Vocal/Monologue Auditions:
Prepare to sing 8–12 bars of a song from a musical (not a “pop” song, nor a song from Annie). Bring sheet music taped flat together so accompanist does not need to turn any pages; preferably in a key with few sharps and flats.
Memorize an approx. 2 minute monologue. Preferably in the spirit of the character one is auditioning for—if auditioning for a certain part.

Dress comfortably, allowing for active movement.
