Musical Theatre 

Songs and Monologues
  • Two contrasting songs that show both your acting and vocal range and ability: One up tempo and one ballad. 

  • One of those selections should feature the entire song while the second should be a 32 bar cutting (which number is in its entirety and which is a cutting is the candidate’s choice).  Selections should be memorized for performance.

  • Please know the shows from which you are choosing the songs to show your understanding of the character and motivations behind the song.
  • A one-minute monologue fully-realized and memorized.


  • Prepare a 20 to 30 second jazz or musical theatre combination, original or from MT repertoire
  • Perform a double pirouette
  • Perform a triple time step
