Before you decide to audition, please seriously consider any potential schedule conflicts or other performance opportunities that may interfere with your commitment to any show you may be cast in.

Click HERE for a full view of the Master Rehearsal, Tech, and Performance Calendar. (link updated 3/25/24)

While conflicts will not eliminate you from being cast, production teams require the information so they can plan rehearsal schedules. ALL CAST MEMBERS must be available for TECH and performances. No exceptions.

vocal audition

Everyone is required to participate in the vocal portion of the audition.

Please be prepared to sing 16 bars of a song from a modern musical (not a song from the Outdoor Summer Season). We'll provide the accompanist for your vocal audition. Please bring sheet music (in the proper key) with you for your song. Please mark a clear start and stop point for the Accompanist.

dance audition

The dance portion of the Audition is optional, but recommended.

A short dance number will be taught in groups of approximately 10 and performed on site. Choreographers are not looking for perfection, but will take note of performer's skill level and ability to take direction.

video audition

You may submit a video audition up until midnight on Thursday, April 11.

While in-person auditions are preferred, sometimes it is impossible to appear in person. We understand. Video auditions will be accepted by posting a video online and providing us with the web address of that video. Audition videos should include 16 measures of singing and be less than 60 seconds in total length. You may also perform a dance no longer than 30 seconds in total length. No "performance reels" will be viewed by the directing teams. 

Please be sure your video is set to "public viewing" so that the production teams can access the content.  Vimeo or YouTube preferred. DropBox and Google Drive are not accessible through our WIFI, but any other video service should be accessible. Video Audition Tips and Tricks

When you fill out the online audition form HERE starting April 1, please check the box next to "I will be auditioning by video". All directors will have access to your audition video.
