Tips for your Audition

A couple of things that might be helpful for you to consider ahead of the audition.

  • Pick a song that best shows off your voice, whether a ballad or up-tempo number.
  • Please keep in mind that there are often overwhelming numbers of ballads.
  • Consider the types of shows in the schedule and pick appropriate material.
  • People who are primarily singers are not expected to be polished dancers, but do need to show their movement ability.
