To audition for the Professional Conservatory of Musical Theatre at NYFA, prospective students must submit an application. Applications can be completed online or brought to the audition. There is a required $65 application fee for the 1 & 2-Year Musical Theatre Conservatory Programs and a $50 application fee for the 4-Week Musical Theatre Workshop.

Please prepare two contrasting musical theatre songs and one monologue from a contemporary American play (each piece should be approximately 60-90 seconds in length).

  • When auditioning at the New York City location, a pianist will be provided. Please bring sheet music in a three-ring binder and in the correct key.
  • For all other auditions outside of the NYC campus, please bring an accompaniment backing track with you on a USB or mobile device (instrumental only, no vocals included).
  • We will not accept a cappella auditions (singing without music).
  • For video submissions, please make sure to include your name, the titles of the pieces and shows you are performing from, and the program that you are applying to.

Please do not choreograph your audition, use props, or perform into a microphone. We ask that you choose material that is age- and type-appropriate. It is important to remember that you must act your songs, so find pieces that excite you and that you have a personal connection to. The more connected you are to the character's circumstances, the more we are able to see your talent and personality.
