THE 2023 STRAWHAT AUDITIONS ARE BY VIDEO SUBMISSION ONLY. Recommendations on preparation, audition material, and self-tape guidelines are provided in our Premium Content section for registered applicants.
ABOUT THE AUDITION TYPES
Musical Theatre Performers Your StrawHat audition package should be no longer than ninety seconds total: a brief musical selection and a monologue. Q: “Can I do two songs?” Please see our FAQs for our position on this question.
Dancers Who Sing should have extensive dance training (10 years+) in multiple disciplines and musical theatre experience or aspirations. Your StrawHat video should consist of your best 16 bars of an up-tempo musical theatre song. Dancers should also post a reel of dance performance footage under Additional Reel.
Monologue Only auditions should consist of two contrasting pieces no longer than ninety seconds total. The vast majority of member theatres are casting musicals, and in the past the number of theatres seeking to hire non-musical talent has averaged only about 1/3 of registered companies.
Detailed guidelines and instructions on taping your StrawHat package, as well as the Virtual Dance Call, can be found in the Premium Content section of the website.
