Audition Info

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

This production is minimally rehearsed. This production features dramatic readings of poetry. For the audition, we ask that you record a video of yourself reciting a favorite poem (with emotion/drama), or a short upbeat monologue.  There will be no singing in this production. Chosen performers will receive one or two assigned poems for the actual production.  The number of readings assigned will be directly dependent on the number of people interested and qualified.

 

All auditions will be submitted electronically.

RECORDING TIPS:

  1.  Use your cell phone. Set on a tripod, selfie-stick, or have someone film you. State your name, the poem/author or character/play you will be performing. Choose a location that has good light so we can see your face.

  2. Record yourself reciting a poem/monologue.  We would like to see you from the waist up and are looking for intonation, expressiveness, and engagement.

  3. You do not need costumes or props.

STEPS TO AUDITION:

  1. Complete the Audition Form at the bottom of this page (or on Airtable here). 

  2. Upload a headshot/digital photo as part of the form.
