Auditions for KVPAC’s Student COMPANY
Auditions are held at KVPAC twice during the school year. Once for the Fall class semester and again for the spring.
Upon arrival, actors sign in and provide a resume (email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a resume sample) and an 8×10 headshot. (photos can be copied and returned if necessary). Actors will be called in, privately, to present the following to a panel of KVPAC directors:
- A prepared 1-2 minute monologue. For younger actors, a memorized poem may be substituted for the monologue, however characterization and dramatic delivery is strongly encouraged.
- A 16-32 measure cut of any song selection. (<– usually this is 1 verse from the beginning or end of the song, or the song’s chorus/bridge) The song may be presented a’cappella (without music) or accompanied by a CD/media-file of instrumental or karaoke music. Singing over a song with a vocal track is not accepted.
After the final round of auditions, the panel of directors will convene to review all candidates and make selections.
