Adults Audition Information (age 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 The Sound of Music, but it should be a song from the world of musical theater, not pop or rock. We highly recommend songs from other Rodgers & Hammerstein musicals.
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) Maria & the Captain
2) Elsa & Max
3) Leisl & Rolf
4) Maria & the Mother Abbess
5) Franz & Frau Schmidt
The Sound of Music includes a few dance numbers.
Please learn the short dance audition in this video below and be prepared to dance it live with a small group at your audition.
Practice your dance with this track:
