  • WE NEED TO SEE YOU - Please make sure you are centered in the video frame. While dancing, please make sure we can see your entire body, including feet and arms.
     
  • 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.
