Tips

  • THE VERY BEST - Your video may be the only chance for you to show us what you’ve got! Take multiple shots and send us the best one you have.
     

  • SOUND BALANCE - We need to hear your voice and the accompaniment clearly and in balance with each other. Make sure you and your accompanist are not too close or too far away from the camera.
     

  • WE NEED TO SEE YOU - Please make sure you are centered in the video frame. It’s not necessary for us to see you from head to toe, but we’d like to see as much of you as possible.
     

  • SLATE YOURSELF - Before you begin singing, please make sure you tell us your name and the show(s) you are auditioning for. (If you are only auditioning for a specific role, please tell us that role.)


I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your performance of ‘Miss Saigon’ yesterday. It was my first time seeing one of your shows, but it won’t be the last. You did a spectacular job. Thanks for the opportunity to watch you.
