We would like to extend a warm welcome to individuals of all races, all ethnicities, all gender identities, and abilities to audition. We believe that the arts should be a reflection of the diverse world we live in, and we are committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for all performers. We encourage actors of all backgrounds and levels of experience to come and audition. So whether you’re a seasoned actor or new to the stage, we welcome you!
Please prepare 16 to 32 bars (no more than a minute) of a song from the show, or in a similar style, to sing for your audition. A pianist will be present to accompany you, and will have the show’s score on hand. Please feel free to bring your own sheet music if you’d prefer. No a cappella auditions allowed.
