This week, the CDC announced a recommendation to require masking for all indoor activities for those in “Substantial Transmission” areas regardless of vaccination status. Since Santa Clara county is in a “Substantial Transmission” area and because South Bay Musical Theatre prioritizes the health and safety of our patrons and theater community, we have decided to not hold in person auditions and ask everyone interested in auditioning to do VIDEO SUBMISSIONS. We are being proactive on canceling the in-person option to give our auditioners ample time to prepare and record. Thank you for understanding. At this time, callbacks will still be held in person with small groups on Aug 14 & 15 from 10 am to 2 pm.

INSTRUCTIONS for Submission:
Video-recorded audition submissions due: Sunday August 8, 2021 by noon. 
  • Please record: a 1-2 minute song, about 32-48 bars. We are looking for dynamic performers. Please, show off!
  • Please give a brief introduction of yourself: include your name, song title, and tell us a bit about yourself and why this show interests and excites you.
  • Record introduction and song and upload to a video sharing site (e.g., Google Drive, YouTube, Vimeo, etc.).
