Other Details:

  • Professor David Charles Goyette (Theatre), Dr. Jackie Collett (Music) and Professor Melody Jennings (Dance) will be viewing the auditions on Sunday.  Dr. Taylor Hutchinson will be accompanying those auditioning.
  • Please sign up for BOTH a rehearsal slot with the accompanist (Oct. 1) and an audition slot (Oct. 3).
  • Prepare a 32 bar (2 minutes max) broadway musical theatre song and a 1 minute contemporary monologue.
  • Sheet music should be in a binder, hole-punched, and double-sided if the excerpt is longer than two pages — just like reading a book.  Cuts should be clearly marked and all photocopies should show everything from the page. Double check that the bottom of the piano part doesn’t get cut off.
  • Dr. Hutchinson (Pianist) also plays from their iPad.  If you prefer to email digital copies in advance that would work as well.  Feel free to email Dr. Hutchinson at
