Audition Description

Funny, romantic, touching, and just a little bit wicked, Tony Award-winning classic The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. Smooth-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, cons the good people of River City, Iowa, into buying all the instruments and uniforms needed to form a children's band. Little do they know, he wouldn't know a trombone from a treble clef.


Please prepare 16-32 bars of an up-tempo musical theatre piece that best shows your vocal skill. Make sure to bring an accompaniment track with you- we will have audio equipment available for a mobile device or cd.

If you are interested in a speaking or principle role, please prepare a ~1 min. comedic monologue. There will also be monologues available to read if you're not able to prepare one.

There will be a dance portion of the auditions, so please be prepared to be at the audition for about an hour.
