ALL students who want to participate in the musical this year MUST pay the student fees.  In order to social distance, we are limiting the number of participants in the show.  We pay professional directors to work with the students and have to pay licensing rights, build a set, buy costumes, etc. and our budget is extremely tight this year.

Thanks for understanding.

Vocal Audition Requirements - You'll receive the Flipgrid link when you complete the interest form.

Please prepare a 90 sec (1.5 min), Up-Tempo or Ballad Broadway song that shows BOTH your range (how high and low you can sing) and the quality of your voice. (Songs from the show, as well as songs in the American Musical Theatre canon written by Kander and Ebb, are acceptable). Your initial singing audition must be submitted in a digital video format (Flipgrid). Additionally, your vocals must be backed with a tracked accompaniment. In your video, please make sure your accompaniment track is balanced in volume with your voice. Not only should we see you but also hear your voice clearly. In your submission, please SLATE in your video - your name, your grade, the role(s) for which you’d like to be considered. Please do not exceed the 90-sec time limit. Submissions are due and must be time-stamped by January 6, 2021 in FlipGrid.
