Auditioners must prepare a song from a musical other than Kinky Boots. Auditioners may sing a song of their choice, but not a song from Kinky Boots. We encourage those auditioning for lead roles to sing pieces in more of a rock or pop style, very energetic.

We will have the ability to play recorded accompaniment through a CD player, MP3 player, iPhone, or Android. (There are many instrumental tracks available on YouTube and iTunes.) A piano will also be available if you wish to bring your own accompanist, however an accompanist will NOT be provided. If you are using a karaoke track from YouTube or similar, we recommend downloading it before your audition to avoid any issues if you are unable to access the Internet during your audition.

Actors must bring a non-returnable photo.
