Please prepare 32 bars of a contemporary musical theatre song that shows off vocal range and technical ability. We will not allow songs to be performed a cappella so please bring an instrumental CD (without background vocals) or sheet music in your key. No lead sheets or transpositions. An accompanist will be provided. 

If you are auditioning for a specific role, please be familiar with the songs from the show, as you may be asked to sing a selection at auditions. ALL auditioning MUST bring a current headshot and resume. Auditions will be closed. 

For more information: go to or to request an audition appointment, please email

Production Fee: $50 per cast member. Each cast member must be represented by a volunteer Production Committee member (to serve on Costumes, Sets, Props, Refreshments, Programs, Public Relations, etc.)*

[*Editor's Note: Yes, you not only do not get paid, and must volunteer all that time, AND have someone else volunteer with you, but you must pay to be in the show so the director can get paid. I personally think that's crazy.]
