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.
