Step 1: Read your audition details

Step 2: Get to know the show

In casting calls, they often ask for you to be “familiar with the show”. And even if it’s not requested, it’s generally assumed. One way to do this is to read through the synopsis while listening to the Everybody’s Talking About Jamie cast album.

Step 3: Pick an audition song

Next, based on your personality and vocal type, decide whether you’d like to audition for the ensemble or a specific character. Keep in mind that just because you audition for a specific character doesn’t mean you will necessarily be chosen for that role.

There’s usually a spot on the audition form where you will be asked if you are open to being in the ensemble or accepting a different role. I would suggest ticking that box and taking whatever you are offered. Every The role is important, and being in a show provides you with valuable experience.

And on that same note, even if you audition for the ensemble (and not a specific character), there’s always a chance you might get chosen for a leading/supporting role!

To summarize, keep an open mind and try not to take the process too seriously. And when you’re ready, choose the song that you feel most comfortable with from the list below.
