audition material & instructions

The audition will take about 10 minutes. Participants will read a portion of the script with the director, do a pitch matching exercise and then sing a portion of a song. Please go through the following information with your child so they have a thorough understanding of what is expected.

THE READ

If your first role choice is listed below you should prepare that read for your audition.

If your second role choice is listed below you should prepare that read for your audition.

If BOTH your first AND second role choice is listed below you should prepare BOTH reads for your audition.

If neither of your role choices is listed below you may CHOOSE which read to prepare for your audition.

NOTE:

  • The number one quality we are looking for is how well you EXPRESS the character you are auditioning for. We will be critiquing vocal expression, facial expression and body expression (how you move/gesture). The more animated the better!
  • The read does NOT need to be memorized but feel free to memorize it if you wish!

PITCH MATCHING

The director will play a series of single notes on the piano and you will sing each note back to the director on "Nah".

THE SONG

If your first role choice is listed below you should prepare that song for your audition.

If your second role choice is listed below you should prepare that read for your audition.

If BOTH your first AND second role choice is listed below you may prepare EITHER song for your audition.

If neither of your role choices is listed below you should prepare Do You Wanna be a Snowman for your audition.

If you are auditioning for Hans and/or Kristoff you should sing the song an octave higher than the voice in the recording. If this is too challenging then you should sing Do You Wanna Build a Snowman. Do You Wanna Build a Snowman has an ideal vocal range for both girls AND boys with unchanged voices.

NOTE:

  • You will be singing with the INSTRUMENTAL version of the song for the audition. You have the option of warming up with the vocal version if you choose to. 
  • We are primarily critiquing intonation (singing in tune), however, if you are auditioning for a primary role (listed below), we will also be looking at how well you express your character through facial expression and movement/gesturing.  
  • If you are auditioning for a primary role the song should be memorized, otherwise it does NOT need to be memorized.

IMPORTANT AUDITION TIPS

  1. Come to the audition PREPARED! Practice the script read with a friend or family member until you can express the following points.
  2. Read IN CHARACTER! Be familiar with what the scene/song is about and what the characters personality is like!
  3. Speak with good VOCAL EXPRESSION! Practice reading in a mono-tone voice (no expression) then with an ANIMATED voice (good expression). Which sounds more entertaining? 
  4. Speak/sing with good FACIAL EXPRESSION! Practice in front of the mirror using a straight face (no expression) then with an ANIMATED face (good expression). Which appears more entertaining?
  5. Gesture when appropriate. Don't be afraid to move around and express with your body!
  6. Speak/sing with good ARTICULATION! Pronounce your words clearly. Pay special attention to the consonants! 
  7. Speak/sing with good PROJECTION! Speak/sing with good volume. Pretend that you are speaking/singing to a person in the very back row of the theater.
  8. HAVE FUN! Remember that it's FINE if you make mistakes.
