Auditions for this musical are open to both children and adults.

For the audition, we ask that you review the Roles document and be ready to do the following:

  • Recite the line(s) specified in the document (for all characters for whom you wish to audition)
  • Sing a song (with which you feel comfortable)

Please try to memorize the lines of the characters you plan to audition for. It is not necessary, but really helps you ‘become’ the characters you feel drawn to when auditioning.

To get a ‘feel’ for the songs we will be using in the play, check out a Pioneer Drama Service (in the website, click ‘Plays and Musicals’ and enter ‘The Secret Garden’ in the ‘Keywords’ field).
