Auditioning for Musical Theatre

All musical theatre applicants must prepare a 60-90 second monologue from a published contemporary American play or screenplay and two short contrasting musical theatre songs.

When auditioning in person, please bring your own accompaniment on CD or digital music player for your musical selections. When choosing audition selections, it is important to choose material that is age and type appropriate. It is also important to read the entire play, screenplay, or libretto prior to your audition. Applications should be completed online or turned in prior to your audition in order to schedule your audition appointment.

We want you to find pieces that excite you. Choose pieces with which you have a personal connection. The more connected you are to a character’s circumstances, the more we get to see your talent and personality.

An Admissions Representative will contact you shortly after your audition with an admissions decision.
