Please dress comfortably for all auditions. 

  • What should I wear?
    Something comfortable! Make sure you can breathe and move. If you will be dancing we recommend athletic pants, dance pants or tights, a t-shirt/tank, and a sweater if needed. Jazz shoes or non-marking sneakers can be worn on the feet. Directors may request that you bring dance shoes (ex.tap or pointe shoes).
  • When should I arrive?
    Our adult vocal auditions are by appointment only. Please arrive 10-15 minutes before your scheduled time and you will be able to leave directly after. For dance and children auditions, you won't have a specific appointment time, but will be required to stay the full length of the audition. We still recommend you arrive 10-15 minutes early to prepare.
  • Will auditions be in a group, or individual?
    Children's auditions will be done entirely in a group. Adults will have an individual vocal audition with a specific time slot and a group dance audition.
  • What should I sing?
    When you register for your audition, you will be given a selection of sheet music to prepare for your vocal audition.
  • Will I have to dance at the audition?
    Those auditionning to be onstage (not pit chorus) are required to do a short dance audition where you will be taught a small piece of choreography.
  • What if this is my first time auditioning?
    Windsor Light Music Theatre strives to create a welcoming audition experience. We are always happy to see new talent come out to audition. If you act, sing, dance, or move well, and have a passion for theatre, then give it a try. Bring your enthusiasm!
  • Help! I'm nervous.
    You are not alone. You will feel a mixture of anxiety, tension and enthusiasm in the air – that’s perfectly normal! Even seasoned theatre veterans get nervous. You are not expected to perform as well as you would after months of rehearsals, and most people are too focused on their own auditions to judge you. Everyone is in the same boat. Empathy is rampant!
  • When should I expect a callback if I am chosen?
    During the first audition directors will announce a timeframe and how you will be notified about casting. It can be very difficult to wait, but don’t make any assumptions about whether or not you have been cast in the show until you get a confirmation call or e-mail from the director’s team. If you do not get cast in the show, it does not mean that you gave a bad audition. It just means that you should try again next time.
