What to Prepare:

  • Headshot
  • Resume (or any record of recent production history)
  • One 60-second Musical Selection

    NOTE: THIS IS NOT A TRADITIONAL MUSICAL. It is written in a style far post-Hamilton. While some of the music is in a traditional style, and there are some lovely ballads, you are encouraged to bring Contemporary R&B, Pop, or Rap. We want to see you tell a story and share your skills through contemporary song styles. Please avoid classical musical theatre songs.   

    This can be sung a cappella, or you can provide an audio track from your phone to be cued up and played in the room. An accompanist will be provided, if sheet music is prepared.

Rehearsal Start Date: July 12, 2021, Times TBD upon actor conflict schedule. The bulk of rehearsals will be evenings and weekends.

Performance Dates: August 12 & 13, 2021
