  • Pay the audition fee online through your student portal slc.me: The cost of the audition is $50.00 PREPAID. The charge will be added to your St. Lawrence College account on slc.me and you must pay online by credit card or debit by the Thursday before your audition date. If payment isn't received by this deadline, you will be removed from the audition list and will need to register for another audition date.

2. Register for your audition with Janet Venn-Jackson.

3. Prepare for your in-person audition.

  • Be prepared to sing two songs; one ballad and one up tempo. Choose something that is appropriate to your character, personality type, and age. Bring your sheet music with you. An accompanist will be provided. Please do not bring a CD, tape, or instrument.
  • Prepare a 1 ½ minute monologue of your choice. The monologue should be from a contemporary play that is age appropriate and not longer than a minute and a half.
  • Your audition will include one short dance combination in a group that will be taught to you at the beginning of your audition by our choreographer. Be sure to dress accordingly.
