HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR PRE-RECORDED AUDITION

Choose a song from a musical (Disney, Broadway, etc.) that you enjoy singing. Record a video that’s no more than 2 minutes of you singing that song. Feel free to sing a capella or with a backtrack!

Please choose ONE of the following monologues to perform. Pick which one you like best! Feel free to change names and pronouns as desired.

Monologue 1
Monologue 2
Monologue 3

Take a moment while practicing your monologue to review some tips from our director, Patricia Yost, to see what she’ll be looking for.

Make sure your videos are shot landscape or horizontally rather than vertically. Watch this video for more tips from our Stage Manager, Steven!

Once you have recorded your two videos (singing and monologue), please fill out the audition form (below) and upload your videos in the corresponding places in the form. Let us know if there are any issues in uploading!
