Please prepare 16 to 32 bars of a song that demonstrates your best vocal ability that is not from Bonnie & Clyde. Make sure your sheet music is in the proper key and your cuts clearly marked for the accompanist. Vocalizing will also take place to determine vocal range. Monologues are not necessary-acting ability will be judged by the "selling" of your song. There will not be a dance audition. 

Callbacks will include singing songs from the show and performing cold readings from the script.

​Please note: Footlighters’ top priority is to provide a safe and healthy environment for all participants. Therefore, we are respectfully requiring that all non-vaccinated people who audition wear a face mask. Footlighters will have face masks available for those that do not have their own.
