Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I love to act but I can't sing or dance. Can I just do the acting portion of the audition?
A: Each student needs to prepare all three aspects of the audition, not just the one you are comfortable with. Although you need to sing, dance, and act in the audition, that doesn't mean we will make you sing a solo or dance a crazy ballet if you aren't comfortable with it. There are scenes in a musical where the entire cast sings, dances, and acts, and its important for us to know that you are willing to do your best at each.
Q: I have never even heard of a monologue. How am I supposed to prepare one?
A: There are 3 places I recommend looking for a monologue. The first? THE INTERNET! Try googling "teen girl monologues" or something else that fits you. You can also search for movie scripts (but make sure it is long enough) or the city library. The library has a lot of books with monologues in them that you will be able to check out or copy pages from.
Q: What are the requirements for the song portion of the audition?
A: You can find suggestions for your 16 bar audition under the "Musical Theater Solo & Duet List" tab above. Google a song that sounds interesting to you and choose one you like! They are only divided by girl and boy solos, so make sure you pick one that is appropriate for your voice part. Mrs. Bird and Mr. Wright have the music for most of these, and others you can buy online and print off yourself. If you have questions about picking a solo appropriate for you, just ask! We will gladly give you advice :) You DO need the piano accompaniment for your song, so practice with it! We will not accept any a cappella auditions.
