Audition Information (ages 16 - 120!)


You should sing for no more than SIXTY SECONDS. We will stop you after one minute. 

  • Choose a song that best shows off your voice. 

  • Try to choose a song that is not too low or too high for your vocal range so that you sound your best. 

  • Know the lyrics. It does not make a good impression if you arrive at your audition without a song prepared (this is a musical, after all!). 

  • Sing with as much expression as possible and enjoy yourself! 

  • Your song choice should NOT be from Hello Dolly!, but it should be a song from the world of musical theater, not pop or rock. We highly recommend songs from other musicals of the 1950's or 1960's.

Please note: Your audition song will be a capella. No accompanist or backing tracks will be used.


Please choose one character in one scene to read at your audition. We don’t care if you trip over some of your words; just make sure you read with expression and character. The scene does not need to be memorized.

The scenes to choose from are:

1) Dolly & Horace

2) Cornelius & Barnaby

3) Irene & Minnie

4) Ambrose & Dolly

5) Horace & Ermengarde


Hello Dolly! is a very heavy dance show and we need a lot of dancers and movers!

EVERYONE auditioning for Hello Dolly! needs to learn this dance combination and be prepared to dance it live with a small group at your audition. We want to see how you move, and how animated you are when you dance.

Not Sure Which Role to Audition for?


If we would like to see you do more, you will receive an e-mail by the end of the week of auditions inviting you to participate in a Callback. 

  • You will receive a specific appointment time

  • We will ask you to prepare a new scene.

  • We will also ask you to learn part of a song or songs from Hello Dolly!, which you can find on YouTube, Spotify, or itunes.

  • Callback materials do NOT need to be memorized.

  • Make sure to arrive at your callback prepared.

If you don’t get a callback, that does not necessarily mean you won’t be in the cast.

​It just means we saw everything we needed at your original audition.
