read on the page pertaining to each show under our performances tab or follow the link provided below.
