Audition Requirements

  1. Please be on time for your scheduled audition. We expect a full day of auditions so it will be difficult to accommodate latecomers.
  2. Audition forms will be available for you to complete on your arrival for your audition.
  3. Please bring a photograph of yourself from the shoulders up to attach to your audition form. Any quality will suffice. We’d just like to remember your smiling face!
  4. Please be prepared with a memorized 2-3 minute contemporary monologue.
  5. Although this is not a musical, song and instrumentation will be incorporated into the show. If you play a musical instrument, please bring it along and be prepared to play an excerpt from a song of your choice.
  6. Similarly, you may be asked to sing, so prepare a song if you can. However, if you are uncomfortable singing, do not fret. A bit of Happy Birthday or Oh Canada will be just fine. Need further information? Leave a message on the Powerhouse phone 250-542-0330.
