What to Prepare for Acting Auditions
Note that all students auditioning will need to fill out a hard copy version of the Audition Form prior to auditions, which can be downloaded and printed ahead of time by clicking on the link below. Blank forms will also be available on the day of auditions.
Less experienced students or students new to auditioning may use a song and/or monologue from those provided by KIDSTAGE. You can access the songs and monologues below.
To view, download, and/or print the suggested audition songs, please click the song titles below. You will also find rehearsal and accompaniment tracks of each song to use as reference recordings. Please note that all auditions will be accompanied by piano, not with these reference tracks. Auditioners should also be prepared by providing sheet music that includes the piano accompaniment.
More experienced students should prepare the following:
- A one-minute comedic monologue (please keep content appropriate).
- 60-90 seconds (approximately one verse and one chorus) of a song from musical theatre.
o Please bring your audition book (i.e. a three-ring binder with your piano sheet music of additional songs). You may be asked to sing an additional song, so prepare accordingly.
o Make sure your sheet music includes the piano accompaniment.
All auditioners should bring one copy of their headshot and one copy of either their acting resume or a list of performance experience. Photos can be photocopied and school photos are fine.
To offer and maintain a safe, professional theatrical environment for students and staff, all auditions are closed auditions. Parents, families, and mentors/instructors are not permitted in the audition room to watch or assist students in auditions under any circumstances.
