Please look into the show and find a monologue that fits you best! High School Musical, Jr. is based on the Disney film and entails many of the film’s fun, recognizable tunes, dance numbers, plots and characters. There is a diverse array of roles in this musical. The roles are composed of different cliques that the cast will be divided among, including thespians (actors), skater dudes, brainiacs, jocks, cheerleaders, and some youth will also play adult roles. The most important thing about approaching auditions is coming with a positive attitude and giving it your best effort!
They do not have to be from the listed sites. These sites are only to show you what a monologue is. However, if you like one from the sites listed below feel free to use it.
SHEET MUSIC SOURCES:
You can buy vocal books, use music you have at home or use these sources to find and buy sheet music online:
PRIOR TO THE AUDITION:
Sign up for a time, and fill out an online audition form.
You should come prepared with a song that you can also act during. You only need to do a monologue if you are going for a solo part or if the role you want has monologue written next to it (above). Some roles in this show are primarily acting roles.
Rehearse your introduction, monologue, and song in front of family and friends!
Make sure your sheet music is ready and marked with a start and end position for the pianist. It should be in a book, folder, or 3 ring binder to give to the pianist. Please use sheet music with an accompaniment part, if you plan to use one of your actor books/scripts from a past SAYT production please know that it does not have the accompaniment in it and will not be sufficient.
THE DAY OF AUDITIONS:
Please arrive at the center 10 minutes prior to your scheduled audition time to check in.
An assistant will bring you to the audition room – if you have a resume you should bring it in with you and give it to the director at the audition table. You will then give the accompanist your music. We prefer you to audition by yourself but we understand that auditions can be scary so please do what you need to be comfortable — your parent may come into the room if you need them to!
If you are not using sheet music but would like to play an accompaniment off of your phone, or another electronic device we will have a speaker with an 1/8" auxiliary cable for use.
Your introduction should consist of the following:
Hello, my name is _____________. I will be singing _______________________ and doing a monologue called (from, as the character of, a selection from, etc.) _________________________.
(You can decide what order you want to go in, if your monologue leads into the song you can start with that — if you are only singing that is fine too!)
AFTER YOUR AUDITION:
You are free to go with your parent or guardian. A callback list will be posted on our Facebook page & website Friday sometime after acting/dance auditions are completed. Callbacks will include acting, vocal and dance callbacks. If your name is not on the callback list, you are not needed for callbacks.
