Singing...

Most times for musicals you will be asked to sing. Some musicals allow for those who don't sing. High School
Musical, for instance, has several roles that don't sing or only sing in groups.

Here are some Singing TIPS:

1. Be ready. Don't act surprised that you are being asked to sing. If you know a song from the show sing it, if not be ready to sing one of your favorite songs.

2. Don't say, "I can't sing." Everyone can sing. It's just a question of how well. Frankly it annoys directors more when you refuse to sing than if you aren't a great singer.

3. Sing loudly. Don't worry if someone hears you. As long as the casting committee can hear you forget about everyone else.

4. *For Those who can Dance* Dance while you sing to show you can multi task or to disguise you mediocre singing.
