WHAT TO PREPARE:
For Plays (non-musicals): A one-minute monologue showcasing the personality of the actor should be memorized. Please bring a printed-out headshot or other current photo to attach to your audition form (this is filled out upon arrival). Resumes are welcomed, but not necessary.
For Musicals: Each audition video should include 1 minute of a Broadway or Classic Disney song (no Pop or Rap). In addition, students should learn the demonstrated choreography sent at time of signups and then record themselves doing the dance combination.
If your student receives a callback, they are being asked to come back to read or sing for a specific character, as determined by the director. Callbacks do not guarantee casting, and likewise, NOT receiving a callback doesn’t guarantee you won’t be cast. Please plan to stay for the entirety of the callback time, but understand that students may be released early.
If your student is called back for more than one show, they will need to attend both callback times. If those times overlap, directors will coordinate to be sure that students have time to read for both.
