What we'll be doing at these auditions
Ages 16 and up
Please prepare a 60-90 second cutting of a song of your choice. I would love to see something in the style of The Swan Princess movie music, but choose anything you will be most comfortable with :). You may bring a cutting of the music for your song to the audition (a bluetooth speaker will be provided) or you may sing it acapella. Audition sides are provided here. Please choose one of the four monologues (you may read any of them regardless of which character they are). If you can memorize it, that would be great, but it is not required. I am mostly looking to see how much characterization and movement you can add to the piece.
Ages 15 and under
Please prepare a 45-60 second cutting of a song of our choice. I would love to see something in the style of The Swan Princess movie music, but choose anything you will be most comfortable with :). You may bring a cutting of the music for your song to the audition (a bluetooth speaker will be provided) or you may sing it acapella.
Audition sides are provided here. You will read the scene between Derek and Odette. Please be prepared to read for both characters. If you can memorize it, that would be great, but it is not required. I am mostly looking to see how much characterization you can add and watching for how you interact with the other character.
We will be learning a short sequence of choreography in auditions. So please wear comfortable clothes and shoes you can dance in.
Character breakdowns are provided here. Callbacks will be Saturday the 9th at 3 pm. Please let me know in auditions if you will not be able to make it. I am so excited to see all the great work everyone will put together. If you have any questions before then, feel free to reach out to me. See you soon!
