Note From The Directors
Song: Your audition piece must be from a Broadway musical. 16-32 bars or 1 min in length. Try to choose something that is similar to the role you would like to be considered for.
For callbacks, girls will be asked to sing either one or both of these songs:
- Not For the Life of Me (0:00-1:30) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qtHrFf_-G0
- Sweet Mystery of Life (0:16-0:29) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1a3np0ifsk
Boys will be asked to sing:
- What Do I Need with Love (0:36- 1:28) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8uqdlKj6vQ
Callbacks: We will be holding one round of callbacks to help us cast the show! Miss Arianna will be teaching a dance combination, which students will learn and then perform. We will also do some singing and reading from the script. Please also be familiar with the songs listed above as those are the songs we will be asking you to sing at callbacks. If we would like you to attend callbacks, we will ask you at the end of your audition! If you are not asked to callbacks, please don't worry - you are still in consideration to be cast in the show!
Tips: This is a very dance heavy show, and we are looking for students who are skilled dancers and good movers! Please wear clothing you can move comfortably in, and bring any dance shoes you may have (if any).
