Audition Information

  • All roles are open; diversity is encouraged. TAP values diversity in race, physical ability, gender, sexuality, socio-economic background, age, and body type. Anyone who sees a little of themselves in one of these characters is welcome and warmly encouraged to audition. The character descriptions indicate the age or gender that the character should appear onstage and do not need to match the age or gender identity of the performer. Please note that a few of these roles require some physical intimacy onstage, and TAP has hired an Intimacy Choreographer for this production.
  • Please prepare 16-32 bars of a musical theater selection. (Sondheim pieces are welcome) that highlights both your vocal range, and your ability to act through a song.
  • There are no roles for children. All actors must be 18 or older.
