AUDITIONS...
  • Bring with you:
    • Water bottle
    • Headshot and filled out audition form
    • Comfortable clothing for dancing
    • Dance shoes
  • Music and Monologues Format:
    • Music and Monologues will take place in the Music Room located on the 1st floor
    • The format will be a cattle call style audition, meaning everyone signed up for that hour will be in the Music room together performing in quick succession.  You should remain in the room for the entire hour and be respectful of other students. Absolutely no recording.
    • Actors and Actresses should prepare 16 bars of the song that best showcases their voice (it does not need to be from Seussical but should be from a musical theater show and not a "radio" song) and should bring their sheet music with them to the audition. We will have an accompanist for you. We would prefer if you sing with the accompanist rather than singing from recorded music on your phone.
          — If you cannot find a song, Happy Birthday will suffice.
    • You should prepare a 60 second monologue of your choosing
    • If you are auditioning for solely a dance role, you may choose not to sing during your audition (if you are auditioning for “featured dancer” type roles) HOWEVER you will still need to be at “music” rehearsals so you can sing along in the background during ensemble scenes.
  • Dance Auditions:
    • Dance auditions will take place in the Collins Auditorium located in the lower level of ND
    • Please self stretch prior to your session beginning to avoid injuries, there will also be a quick stretch at the start of the hour.
    • Our choreographer will teach you a quick dance which you will then perform in small groups
    • You should wear comfortable dance attire but please no baggy clothing  
    • Acceptable footwear:
      • Dance shoes including: ballet, jazz, or hip hop sneakers
      • Please no character shoes or tap shoes and please do not wear just socks
      • If you don’t have dance shoes, please be barefoot or wear lightweight sneakers such as Keds
    • Everyone auditioning for Seussical must attend a dance audition.
