WHAT TO PREPARE? 

  1. Review the audition packet: Follies Audition Packet
  2. Complete audition form prior to auditions: https://forms.gle/xMuhJ1svQV4wsKDB6
  3. Those auditioning are asked to prepare 16 measures of a Sondheim song, which can be from the show, and have music available for the accompanist.  No A Cappella please.  You will be taught a simple dance routine and there will be cold readings from the script.  The readings will be given at the time of auditions. Here is a great resource for preparing a song for auditions: https://www.pianotrax.com/musical/follies
