How to Audition

If interested in auditioning, take note of the following:

  1. Please CLICK HERE to sign up for your audition slot.
  2. Your initial audition will be held as a 10-minute individual appointment in person at QCT. During this time, you will sing a song that you have prepared ahead of time. You need only sing approx. 60 seconds of a song (16-32 measures). 
  3. You are encouraged to have your audition song memorized and to bring sheet music for the piano accompanist. If you would rather sing to an accompaniment track, a Bluetooth speaker will be provided. Select a song that is in the style of Little House… (Think folk or Americana, or Broadway musicals like SHENANDOAH, LITTLE WOMEN, BIG RIVER, TUCK EVERLASTING) You are welcome to sing from the show, if you’d like.
  4. After you sing your prepared audition song, you will read selections from the script, which will be assigned to you at that moment. As the audition dates draw near, check the website and QCT’s social media channels for the specific pages that may be used.
