Patience Audition Pack

Please note: If you are interested in a particular role(s), please become familiar with the dialogue labelled for the character(s) you want to be considered for. Memorisation is not necessary, though you should be able to read the lines the way the character would say them; you may hold the dialogue sheets, or the score with dialogue, but you don’t want to bury your face in the page as you audition!

The songs on the list for each character are suggestions for audition pieces, however you may sing another character’s song as long as it is in your vocal range.
