Preliminary auditions will consist of performing a short contemporary monologue, as well as a short vocal audition (see Vocal Audition Requirements below). If you do not have a monologue prepared,
please read from one of the “Optional Monologues” listed at the very bottom of the General Audition Information page. These include a monologue in Spanish.

Callbacks will consist of a dance/movement audition (see Dance Audition Requirements below), a vocal audition in which actors will sing specific songs from the show with limited preparation time, and reading from some scenes.
