Auditions

Auditions will be held on February 5th (Saturday) from 3pm – 7pm and February 6th (Sunday) from 3pm – 7pm at Jackson Church (68 Bennetts Mills Rd., Jackson, NJ 08527). Everyone is welcome to participate, and everyone who auditions will get a part, although we are limited in the number of speaking parts available.

Optional dance auditions will be held on Sunday, Feb. 6th from 2-3pm. Dance auditions are a way for you to show us your dance talent and to have a larger (or lead) dance role on the musical.

What are we looking for in auditions? We’re mainly looking at how prepared you are as well as singing/acting ability. We definitely prefer that you’ve memorized the words to your monologue and song.

To sign-up and audition:

1. Sign up for an audition slot.

You can sign up for the audition:
Audition Signups (5-12th grades)

Auditions will be held in 10-minute blocks. Please arrive about 5-10 minutes early so that we can start right away!

2. Prepare a monologue.

3. Optional: Prepare a song!

Listed below are suggested songs for auditions. Students are encouraged to prepare a song, however they may opt-out to be considered for a non-singing part. If you would like to use one of these songs you can choose to sing it a cappella (without music) or use the karaoke track. Each song listed has a link to the karaoke track that will be provided at auditions. If there is a song not listed below that you would like to sing a cappella at the auditions you may do so. Karaoke tracks can only be used with the songs listed below; we’ll only be providing the music, so please make sure you know the lyrics or bring them along!
