Audition Preparation
NOTE: We value your time and that of all actors. You may be stopped before the end of your audition. This is not a reflection of your performance only that the directors have seen or heard what they need to. If you have a specific part of your song you feel is very important, try to start near that portion so you are not stopped before reaching it.

Monologue: Please prepare a 30 second monologue.

  • Please prepare 30 seconds of a song. Your song should showcase your acting ability and skills while singing.
  • NO SONGS FROM FROZEN, but please choose a song in the same style.  No pop songs.
  • No a cappella. YOU MUST bring music with no background vocals.  No accompanist will be available. Music tracks can be found on Amazon, YouTube, iTunes, etc.
  • It is strongly recommended that you use an accompaniment track. There will be a CD player and speaker connection for MP3 players available. MP3 Player needs to have AUX cord capability.
  • Please bring your accompaniment track on your phone, a CD or an MP3 Player.
    When using a CD, please edit your track to the beginning of where you will be singing.
  • When using an MP3 Player, please edit your track or cue the track to the beginning of where you will be singing, and verify you have AUX cord capability.

What’s it like to be in a ROYAL show?

Fun! Kids and adults have a great time working together to produce a great show. Whether you’re on stage or part of the stage/tech crew you’re a valuable part of a terrific show.

Being part of a ROYAL show is a big commitment not only for the individual but for their family. Rehearsals are as frequent as 3 times per week, and for the week prior to the show we rehearse each evening at the theatre.

All the hard work is worth it and a life-long memory is yours to show for it!
