Singin' in the Rain Jr: Audition Instructions


Actors should choose from one of the following:

  1. prepare a comedic monologue no longer than one minute. The monologue can be from any musical or play, but cannot be from Singin in the Rain
  2. prepare a reading from your favorite book or fairy tale. The reading should be funny and lighthearted.


Actors will learn a brief portion of the song “Singin' in the Rain” from Singin' in the Rain Jr. during the audition. The song will be taught in a group by the music director. Actors will then be expected to sing individually with the piano accompaniment.

Feel free to listen to the song at home and practice before your audition. Please start at 55 seconds.


Let the stormy clouds chase
everyone from the place,
come on with the rain I’ve a smile on my face,
I'll walk down the lane, with a happy refrain
just singin' in the rain, singin' in the rain
