Your audition should include:

2nd-5th graders only need to prepare one piece. Less than 1 1/2 minutes.

TIPS ABOUT FILMING YOUR AUDITIONS

Film your audition using a phone (shoot it horizontally), tablet, computer, camera, etc. and add it to the folder Make sure there is a blank background behind you and the lighting is good.  Hang a sheet behind you if you don’t have a blank wall.  The entire audition must be in one take:  Intro, songs or monologues.  However you can re-do it as many times as you want to get it the way you like it.

For accompaniment you may find tracks online using youtube, use the piano trax app, or email Fred Cobb [email protected] a copy of your music (clearly marked where you start and stop) and he will record it and send it back to you.

But remember, it doesn’t have to be super fancy, you will be adjudicated on your talent NOT your filmmaker skills.  Scholarship money is more important then ever right now and we’re hoping this will increase the participation because you can do it anytime between now and May 2nd.

 

Upload your audition to the scholarship auditions folder by May 2nd

 

The adjudicators:

Leigh Selting- head of Theatre and Dance at the University of Wyoming

They will watch all the videos and make their selections based on the criteria of the submissions and not the quality of the recording, so go for it!
