Video Audition Requirements

  • No more than 90 seconds in total length

  • State your first and last name.  Then, tell us the title of the song and the artist/songwriter.

  • Film in landscape.

  • Check the privacy settings when you upload your video to make sure it is viewable by our team.  You are welcome to delete the video or change the settings after casting.

    • You may upload to any video site that allows access to the video via a link EXCEPT: Dropbox or Google Drive.

  • Sit or Stand, but stay in frame.

  • No dance audition is needed at this time.

  • Performance Reels will not be viewed by the directing team.  They are often too far away and have other elements that can cause a distraction from your performance.

  • COMPLETE AN AUDITION FORM HERE starting January 25, 2021

No need to be nervous about a video audition! 


The 5 Second Rule

  • Once you start recording, smile and wait 5 seconds before speaking and do the same at the end of your video.

  • This wait time allows for your smiling face to be in the still shot of your video instead of a picture of you mid-sentence as well as ensures all of your words are recorded.
