THEATER + MUSIC THEATER PROGRAM AUDITIONS

The Programs in Theater and Music Theater welcome students who have never performed, or haven’t performed since the first grade. The theater and music theater programs are emphatically committed to inclusive casting. We also welcome students as participants in all non-performing roles including stage management, design, musicians, backstage run crew and so on.

*Students interested in non-performing roles can also sign up for an audition slot to hold a conversation about their interests with the creative team.

For audition questions, please contact Jane Cox, janecox@princeton.edu

AUDITIONS + INTERVIEWS —  FALL 2019

MUSIC THEATER, MUSICAL + OPERA AUDITIONS
Tuesday, October 1 + Wednesday, October 2
5-9 p.m.

Second floor theater studios, Wallace Dance Building at Lewis Arts complex

In these general auditions for all of the remaining music theater pieces, which include many styles of musical expression, we welcome students of all level of experience (or lack thereof) who would like to sing in a piece of music theater, in roles and ensembles of all sizes. Each student will sign up for a 10-minute slot. Experienced students should prepare one or two 32-bar cuts of songs that show off your vocal range, acting abilities, and personality. Bring sheet music with cuts clearly marked. Bring other song options if you have them. Less experienced and new to music theater students should not be afraid to attend without sheet music. You can sing a cappella, with accompaniment if you bring it (such as a guitar), or you can simply sing “Happy Birthday.” We hope to have varying levels of experience in the room. The theater and music theater programs are emphatically committed to inclusive casting.

AUDITION FOR:

  • Echoes in Glass by Alexandra Palocz
  • The Universe is a Small Hat by César Alvarez, a participatory musical (THR 451)
  • A Little Night Music by Stephen Sondheim

In these general auditions for the theater season, including several shows which are run as courses for credit, students will sign up for a 7-minute slot in each audition room.

Ideally, students should prepare up to one minute of material for performance. You may choose your own performance material or monolog to bring, or you may use one of the pieces that is posted at https://tinyurl.com/octoberauditions. You may choose to memorize this material but are not obligated to do so. We will also have printed monologs from the plays available in the audition room in case you decide to join us on the spur of the moment. The theater and music theater programs are emphatically committed to inclusive casting.
