Vocal Auditions- Monday 12/2, 3:30-7pm
-4 minute slots, by sign-up (on "Musical Audition Forms" page).
Students should prepare a musical theatre song that is NOT from 1776. We provide an accompanist. Sheet music is required (lyric sheets, guitar ‘tab’, and lead sheets are not acceptable).
Song recommendations: a ‘legit’ 1950’s/60’s musical theatre song, no pop/rock. We would like to hear a “story song”—wordy songs/songs where you are a clear character telling us a story will be the best choices. Good composers to consider include: Lerner & Loewe, Bock & Harnick, Frank Loesser, Adler & Ross, Cy Coleman, Rodgers & Hammerstein,*some* George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Rodgers & Hart, Sondheim, Jason Robert Brown.
Acting Auditions- Tuesday, 12/3 3:30-5:30pm
