I am excited to have everyone come in an audition for the 2022/23 Play Production Class! Don't have much/any experience? That's ok! We have had people who have never stepped on stage get cast with people who have been performing for years. You just have to have the confidence to go for it!
What you need: Actors must prepare TWO monologues. One comedic; one dramatic. They should each be about 2 minutes in length. Anything under 1 minute/over 3 (over and I'll probably stop you. You are welcome to cut it down to under 3) won't be a good opportunity for us to properly evaluate you. In addition, you need to prepare about 1 minute of a musical theatre song. There will be a piano to check starting notes and a speaker if you have a backing track. We will not have a live pianist.
WHAT IF I CAN'T SING? WHAT IF I'M NOT FUNNY? ETC. We don't expect you to be a accomplished in all areas of performing. We are looking for people who go for it! Who are willing to take a risk. I'll teach you how to be funny or dramatic, but I need people who are willing to make strong choices.
How do I know if I'm preparing correctly? We will offering FREE workshops to help you with your auditions!
Tips for Auditioning
Prepare your piece well. Memorize your selection and practice it many times.
Be kind to everyone and smile.
Remember that your audition for every show begins the moment you walk in the door. You may be perfect in the audition room, but rudeness or misbehavior in the lobby will be noticed.
Be on time for your appointment.
We ask that you arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment so that all of your paperwork can be completed before you go in for your auditions. Arriving early also gives you time to relax and focus and not feel rushed.
Use your waiting time wisely.
It is great to see old friends and make new ones at an audition, but be sure to take some time to focus on your audition.
Audition Tips and FAQ
When you walk into the audition room, tell us your name and the name of the piece you have prepared. This makes a good first impression.
If you make a mistake, do not apologize. Remember that others may not even notice a mistake, but if you point it out to them, they will know for sure.
It’s OK to be nervous.
Don’t worry about being nervous. Just about everyone is nervous. Do your best to smile and have a good time.
