Deadline to submit:
There is no specific deadline to submit but audition spaces are limited. Submit early to ensure a space. After submitting you will be contacted by KAS to schedule your specific audition time.
All musical auditioners should prepare a short song (approx. 16 bars) from a Broadway musical that showcases your voice—please NO songs from the shows being presented. An accompanist will be provided, please bring a clean, clear copy of your piano music in a binder. No a capella or vocal track auditions please.
All auditioners should prepare a short (one-minute) monologue. Please know your material well enough to do some easy improvisation work using the text of your piece. You may not get to perform the entire piece. Please do research on the shows that you are auditioning for. Scenes may be found on the Internet as well as music through iTunes or other sources.
KAS 2014-15 season includes many interesting roles, both principal and ensemble, for both men and women. There is opportunity for casting individuals from a wide range of ages and ethnicities. The majority of cast members will be expected to sing and move well but there are roles available for actors that are strictly acting roles and do not require singing or movement.
Please ensure that once you commit to a callback that if you receive the role or ensemble you will accept it. Therefore, if you have five callbacks and attend all five, you would take all five shows if cast.
Most of all—have fun and break a leg!
