Audition DayThe audition will take anywhere from a half hour to three hours depending on the complexity of the show and number of auditioners present. Choose an audition song that best shows off your voice and acting abilities. If it is your first audition, any song will do, and many first-time auditioners sing tunes like "Happy Birthday" or "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star." More experienced auditioners should choose a song that is similar in style and time period to the show they are auditioning for. For instance, if the show you are auditioning for was written in the 1990s, choose a contemporary musical theatre song to audition with. Those auditioning should bring a musical theatre song (or any song they are comfortable with), 16-32 bars or one minute in length. Bring an accompaniment with CD or iPod to sing with. You may also sing acapella if needed.
