The Paper Mill Playhouse Broadway Show Choir will be led by a professional staff of artists including; Shayne Austin Miller (Director), Meg Zervoulis (Music Director), Jennifer Forziati-Dacosta (Choreographer), Lisa Cooney (Paper Mill Playhouse Director of Education), Mickey McNany (Paper Mill Playhouse Theatre School Director) and Carrie Rubino (Associate Director of Educational Programs).

If you want to audition, you need to prepare a pop/rock song or upbeat musical theater piece of approximately 32 bars (no more than one verse and chorus) that best demonstrates your vocal range. Bring sheet music, in your key, in a binder or single sheets taped together that contain full piano accompaniment, not just chord symbols. An accompanist will be provided. Students may not perform a cappella or to an audio recording.

Everyone will be asked to dance. Students will be taught a dance combination, which will then be performed in small groups. Evaluation will be based on skill, potential and the ability to learn the routine. Please wear or bring suitable footwear for your dance audition.

Call back auditions will be Sunday, February 10 at 8 p.m. The Paper Mill Playhouse is located at 22 Brookside Drive in Millburn.
