Vocal Audition/Acting Audition
Students should prepare one musical theatre (Broadway) song, memorized, no longer than two minutes. Applicants may also want to prepare a 2nd song that contrasts the first song in case the judges would like to hear more. Please do not sing "Popular" from Wicked or anything from Les Miserable. Applicants should bring sheet music in the appropriate key with cuts clearly marked (if there are any). Applicants may bring an accompaniment CD with no vocals. An accompanist will be provided. Applicants may bring their own accompanist if they choose. If absolutely necessary, applicants may sing a cappella (without accompaniment) but we prefer some kind of accompaniment. Applicants should memorize a monologue no longer than two minutes from a play or musical work. Please DO NOT use monologues from The Wizard of Oz, You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown or The Diary of Anne Frank (Please no monologues from TV or film).

Applicants must wear attire or bring a change of clothing suitable to learn and perform the dance sequence. Suitable clothing includes jazz shoes, ballet shoes or tennis shoes, leotards and tights or sweat pants, etc. Those applicants with previous dance training may be asked to learn an additional dance combination.
