The audition materials are available on our website and will also be provided the day of the audition. 

All children should prepare the monologue.  It does not need to be memorized but the child should be quite familiar with it.  

Your child may be asked to stay and read a character in one of the scenes as well.


Please bring a headshot, or photograph of your child (can be printed from the computer) and resume if your child has one.  You will be asked to fill out a form upon arrival.
