Principal Auditions | Pre-booked audition slot
Principals will need to book a 10-minute audition slot between 10am-12pm or 2.30-6.30pm by emailing us. Owing to high demand and the quality of Talentz productions, we will not consider casting anyone taking a leading role in another production with an overlapping rehearsal period. Please bring a prepared musical theatre / pop rock song with sheet music for the pianist. Please make sure you know the song from memory, it shows your range and is fitting with the style of the show. Visit our audition tips page for more help.
