STEP 2: Go to http://hendrickscivic.com/auditions/ and complete the Online Audition Form ahead of time.
This information will be sent to the audition team and they will have copies at the audition already. Please make every effort to complete this information by Thursday, December 12. After that, you will have to complete three forms by hand at the audition site.
PREPARATION: Please prepare a verse and a chorus of a musical theatre song. NO POP SONGS WILL BE ALLOWED (i.e. Taylor Swift, Imagine Dragons, almost any song you hear on the radio.) There are many resources online that can help you pick an appropriate song. If you are lost, here is one reference that may help you. https://www.musicaltheatreaudition.net/performance/childactors/songs.html An accompanist will be provided, and you must bring sheet music – A Cappella singing will not be permitted for this audition. Sheet music for most songs can be printed at www.musicnotes.com. You can even listen to the accompaniment on the website in multiple keys. You can pick whichever key is most comfortable for you to sing in.
When casting the show, the most important quality that the directors look for in a vocal audition is the ability to project your voice. We all know, understand, and sympathize with how stressful an audition can be. But we want you to know that being confident (or at least faking it!) and singing out will greatly increase your chance of being cast in the show!
