2015-2016 Auditions Information

Audition/Interview Requirements

Students should prepare two short contemporary monologues from a play rather than a book of monologues. Monologues should be from characters aged within 5 - 7 years of student's actual age. Students interested in Musical Theatre should substitute 16 bars of a song for one monologue, and must provide their own CD accompaniment. Total audition time is 3 minutes. BRING HEADSHOT AND RESUME. Students interested in production and design should bring a portfolio of their recent work.
