This revue is comprised of thirty show-stopping musical numbers from stage and film, including classics from Chicago, Cabaret, Kiss of the Spider Woman, Funny Lady and New York, New York.

First auditions will involve an interview and singing only. Please prepare one Broadway song – ballad or up-tempo, your choice. A Kander & Ebb composition is preferred, but not required. An accompanist will be provided if you are bringing sheet music. Backing tracks on USB sticks or CDs may also be played. A brief dance routine will be learned and performed at callbacks. To enable our audition accompanist to become familiar with your music in advance, we would encourage you, if possible, to email a PDF of your sheet music in the key to be performed to musical director Barb Brolly at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, January 13.
