We strongly recommend that you do not sing a Capella but you may if you have too. If you do not wish to be considered for a singing role you may solely present your prepared monologue. Those who wish to be considered for a non-acting chorus part in the musical may present a one minute choreographed piece in place of the one minute acting monologue. Please bring your own recorded accompaniment and playing device for your dance piece. You can also do the piece without music if you desire.

- Please read the text (click here for PDF) and choose two speeches that you would love to do and prepare them for the audition. The speeches can be from the same character or two different characters. They should preferably be of the same gender that you are.
- Pick material that you feel that you can identify with. You do not need to memorize the speeches. Just make sure that you understand everything that you say and, of course, know the meaning of any word that will come out of your mouth. In other words be prepared to answer any questions I may ask you concerning what a certain word means.
- Know the speech well enough to be able to lift your head out of the text as often as possible. Recommending that each speech be approximately 16 lines in length. However, you can be creative and bring in three speeches that total approximately 32 lines in length.
You may be asked to read again so be prepared to hang around.
