Fill out an Audition Form

  1. Prepare a contemporary monologue of up to 60 seconds 
    This is required for both With Two Wings and Bright Star. Those auditioning who believe they might be appropriately cast as young characters are encouraged, but not required, to select a monologue spoken by a young person from a play.

    Playwrights to consider for source material include Suzan Zeder, Steven Dietz, Laurie Brooks, Jose Cruz Gonzaléz, James Still, Eric Cobel, and Nicole B. Adkins.

  2. Prepare a verse and a chorus (approximately 16 bars) of a contemporary musical song. Bring your sheet music to auditions.

    This is only required for Bright Star. If you need help, here is a website dedicated to audition songs from musicals along the same style as
    Bright Star. Again, these are just here to help you find something if you’re stuck. 
    Robber Bridegroom, Big River, Ring of Fire, etc.


Callbacks for With Two Wings will be held on Thursday, August 31st from 6:30-10:30 p.m.

Callbacks for Bright Star will be held on Friday, September 1st from 6:30-10:30 p.m.
