I assume you mean for theatre so that’s what I’ll cover.
They have two audition dates and times. For a Shakespeare work, they’ll ask you to prepare a one minute monologue from Shakespeare. For another show, they’ll just have you do cold readings from the script (they’ll let you check out a script for 24 hours so you can look over the lines and just know what’s going on). Then you’ll do a cold reading or two for different characters, they might ask you to read it a different way or something. Then they post callbacks which are usually the next day. If you’re called back they might tell you to do something specific or look over certain lines (which they will give you) or you’ll just come in and you might do more cold readings or interactions with other people in character to see how you all interact.
They’ll ask you to prepare a song to sing for the audition. You’ll also fill out a form with your schedule, your stats, experience, and conflicts. These are important. You’ll do this for plays too. You’ll go in and sing your song (you can bring sheet music or sing acapella, our music director will play with you if you have music and he’s very good). You should prepare a piece similar to the genre of the musical (era, music type, etc) but NOT a piece from the show. If you get a callback for the next day, you’ll come in, warm up, and then they’ll give you some selections from the show to sing, in quartets usually. You might do a cold reading, but I haven’t for a musical yet.
Let me know if you have any questions!
