Dance – The choreographers will teach a brief audition dance in the hour before the auditions start, and will post a video of the dance after info night for anyone who wants to start practicing early, or has to send in a video submission. Please dress for a dance audition.

Music – Auditioners are expected to prepare 32 bars of any song in the style of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Think contemporary musical comedy. Please bring sheet music for accompanist, or you can bring an audio clip to sing to, if you bring your own audio, we request that it be pre-cut to just the section of music that you will be singing, so we don’t waste time searching through a YouTube video for the correct section of music.

Acting – Auditioners will be given sides to cold read at the audition. These sides will also be available on the website after info night. Actors DO NOT need to prepare a monologue!
