Opportunity for Video Auditions
We generally visit performing arts schools, middle and high schools for the performing arts, choral groups, dance schools and musical theater programs around the country and hold auditions. This provides the “best” opportunity for people to audition, have a face-to-face audition and make a great first impression!
Over the past 12 years, our 1000+ graduates have told their friends about our program. As a result, we are now getting requests for auditions from Puerto Rico, Montana and even England. Since it is unlikely that we will travel to those locations for auditions, we will accept video auditions on a limited basis. Read below about how you can prepare a video audition, what is required and how to submit your video. Again, the best way to make a great impression is in person. If this is not possible, you have the option of submitting a video.
Video Audition Requirements
There are 5 components to a video audition.
Prepare your You-tube video that is no longer then 2 minutes in length. Please introduce yourself, tell us in 30 seconds why you want to attend Destination Broadway®, what you expect to learn from the opportunity, and then sing an age appropriate song of your choice for the remainder of the time. No background vocals permitted. NO ACAPELLA AUDITIONS, PLEASE. USE AN ACCOMPANIST. Again, this should NOT be a professionally created, enhanced video. Videos should be posted on www.youtube.com. Remember, we want to see YOU, not the result of a professionally produced video.

Print Recommendation Form, give it to the person making the recommendation and have them mail it (Destination Broadway®, 712 Mobjack Place, Newport News, VA 23606).
Prepare a headshot of yourself. Make sure your name appears on the photo! This requirement is intended to be EASY and INEXPENSIVE. A headshot is exactly that…a headshot. Spending money for a professional photo is not necessary. A digital camera photo will be fine.
Submit and finalize auditionby emailing your "Audtion Form", "Headshot" and "Youtube link" to firstname.lastname@example.org.
