Everyone is required to participate in the vocal portion of the audition.

Please be prepared to sing 32 bars of a song from a modern musical that shows off your vocal range and matches the range/style of the character you are interested in playing. We'll provide the accompanist for your vocal audition, but you need to bring the sheet music (in the proper key) with you for your song. Please mark a clear start and stop point for the Accompanist.

The dance portion of the Audition is optional, but recommended.

A short dance number will be taught and performed on site. The Choreographer is not looking for perfection, but will take note of performer's skill level and ability to take direction.
 

If you are unable to attend the auditions in person, you may submit a video audition up until 5pm on August 12, 2018.

Video auditions will be accepted by posting a video online and providing us with the web address of that video. Audition videos should include 32 measures of singing.

When you fill out the online audition form HERE, please check the box next to "I will be auditioning by video". The TTIP Administration office will forward your audition form containing your video audition information to the director.
