Auditions will consist of singing a short excerpt from “Hey There” from The Pajama Game which will be taught at the audition as well as a cold read of a provided monologue.
The excerpt from “Hey There” is the second verse with the lyrics–
Better forget her
Her with her nose in the air
She has dancing on a string
Break it and she won’t care
Won’t take this advice
I hand you like a brother
Or are you not seeing things too clear
Are you too much in love to hear
Is it all going in one ear
And out the other
