*The age descriptions listed are as described in the script. They are not necessarily requirements to audition or be cast for any particular role. The director reserves all discretion in casting decisions. Every role requires skill in comedic acting, however.
Please prepare a 1-3 minute monologue from a contemporary play. Preferably comedic. Choose a piece that is important to you; we are looking for honesty and a strong commitment to what you are doing. In addition, we might have you read some sides or a monologue from the show.
Please prepare a musical theater song of your choice. Make sure to bring digital or CD accompaniment (unless singing acapella).
