Audition Notes from the Director Cyn Strycharz

  1. Please prep 24 bars of music to present

  2. Music does not have to be from Newsies but should be in the style of the character you are auditioning for.

  3. Select a song from musical theater – not a pop song.

  4. Be Prepared- please arrive knowing what you’re going to sing.

  5. If you want a non-singing role – that’s fine too.

  6. Project, show emotion.

  7. Have fun!!!!

Note about Casting and Commitment

Commitment to the production, which is defined as strong attendance and preparation for rehearsals, are factors that will be considered during the audition decisions.  As Starlight we strive to create a supportive environment and hope to be flexible with families’ schedules however we need a level of commitment from our cast so that we can assure all actors are prepared and all students achieve the highest level of success.
