For Musical Theatre, your video submission should contain the following:

    • Personal information: First and Last name, age, grade that you are auditioning into?​

    • Why do you want to attend SDSCPA?

    • Is there anything else you would like us to know about you?

    • What monologue will you be performing?

  2.  ​One (1) monologue performed by the student.

    • The monologue should be from a play if possible, between 1 to 2 minutes and age appropriate.

    • For your performance:

      • Have the camera on your eyeline.​

      • Look slightly above or off to the left or right of the camera.

      • "You have nothing to prove, only to share."

    • If you do not have a monologue already, here are some suggestions: THEATRE MONOLOGUES

  3. One (1) song performed by the student, either a cappella, or with accompaniment - live or digital.  (See YouTube for background music tracks.)

    • Make sure you are louder than your accompaniment.​

    • Your chosen song should be age appropriate.

    • The song you sing should be 60 to 90 seconds long.

    • Musical Theatre selections are preferable, but not mandatory.

If you do not have an idea for a song - select something you already know and love.  For example, songs from Disney musical films, or from the popular mainstream.​
