ICDT! Audition Details

GENERAL AUDITIONS

*Everyone must complete a general audition in order to be considered for a Mainstage Production. When putting together a cast, we take many things into consideration. As you prepare for your audition, keep in mind we see many auditions each day so the more you can stand out, the better!*

First Time Auditioners

At your general audition we will get to know you a bit and make sure you feel comfortable before having you sing. Please prepare a short selection (30 seconds) from two different songs that you love singing. They can be from a musical or a pop song you love. Be sure to practice with a backing track so we can hear you sing with music. One of the easiest ways to find an accompaniment is to search Youtube for the song title and karaoke, and options should pop up! If you use a backing track that is not on YouTube, please bring it along with you and we can plug your device into our sound system. We may also ask you to read a portion of a scene to get an idea of your acting abilities. 

*Nerves are perfectly normal when auditioning, we recommend focusing on the experience of getting to sing (something you love!) rather than the outcome. Remember, the directors are on your side and want you to succeed. By going out of your comfort zone, you are growing & stretching and can be truly proud of yourself for going for it!

 

Experienced Performers/ICDT! Alumni

Please prepare portions of two contrasting songs that show off your personality, vocal range, and acting ability! If you are interested in a specific role you are welcome to sing one of their songs from the show. Be sure to practice with a backing track, no acapella please! You will also be asked to read a portion of a scene, please be prepared with the appropriate character side if you are interested in a specific role.

DANCE AUDITIONS

*Dance auditions are optional! You only need to attend if you wish to be considered as a dancer.

At each round of auditions we hold one open dance call for anyone who is interested in being a dancer in the upcoming show. If cast as a dancer, you would attend an extra day of rehearsals on Wednesdays and perform in featured dance numbers in the show. The dance audition is a little like taking a group dance class. You will be lead through a warm up and taught a short combination or two. Once everyone has learned the dance combination together, you will perform it in small groups of about 3-5 people at a time. If you are interested, make sure to sign up for the dance call in addition to your general audition!

HOW TO CREATE AN AUDITION VIDEO
