Audition Prep Workshop

Audition Prep Workshop is a 30 minutes private coaching session with a voice instructor to review your audition song and prepare for upcoming auditions.

Auditions

Auditions are required in order to assess each individual actor’s comfort level of as a performer, evaluate their skills and find the role that will best fit their personality and talent. Registration for auditions is required. Actors will be seen in groups of 10-15 in the order in which they arrive. They will be photographed and fill out an audition form, listing their availability and experience. There is no cost to audition, however all who are cast in our youth or community theatre productions must pay a participation fee.

How to Prep for Your Audition

Actors should prepare 16 bars (measures of music) of a musical theatre song in the proper key. Sheet music for the song should be hole-punched and in a binder for the accompanist. (Sheet music can be copied from songbooks at the Northbrook Public Library or purchased online at sheetmusicplus.com). For the reading part of the audition, the director will use parts from the script. Actors will have a chance to practice reading through the lines, and the director can answer questions and offer assistance in the audition. The program supervisor, choreographer, music director and director, as well as other actors auditioning in the same group, will be present during auditions. You may also register for an Audition Prep Workshop with one of our voice instructors prior to your audition.
