ACTING:
Prepare a 30-45 second monologue that showcases your best acting talents.  You should memorize your monologue.  Make sure you are familiar with the content so you can get your head out of the script and show some characterization, diction, and projection!

SINGING:
Each student should prepare the assigned piece for the character they wish to audition for ahead of the vocal audition.  It is highly recommended that songs be memorized!  You should perform the song(s) as the character you are auditioning.  Multiple characters will be auditioning the same song.

If you are auditioning for the character of Alice, please prepare the following songs:
Alice:
Simon Says (Pt. 2) - WITH Vocal Guide
Simon Says (Pt. 2) - ACCOMPANIMENT ONLY!

Dancing:
Everyone will be taught a simple dance routine from the choreographer for your dance audition.  Once you learn the steps, you will perform in a small group.  Everyone must wear comfortable clothes and shoes that you can dance/move in...no sandals or flip flops.  If you want to be considered as a featured dancer, you should prepare a 30 second-1 minute combination or series of tricks that you can perform for the choreographer.
