How do I prepare for my audition?
  • Memorize and prepare a monologue from a published play. Choose a piece that speaks to you and make sure you read the play to get as much information about the character and story as possible. If you are so inclined, you may prepare a monologue of your own creation instead.
  • Prepare a song from the Musical Theatre canon. Choose a track you can sing along to. You can find accompaniment tracks on YouTube, Spotify, PianoTrax, karaoke-version.com, and many other websites.
  • Learn the dance combo or mime sequence. Choose either the mime or movement piece (password: PPTP20). If you want to be considered for Musical Theatre Troupe, you must learn the dance combo “It’s Time To Dance” from The Prom, which can be found on YouTube and Spotify (starting at 2:25).
