Audition Info

Auditions are open to middle school students, high school students and adults

This production is minimally rehearsed.  We ask that you audition with the song you are interested in singing in the performance. All auditions will be submitted electronically. If there are call backs needed they will be in groups of no more than 10, socially distanced, and will follow safety protocols,

 

SONG SELECTION/RECORDING TIPS:

  1. Theme for this event is songs of hope and inspiration. Please keep this in mind as you make your song selection. For ideas you can check out this list and this one. But you are not limited to these suggestions.

  2.  Use your cell phone. Set on a tripod, selfie-stick, or have someone film you. State your name, the song title and show. Choose a location that has good light so we can see your face.

  3. Sing a 1-minute excerpt of your song.  This can be sung acapella, or with music track (like a karaoke track) playing behind you.

  4. You do not need costumes or props - just you and your voice!

    3. Contact Jessica by email or phone at 509-972-6633 if you have any questions.

    4. Please do not text videos or try to email them directly, as the file size will be so greatly reduced it will not be useable. 

REHEARSALS:

If you are cast you are responsible for providing a copy of the music for your song to the music director. You can get most songs at: www.musicnotes.com. Look for the SINGER PRO VERSION that will have the vocals with the piano/guitar.

Masks are required at rehearsals when you are not performing/singing. Most rehearsals will be one on one with director/music director to minimize covid exposure risks, and we will be social distancing with a minimum of 6 feet. We will have health screening questions at the beginning of rehearsals. Stay home if you feel sick - we may have options of virtual rehearsals.  Please read actor/crew agreement and refer to VMT's COVID Preparedness plan for detailed descriptions.
