Can you be heard? The directors wants to know if the audience can hear and understand you. Use your strongest voice.

Are you making choices with the text that show off a character? Engage the audience. Use expression!

Most importantly, have fun!


Students should prepare one of the suggested monologues. Monologues are not required from auditioning students but are encouraged.


Once the cast lists are decided, they will be emailed and posted on our website. If a child is not cast, they are invited and encouraged to audition for the next show.
