What to Prepare

Acting for Stage & Screen Candidate--We ask that you prepare two contrasting monologues that showcase your strengths. Should you wish to showcase yourself as a singer, you may prepare one monologue and one song, as an accompanist will be provided on both dates. Please bring your legible music in the appropriate key with you into the audition room, as we ask that you not prepare a song a capella. Also, please bring a headshot and resume with you when you check-in.

Musical Theatre Candidate--We ask that you prepare one sing and one monologue that showcases your strengths. Please bring your legible music in the appropriate key with you into the audition room, as we ask that you not prepare a song a capella. Also, please bring a headshot and resume with you when you check-in. There will not be a dance call, but if you would like to showcase a dance solo piece, we will make time in the audition room for you. However, please inform us at check-in that you plan to showcase your dance background.

Design/Technical Theatre Candidate--We ask that you prepare to discuss your artistic and/or technical experience and background. All candidates are encouraged to bring examples of your work (i.e. photos, drawings, sound clips, etc.) Also, please bring a picture and resume with you when you check-in.
