Audition Information

1. Please prepare 32 bars (no more than 1 minute) of a musical theatre song that shows your voice to its best potential. If you are auditioning for SUNDAY, the song should be a musical theatre song that reflects the style of the show. (You may sing from the show.) For BAT BOY, we’re requesting a contemporary musical theatre song, preferably comic. If you are auditioning for both shows, prepare a song for each, starting with your strongest piece and we may ask for a second contrasting song. Please bring sheet music in a binder in the appropriate key. An accompanist will be provided. We may ask you to read from the script.

2. You MUST fill out an audition form. Please fill it out and email it to info@fuseproductions.org before your audition.

3. Sign up for a specific audition time.

PLEASE do not audition for either show if you have serious conflicts with these dates.
