Additional Resources

For your audition:

Please prepare a 90 second monologue of your choosing and come prepared to show us your other talents, too. Feel free to share 90 seconds of a song, a short dance solo, instrument solo or hidden talent. If you don’t have anything else to share, that’s okay, too – but be prepared to chat with our directors after your monologue!

If you do not have access to a monologue for your audition, you may choose from the examples below.

Additional show information and casting breakdowns for each show can be found below.

Please check back for additional casting information in early January.
