Audition Information

AUDITION REQUIREMENTS

  • Please prepare one (1) minute song in the style of the show (pop/rock song, musical or contemporary). Something in the style of the show is preferred, but not necessary. Songs from the show may be sung as well.
  • Men interested in Usnavi, Benny, Sonny or Graffiti Pete, please also prepare 30-60 seconds of a rap in any genre. Can be with a pre-recorded track or freestyle acapella. Rap sequences from the show may be performed as well.
  • Bring sheet music in your key; an accompanist will be provided. A CD with an accompaniment-only track is also acceptable, provided it is edited and cued correctly. Digital audio devices, MP3 players and phones can also be used, provided they have a standard audio headphone jack or an iPhone lightning jack. No a cappella please for the singing portion.
  • There may be cold readings from the script. Audition sides can be found at the following link: http://bit.ly/2u3L1OD
  • Please come prepared to dance a combination. All roles dance except Abuela Claudia, Kevin and Camila.
  • Bring a performing résumé if you have one (not required) or attach it to your audition application if pre-registering online. This is an “open call” audition. Non-Equity, NO PAY.

When auditioning, please list any and all commitments during the rehearsal period – even on days not currently listed as rehearsal days. To the greatest extent possible, the schedule will be built around the cast’s availability. No additional conflicts will be accepted after casting, and no conflicts will be accepted for performance dates or the week before opening. The only way we would consider performance conflicts would be if we were to double-cast a role; this is not currently the intent, but it is not impossible. Please just be upfront with us, and we will afford you the same courtesy.

Post-audition feedback will not be given.

This is an “open”call. All roles open. Non-Equity, NO PAY.

ALL ETHNICITIES ARE WELCOME TO AUDITION, BUT MANY OF THE ROLES ARE OF “LATIN-DESCENT”. Knowledge of Spanish/Español is a plus but not a requirement.

NO PERFORMANCE CONFLICTS WILL BE ACCEPTED
