What to Prepare

Note that all students auditioning will need to fill out a hard copy version of the audition form prior to auditions, which can be downloaded and printed ahead of time by clicking HERE. Hard copy forms will also be available on the day of auditions.

All students auditioning should prepare the following:

  • A one-minute comedic monologue (please keep content appropriate – i.e. no expletives/suggestive language or sexual content).
  • 60-90 seconds of a song from musical theatre (approximately one verse and one chorus)
    • Please bring an audition book (i.e. a three-ring binder with your piano sheet music of additional songs that our audition accompanist can play) if you have one. You may be asked to sing an additional song, so prepare accordingly.
    • Make sure your music has the piano accompaniment, not simply the vocals. An audition accompanist will be in the room to play the song as you perform your piece. Pre-recorded tracks are not permitted.
  • Bring one copy of your headshot and acting resume. If you are auditioning for multiple programs, please provide KIDSTAGE with a separate headshot and resume for each program. Photos can be photocopied and school photos are fine.

To offer and maintain a safe, professional theatrical environment for students and staff, all auditions are closed auditions. Parents, families, and mentors/instructors are not permitted in the audition room to watch or assist students in auditions in any way.

Less experienced students or students new to auditioning may use a song and/or monologue from materials provided by KIDSTAGE.

To view, download, and/or print the music, please click the song titles below.

Audition Songs You May Choose From:

Suggested for Sopranos/Tenors: COMING SOON

Suggested for Altos: COMING SOON
