Auditions take place at Escondido Christian School
All participating 5th-8th graders will take part in the audition process in order to be cast in the show. This is all part of the learning process and we really try to make it fun!
All students will sing their songs by themselves in front of the direction team only. The audition room is very positive and calm and we desire to make it a "no pressure" and "fun" environment.
Each student has the choice of singing a song from this show or another musical theater style song. We prefer choosing a song from the current show which are listed under the "audition songs" tab. We will provide the song accompaniment for the show songs. If you sing your own song, please bring your own accompaniment music.
After auditions the casting process begins. Every student who auditions will be cast and no role is more important than another role. Every single character and person are important and necessary in a musical!! The direction team puts in many hours, and much prayer, determining who is best suited for each role.
Please bring your audition card & forms with you to your audition(these forms will be handed out at the parent meeting). Remember to attach a current headshot (can be a school photo or a simple printout) to your card. Photos will not be returned after the auditions.
