Student Cabaret Night features a range of OFC students showing off their talents through solos, duets, and group numbers. There is no cost to participate, however there will be a cost for tickets for parents, friends, and family to attend the performance. Selections of what will be performed will be sent out right after auditions, with time to prep prior to rehearsals beginning.
We are looking for students who are self-motivated and have performed in the past and are "bound for Broadway!" We encourage all ages to apply (as young as 7 to 18). Please note we can only accept a limited number of students, not all who audition will be cast in the cabaret. For the auditions, students should prepare a short 32-bar (30sec-1min) musical theatre song and bring accompaniment MP3 recording (not sheet music). We will have a speaker to play your music from. Please note, multiple students can select the same audition time slot.

A Personal Interview has always also been a part of the Audition Process. ROC City Singers is a close-knit, extremely supportive group of highly talented performing artists. In accepting new members, I consider not only the ability of the artist, but equally as important, I consider an individual’s integrity, work ethic, and his/her/their desire to be a vital team player. This being said, please be prepared with a very BRIEF STATEMENT of WHY you would like to be a member of the ROC City Singers, as well as HOW you hope it will help you to grow, both personally and artistically. In addition, please think about what you feel you would contribute to the group.
If you are unable to attend this Audition, please submit the Audition Materials before July 9, 2022 to: firstname.lastname@example.org Please also include your Statement of Intent with the Audition Materials.
ROC City Singers is a very diverse group of high school students, generally 26 in number, from up to 17 different schools and 5 counties, most of whom are aspiring to careers in the Performing Arts. Our Repertoire is mostly Broadway based, with Pop and Jazz included. We are also very fortunate to work with a variety of local choreographers. Voice, Acting and Dance Training and Technique are an integral part of every rehearsal session.
Rehearsals are on Sunday evenings throughout the school year. Limited summer rehearsals are scheduled as well. In addition to approximately 15-20 performances per year, in a “healthy” year, the Group also participates in a Series of Master Classes, with Broadway artists including Kara Lindsay, Kevin Massey, and Evan Harrington. We also schedule a Session with a Big-name Broadway Talent Agency, and conduct a College Audition Prep & Financial Advisement Session, early in the Fall. We also assist with all College Audition Prep and Filming for Pre-screens.
Please feel free to contact Judith, via email, with any additional questions.
