AUDITIONS

Auditions for a spot in Millard West Show Choirs are an exciting time and are just around the corner! All potential show choir members go through the audition process, whether a newcomer to Millard West Show Choirs or a returning member.

A series of clinics will be held at Millard West High School the week of auditions. At these clinics, interested students will learn the music and choreography to be performed at the audition.

CHOIR/ROADIES: Roadies will audition with choir members and are required to audition, even if they are only interested in participating in Millard West Show Choirs as a roadie. (Jump to choir audition details below).

BAND MEMBERS will also have auditions during the week and will have their own required audition tune to play. (Jump to band audition details below).

MUSICAL participants will also be trying out at this time and can try out for both show choir and musical or just musical only. Please see instructions in the audition packet and be sure to download the Musical Information Packet and Handbook. (Jump to musical audition details below).
