Please come with a prepared song—sheet music or karaoke CD (music only; no one singing on the CD). Even if you are auditioning for a non-singing role, we would like for you to sing something; even “Happy Birthday”. An accompanist will be provided and we will have a CD player on hand if needed. No monologues necessary. Those being considered for singing roles and non-singing roles will be asked to read from the script which will be given and assigned to you at the audition or callbacks.
