Auditions will consist of a reading from the play and a singing audition. We are looking for a few things in these auditions. For the acting part of the audition, you will read a scene from the play. For the singing audition, you will learn a short song from the show that you will sing (click here for songs). Click here to view several “sides” from the play. These are lines of dialogue from the play for particular characters. You should study this prior to the auditions so that you can perform in character. Though not required, it is best to memorize the lines for the character you choose to read for. We are looking for projection (you are loud enough so everyone seated in the theater can hear you), inflection (you have an emotional quality to your voice), and character (you offer something unique to the character you are playing). Please don’t be nervous. Get up there and give it the best you’ve got! No acting experience is necessary, the auditions simply help us find the right character for your child.
