Audition Guidelines for students
College auditions are open to all current Juniors set to graduate in May 2021.
Musical & Acting:
Auditions are 90 seconds TOTAL. (Does not include slate. Slate = your name, audition selection titles, written/composed by...)
Acting = 2 contrasting monologues
Musical = 1 song selection and 1 monologue
Not included in 90 seconds is a moment to speak with accompanist about tempo
Time keeper will cut you off at 90 second mark.
Wear an outfit that makes you easily identifiable. Try to avoid IE blacks.
Contrasting monologues does not necessarily mean Shakespearian and modern. Think creatively
AUDITION CAN NOT EXCEED 90 SECONDS TOTAL
Auditions are “round robin” style
2-3 minutes with a college rep then they move to next table
You get a table to set up examples of your work. Ex: portfolios, realized costume designs, stage manager binders, etc.
Bring water, have equipment charged up, & plan for no WIFI
Call Backs: College reps will begin posting call back lists throughout the audition process. During callback time, selected students will visit with individual college reps at their booth locations.
