Solo Clinic 

Students who wish to  audition for any  of the  solos  must  attend  the  audition clinic from 9-10 AM.  The clinic is very  important and fun and helpful to prepare  you for your audition day! 

Auditions

There are over 60 solo spots in the  show. We encourage everyone to audition!

When is my Auditon Time?

5th grade auditions are from 10 AM-11 AM

6th grade auditions are from 11 Am-noon.

Singers will  sing wo songs from the list below the same day as the clinic.  They may  be  asked  to sing again during  that SAME time. 

Don't forget- there is a dance rehearsal later in the day!

What do I sing?

For  the  audition, we have  selected 6 solos. See below. Some of them are not actulal solos in the show, but they help us put the right performer in the  right solo.

Student will sing 2 of the 6 solos for their audition. They pick the two solos. 

It should be memorized.  Pick your two favorites. It is highly likely you will get a solo from a song you did not audition for. Please be flexible.

Who judges the auditions?

We have a guest clinician and judge for the auditions, Mrs. Tabitha Ibarra!

She is a wonderful perfomer and choreogrpaher and will really help you in the clinic to be  comfortable and  confident in your audition.

How do auditions work?

You will sing on a microphone.

We will play the background tracks and you get to sing!

Any thing else?

All auditions will be done with the track without the voices.

There are  no  alternate dates to audition.
