Initial audtions for all Season2021 shows will be held via video submission. All videos must be submitted by 11:59 pm, December 20, 2020 to be considered.

In order to audition, please follow the steps below:

  1. Register to audition.
    1. Prospective auditioners must sign up for an audition time by filling out the on-line registration form linked to at the bottom of this page.
    2. As part of the registration process, you will be given the opportunity to indicate the number of shows you are willing to be cast in, and whether or not you are willing to do back-to-back shows. You will also be able to indicate which shows you are interested in by ranking them in priority order (with 1 being the most interested and 5 being the least interested), and what shows you are not available for. The more shows you are available for, the more likely you will be to be cast. It is critical that you accurately indicate your availability and preferences on the form, as the on-line database will be the only source used for this information while we are casting.
    3. You will then be given a list of the roles in the shows you are available for which match your age and gender. You will be given the opportunity to indicate which roles you are particularly interested in. We reserve the right to cast you in whatever role we feel best meets the needs of the production, but your preferences will be taken into consideration.
    4. Children must be turning 7 in 2021, or be a previous company member to be eligible to audition. Children should register and send in an audition video, just like adults.
    5. Each performer must upload a current photo of themselves with their audition registration.
    6. No roles in 2021 are “pre-cast.” That means that every role is open and available on the day of auditions. Dream big. Go for the roles you want.
    7. Roles at the top level of the MTI (leads) are very competitive. First year participants are 100% as likely to get a lead role as an MTI veteran. The best person for the role gets the role, regardless of how many years they have been in the company.
    8. The MTI audition process, and participation in the company is much like an athletic event. Sportsmanship is required and expected. We do not promote a star system and one show’s “star” might be the next show’s ensemble member. Even at auditions we remain supportive and kind to others in the process. We have never had an audition (in 23 years!) that wasn’t a very positive, learning and caring process.
    9. The link to register for auditions is at the bottom of this instruction page.

  2. Choose Your Audition Song(s)

    Choose your audtion song from this list. You must sing a song from this list. You may sing up to 2 songs, but keep in mind that your audition video cannot surpass 3 minutes total, including your introduction. It is highly recommended to sing the part of the song that best shows off your vocal ability.

  3. Download your audition materials

    Download the materials for the song(s) you will be singing from this link. You must sing with the track found in the materials folder.

  4. Rehearse your audition song

  5. Rehearse your introduction

    Please start your video with an introduction. Please include the following information:

    1. Full name
    2. Age
    3. What song(s) you will be singing
    4. Any other important skills we should know about

  6. Record your audition video

    Have someone help you record your video. This can be done on any smartphone, digital camera, or webcam. The higher the quality of the audio, the better.
