Audition cuts can be from the show or in the style of the show. Cuts should showcase voice and range, please be familiar/comfortable with your audition cut. If anyone is interested in running their music cuts with Evan Whitfield, accompanist for auditions and music director, he will be available the weekend and week before auditions. Music should be in plastic sheet protectors in a small binder. Chord changes over the music are helpful, especially if music is in a wild sharp or flat key, like C# maj, or Cb maj. If transposing a song, please make it an easy sight-readable key. Contact Evan at email@example.com to set up a time to run your audition cut or with any questions.
