Auditions are open to middle school, high school students, college students and adults
Indicate on your audition form 2-3 songs from the list of available show songs that you would be interested/willing to sing. You may not necessarily get cast in the song that you audition with and you should expect the possibility receiving a different or multiple songs. Please check 2-3 songs from the list that you might want to do - but please audition with the one song you really want to do the most.
Sign up for one 10-minute audition slot. You are asked to arrive 10 minutes early to check in.
Complete and upload the actor agreement form and a headshot, and complete the audition form at the bottom of this page.
IF YOU CAN'T MAKE THE AUDITION DATES: We will accept a video audition. Record yourself on your phone - introduce yourself, your song selection, and sing ONE MINUTE of your song. Upload the video to google drive or icloud and share a link to the video with ValleyMusicalTheatre@gmail.com. Videos auditions must be received by Oct. 9 to be considered.
An accompanist will NOT be available. We will have rehearsal piano tracks for each of these songs available for the audition. No need to bring sheet music. Be aware there are limited adjustments we can make to keys for the available songs. It is preferable to audition with your song in the correct key.
If the song is a duet and you want to prepare to sing the song with another actor and audition together you may. Each actor must still fill out their own audition paperwork, but you may sign up for one audition slot.
There is flexibility allowed in casting. Songs do not necessarily need to be sung by a person of the gender it was originally written for. What is important is that you choose a song that showcases your vocal range well, and that your acting choices make sense.
Minor students may bring one parent/guardian with you during the audition.
Everyone in the facility must wear a mask. Actors may take their mask off during their audition only.
