Audition Information:

Date. Time, and Location: Wednesday, September 6th, 5-8 pm (Recital Hall, BAC) 

To Sign up and Prepare: 

  1. Sign up for a one hour time slot to audition on SignUp Genius: 

  1. Download the zip file and select one of the following song excerpts from the show to prepare for auditions. For each song, there is a score, a recording with vocals and a recording without vocals. Please be prepared to sing with the recording that has no vocals at auditions. If none of these songs is a good match for your voice, please prepare a short excerpt from a song of your choosing and bring your music to the audition.
  1. Select one of the short scenes below and practice it so that you may perform it at auditions. Scenes do not have to be memorized.
  1. Print and complete the Audition Form and bring it with you to auditions. We will also have printed copies at auditions if you aren’t able to complete the form beforehand.
  1. Show up a few minutes early for your assigned audition time. We will begin each one hour slot by having everyone learn and perform a short piece of choreography. After the dance audition, each individual will have 5 minutes to sing their song excerpt and if needed, sing some scales with the music director to determine vocal range.


If you have any questions about how to prepare for auditions or can’t find an audition time that works for you, please contact Gyehyun Jung: [email protected]
