Interested students will have from October 10th to November 8th to submit their videos. All videos are due on Sunday, November 8th on Flipgrid. Directions for how to prepare and submit your videos are listed below:

2. Practice all audition materials

 

3. When you are ready, record videos of yourself performing all audition requirements on Flipgrid by Sunday, November 8th.

  • Go to flipgrid.com

  • Enter the following Join Code: 0ab35779

  • Record your videos!

    • Please record a separate video for acting, singing, and dancing

    • Please label them with your full name and what you are performing in the video. Example: Abby Reeder Singing

 

Audition Tips:

 

  • Each student auditioning for the show should have a total of three videos submitted on Flipgrid. One for singing, one for acting, and one for dancing. Make sure that you have submitted all three by Sunday, November 8th. Anything submitted after November 8th or with any missing elements will not be considered.

 

  • For your acting video, choose whether you would like to play Moana or Maui. Have someone in your house play the other part. For example, if you would like to play Maui, have someone in your house play Moana. If you would like to play Moana, have someone in your house play Maui. Practice reading your part while they read the other part. When you are recording your video, continue to have them read their part but make sure they are not in view of the camera.  Pretend that you are performing this scene on stage and really act it out!

 

  • The section of “We Know the Way” that we are asking you to sing features some Samoan lyrics. Listen to the recording for how to pronounce the words. If you need any help, please reach out to the production team. With this audition information, you received a practice track of “We Know the Way” with vocals and a performance track without vocals. Rehearse the song with the practice track and record your performance with the performance track (without guide vocals) so that we can hear your voice alone! Same as with your acting video, pretend you are onstage and really act it out!

 

  • For your choreography video, please play “We Know the Way Dance Cut” while you are recording your video.

 

  • Callbacks are to be determined. We will decide if we need them after all auditions are submitted. You will be contacted directly with more information if it is determined that we need callbacks.
