Audition Requirements

If auditioning for any role other than Woodstock:

  • Please prepare two contrasting songs – one to make us laugh, one to make us cry. An audition pianist will be available. Sheet music must be well presented and in the keys you intend to sing. You may be asked to stop before you have finished your songs so please choose appropriate starting points. No backing tracks.

  • Please prepare a one-minute monologue or poem, existing or original, to be presented in the style of the character you are auditioning for.

  • Please bring a recent headshot and (optional) resume of relevant experience.

If auditioning for the role of Woodstock:  

  • Please prepare one light-hearted song or poem. An audition pianist will be available. Sheet music must be well presented and in the key you intend to sing.

  • Please prepare a one-to two-minute mime/dance to tell us a story.

  • Please bring a recent headshot and (optional) resume of relevant experience.

Dance audition:

All auditionees who attend a call-back will be required to participate in a dance and movement audition.  This will incorporate movement-based acting skills, as well as a choreographed combination and some technical tapping (of intermediate level).

The dance requirements for this show involve high energy, fast-paced movements and an ability to characterize through movement.  There is a moderate level of technical jazz and tapping (flexibility is not a focus so much as agility and coordination).

Auditionees of all levels of dance experience are encouraged to audition. Beginner level dancers should focus on demonstrating character and energy – bring a positive attitude into the room and give everything a go.  We will consider anyone that shows a potential to work hard and upskill throughout the rehearsal process.

All auditionees should bring the following to the Dance & Movement call-back:

  • Water

  • Wear gym/activewear that you can move in

  • Women may bring chorus heels and jazz shoes, or runners

  • Men may wear jazz shoes or runners

  • Bring tap shoes if you own them

  • No jeans, skirts, sandals, thongs or bare feet
