Audition Information

Oregon Straw Hat Players will hold auditions for Sondheim on Sondheim on Sunday, May 21 at 6 pm and Monday, May 22 at 7 pm in the Oregon High School Chorus Room (behind the auditorium). Please enter through Door #7, located near the corner of N Perry Pkwy and E Lincoln St.

Auditioners should prepare a song no longer than one minute. Please pick something that you know well and that shows off your ability. If you have a Sondheim song that fits those criteria, that's nice. If you have a song that's included in the show, that's even nicer.

Auditions are open to high schoolers and adults.

This show focuses on the music and lyrics, so there will be no dance or readings as part of the audition. If time permits, we hope to teach selected passages from the score in order to try out combinations.

For questions or more information please email the director at director@oshponline.org.
