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.

Not Sure Which Role to Audition for?


(for adults AND children):

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 Call-Back. 

  • 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 The Sound of Music, which you can find on YouTube or itunes.

  • Call-back 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.
