Audition Tips

Details for upcoming auditions are coming soon!

Audition Songs, Lines & Dance

All will be taught at the Registration and Audition Prep Night. From the moment you begin the audition process, the Directors are observing your vocal range, intonation, character, technique and attitude.

  • You will be allowed to sing one of the audition song songs of your choice
  • You will be allowed to say one of the audition lines of your choice
Be Prepared
Reading about the show, the characters and preparing your lines PRIOR TO the day of auditions will go a long way to build your own self-confidence. Dress in comfortable clothing and make sure your hair is pulled away from your face.
Projection is always a major consideration. If you are loud, this increases your chances for a speaking part or solo more than anything else.
This is musical theatre and you need to be bigger than life. Watch some Tony Award performances on youtube to get the right idea.
If you have great character but the part you are being considered for has a solo that your voice cannot carry then that takes you out of contention for that part. On the other hand, if you have a beautiful voice but little or no character, that will take you out of contention for most parts.
Get Excited!
The directors are looking for energetic entertainers! You must be able to paint a picture for the audience with your body, facial and vocal expression. We must be able to clearly hear and understand every word and mood you are trying to convey.
The Proper "Look"
  • Clean
  • Neat
  • No Hats
  • Hair pulled back away from your face at all times
  • Wear comfortable clothes that you can dance in
  • Respectful attitude
Audition Etiquette
  • Sit quietly until it is your turn
  • Be willing to try what is expected of you (remember, it is musical theatre – we ALL sing and we ALL dance)
  • Do not leave the room until you are dismissed
  • Do not enter a room while someone is performing
  • Do not talk while someone is performing
  • Never talk while a director is talking
  • Do not roll your eyes at others
  • Do not judge others
  • Do not gossip
  • Always be kind and gentle to everyone


Become a better singer and speaker.  The Vocal Coach offers a great line of daily vocal exercises via digital download from their online store. Warm-up, Breathing, and Daily Workouts are a great place to start. If you already have been practicing with the “COMPLETE BREATHING” exercises, add the “COMPLETE TONE”  to your daily routine.

WARM UP EVERY DAY! In order to protect and better yourself as you grow, you MUST warm up your singing and dancing muscles properly before you workout! Do not neglect the importance of warming up before rehearsals and performances!
