DVD, WEBSITE or YouTube AUDITION
A live audition will best convey your abilities, personality and potential. However, well-filmed video shot from the front may be submitted. High quality audio quality is essential. If possible, make sure the camera frames you head to toe. Audition via personal website video or YouTube will be considered. These selections must contain the same repertoire as required of the live auditions (see below). We reserve the right to request additional electronic samples of sufficient quality to properly evaluate you.
If submitting a DVD, provide track numbers and excerpt titles on a separate sheet of paper with your name and voice type. Before sending the DVD please be sure that it works! The priority deadline for submission of DVDs and You Tube postings is February 1 but it is in your interest to submit materials as early as possible. Send all materials to the address above.
Artists accepted into the program will be notified in early March 2013. Scholarship offers will be made shortly after notices of admission. Casting in some roles may continue after that date.
