Come with a prepared song. Come with a portion of memorized song, not to exceed 1.5 minutes. Choose which portion of the song best reflects your vocal range and abilities; you don’t need to start at the beginning of the song. To help us understand your ability to grasp the essence of Freaky Friday, please select a song from another similar musical. It’s best not to select a song from the show for which you are auditioning (in this case, Freaky Friday).
An accompanist is provided or you may bring your own. No A Cappella, please. Bring one copy of sheet music for the accompanist. You may bring recorded instrumental accompaniment for your vocal number; however, recordings with accompanying vocals are not allowed. Auditioners should not accompany themselves.
- Be prepared to talk about yourself. The audition staff will usually ask you a few questions to get to know you better. They might ask about your recent performing experiences, why you want to be a part of this play, etc.
- Come in a dressy casual outfit for the singing part of the audition. We will be doing this part of the audition first. Remember, when you feel good about how you look you perform at a higher level.
- Bring clothes you can move in! The movement/dancing part of the audition will be second. You will learn a short dance combination, so bring something that you can be energetic in—clean, flexible-soled shoes and comfortable clothing.
- Be fully rested for your audition. Energy is that intangible force that can elevate you to that next level of excellence. When you audition, take a deep breath, focus your thoughts and energy, and GO FOR IT!
Remember to be yourself, project your voice, smile, and have fun! Break a leg!!!
