What can you expect at an Encore Players audition?

You may prepare a song if you are trying out for a major part, or sing something easy the music director will ask you to sing, like Happy Birthday or Row Row Row Your Boat. If you are preparing a song to sing, YOU MUST bring the sheet music with you, so you can sing with accompaniment. Singing prepared songs without accompaniment is discouraged for a variety of reasons.

We will give you something to look over and read out loud. We are listening for clarity, expression, interpretation, and confidence. No need to prepare a monologue.

We strive to take the pressure out of auditions and make them fun, so everyone has a good time!
