Performing Academy and STARS 2000 are committed to the health of our community.  In the spirit of keeping everyone healthy and safe we have reluctantly decided to suspend in-person auditions for Cinderella, and are requesting everyone submit a video audition.

Please submit no later than Monday March 24th.

Tips and directions:

  1. Video using an iPhone or other smartphone 
  2. At the beginning of your video, say your name and the name of your vocal selection. (up to 32 bars of a musical theatre song)  Perform just as you would at a normal audition. 
  3. Accompaniment/karaoke tracks can easily be found online, contact us if you need help.
  4. It is not necessary, however if you want a to hire a professional accompanist/coach to help you prepare your video and need a recommendation please let us know.
  5. Upload your video to YouTube (MUST BE SET TO UNLISTED), if you don’t know how to do this, HERE is a tutorial 
  6. Make sure the video title has your complete name 
  7. Once uploaded email share link to
  8. Also, please send your completed audition form (download HERE), résumé, and headshot.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will hopefully be able to schedule in-person callbacks for late April.

Thank you and we are looking forward to a wonderful production this summer!
