Hear what Ellie has to say about her Moonified Experience:

  • Ellie Z., PPC Alum– 
    • The audition is local (Dallas), so it is close and less expensive
    • Mary Anna organizes each audition for you
    • The entire process is very laid back, organized, and well planned.
    • It is small and not overwhelming
    • 90 students at the audition vs. 600 at Unifieds
    • You get more time in the room with each school. For example, I was asked to sing my third song at almost every audition. I was able to ask questions and get to know the people in the room.
    • There is only one dance call
    • It was so nice to have an organized, relaxed, audition process before I went to Unifieds.
    • There are smaller schools that do not attend Unifieds. These schools only have on-campus auditions, so I was be able to audition for them in one place.
    • It is so fun! You bond and connect with the small group of MT students that are from all over the country!
    • LOVED this experience and it was totally worth it!

To confirm that a school will be holding auditions at Unifieds, you have to go to the theatre department website for each school and check the dates and locations for their auditions.

ADDITIONAL UNIFIED Audition Information:
You have to audition separately for each school.
Students have to sign up for an audition with each school individually. Carefully check all application and audition registration procedures, they will vary from school to school. Some schools require you to apply in order to register for an audition slot, others do not.
Some schools require video prescreens to be submitted prior to granting an audition slot.
The audition list for some schools fill up fast. Some schools run out of slots by November.
All auditions are individual, each student auditions in a small conference room in front of a panel of faculty members.
Some Musical Theatre programs hold group dance calls for Musical Theatre auditions in addition to individual auditions, sometimes on a different day from individual monologue+songs auditions.
Multiple Dance calls for each school
Some schools do have walk-in slots available, although this is not guaranteed and walk-ins are highly unlikely to be available for the top programs.
Student organizes their own schedule
For Musical Theatre, an accompanist is provided by some schools, while other schools require the student to bring their accompaniment and a device to play the accompaniment (an iPod and a battery-powered speaker dock, for example).
There are over 600 students that audition in the three-five days.
