To audition for these shows you must prepare a Broadway style song, something from church, or school. Absolutely no pop music is to be used as an audition song nor is Happy Birthday appropriate. You do not need to bring any piano sheet music, but can bring a karaoke style CD if you wish to be accompanied. It should not contain lead vocals.
