  • Their video audition with song and reading (please see details below)
  • Headshot and resume
  • Electronically completed audition form

Youth Audition Video Requirements

  • Jojo song cut - measures 18 through 41 (Sheet music here; Piano backing track here
  • Dr. Seuss Lorax section (Click here)

Please record these two items together (cell phone or tablet video is perfectly fine) keeping the total video length as close to two minutes as possible. The video will need to be uploaded to a share site (such as youtube or vimeo). The link from this site will be necessary for uploading to your audition submission. If you have any questions regarding the audition process please contact sara@prescottpark.org

Set Videos to "Unlisted"

If you want to showcase your video to more than just a select 20 people, but don't want the video listed to everyone in public, then you'll want to set your videos to "unlisted." What this means is that anyone with the direct web address can watch the video, but without this address the video is impossible to find. They don't show up on your YouTube channel, in search results, or anywhere else on the site.  If you want to set your videos to unlisted, follow these steps:

  • Visit your Video Manager
  • Find the video you'd like to set to private and click the Edit button
  • In the "Privacy Settings" drop down menu, select Unlisted
  • Click Save Changes
