Find your Performance Class Musical below and choose ONE Song to prepare for your audition. Guide Vocal tracks and Instrumental Tracks are above the listed songs. For your student's audition, they will need to use the Instrumental Track.
Please also prepare one side for you audition.
Any student who wishes to have a lead part and or featured part (soloist or drama part) must participate in the audition....both singing and acting.
All students will be in the musical and will have special parts so.....NO WORRIES. There are lots of ensemble parts. We want this to be fun experience.
If you student is auditioning for Willy Wonka Kids, Willy Wonka Jr, or Oliver Jr, they will need to submit a video audition by January 7th. Callbacks will be in our first class if needed.

Vocal Auditions 1) A musical theater vocal audition is NOT "American Idol". This is an audition, not a “sing-off”. It’s all about storytelling. The directors aren’t so much listening to voices as looking for who can tell a story with their voice, face, and body.
2) The directors have a problem. They need to put together a big puzzle and find just the right pieces to put it together best. They are not there to “judge” you – they are really hoping that you’ll be the right fit for one of the puzzle pieces. Your job is to help the directors solve their problem. So, there’s no need for you to be nervous!
3) If you’re nervous anyway, “hide” behind the character. Remember that it’s not “you” up there; it’s your character. Tell your character’s story the entire time when you audition. Get involved in telling the story and don’t spend time thinking about how your voice sounds when you sing. Make a strong, active choice for your character, and play it fully. We can't tell anything about your character if you don't show us an active personality.
4) Try to be aware of what your face and body are doing when you sing. Regardless of how your song sounds, if your face doesn’t tell the story of the song, the audience isn’t going to understand the story. Our brains process pictures before they process words, so if your hands are busy doing something unrelated to the song (for instance: tugging at the bottom of your shirt) the audience is going to think your song is about something else (a shirt), no matter what words you’re singing!
5) Use clear diction. We need to understand every word that you sing.
