All actors who wish to participate in Company or Broadway, must audition to receive a placement. *Everyone who auditions will be invited into an amazing adventure!
One goal of the auditions is to provide practice so our players are comfortable with the process and know how to let their abilities shine. To help ensure this, the directors in the room are warm and encouraging. A performer may be considering only one show, but may discover a special second invitation! This experience empowers the performers, allowing them to best select the show or shows in which they want to participate.
*Please note, that students currently enrolled in a Company and/or Broadway class do not need to register to audition, their instructors will recommend them for their next season's level based on current class performance. Students who took did not participate this spring, will need to audition for the fall.
Monologue - Demonstrates their talents for articulation, projection and characterization. No memorization is required. View monologue options »
Singing - Shows their vocal range, voice strength and characterization. If a performer chooses not to sing, they will be considered for Company, but not Broadway.View song options »
Your performer will need to select a monologue and song to perform. Please visit our audition hub for readings and song samples. The material does not have to be memorized, but if it is memorized your child will find it easier to perform. We also suggest that your child review the list of skill requirements so that he/she understands the audition expectations and feels familiar with what will take place.
The singing station is setup to be welcoming, supportive and free of stress. We always encourage performers to give it a try, but if they are reluctant, their speaking talents can still find a strong home in Company where players always sing together.
Yes. At the Audition Station your performer will perform a brief reading and sing a short song excerpt. The audition takes place in front of two of our theater directors who will side coach and guide your performer through the process. It is our aim to make these auditions stress-free and fun! We understand that this may be the first time your young performer experiences an audition, and so it is just as much about learning how to audition.
Company and Broadway Level I will meet for a 2-hour class once a week. There are no extra requirements, although performers in this level are strongly encouraged to take a technique class (Acting Technique, Voice or Theatrical Dance).
Performers in Company and Broadway Levels II - IV will meet for a 2-hour class once a week and are required to take at least one technique class (Acting Technique, Voice or Theatrical Dance). The more technique they study, the more advanced they become.
