Tips on Preparing your Audition

Roles in this virtual musical production:

Troy Bolton
Troy Bolton, the most popular kid at East High, is the star of the basketball team who yearns to be more than what people want him to be. Troy discovers he loves to sing, but is afraid to admit it to his friends. This performer must be able to convey the full range of emotions and character traits Troy Bolton embodies: athletic, independent, sometimes shy, smitten with Gabriella, a true leader. Troy must able to sing from his heart in a naïve yet convincing manner. He should also be able to move like a natural athlete while dancing and singing.
Gender: Male
Vocal range top: Bb4
Vocal range bottom: Eb3

Jack Scott
Jack Scott is the nerdy school announcer who trips over his own feet. This performer should be able to portray a "gift of gab" radio voice. Jack can be quirky in all aspects: looks, dress and comportment. This role requires a character actor with superior diction and good comic timing.
Gender: Male

Chad Danforth
Chad Danforth is a hot-wired jock, second in command to Troy. He is focused on winning his school's basketball championship, but is slowly understanding that there might be more to this world, including his sparring crush on Taylor. This performer has a couple of solos and large number of acting scenes.
Gender: Male
Vocal range top: G4
Vocal range bottom: C3

Ryan Evans
Ryan Evans is Sharpay's fraternal twin and a star in the making. This character loves singing, dancing and lots of attention. He follows Sharpay's orders, but wants to break free from her shadow. This role requires a "triple threat": strong singer, dancer and actor. Everything Ryan does is calculated and executed impeccably. 

Gender: Male
Vocal range top: F#4
Vocal range bottom: F#3

Zeke Baylor
Zeke Baylor is a basketball player on the Wildcats Team. He has two secrets: a crush on Sharpay and a love for baking! Zeke and Chad are the most prominent of Troy's friends. Zeke has solos, so this performer must sing as well as act.
Gender: Male
Vocal range top: G4
Vocal range bottom: G3

Gabriella Montez
Gabriella Montez is the new girl in school. Gabriella is intelligent, pretty ("girl next door" type) and shy. She possesses a fantastic voice when she sings with Troy. Performer must be able to take positive risks with both her acting and singing. She must be able to portray her intelligence and independence and then easily switch over to her shy and vulnerable side. Actress must have a strong sense of pitch and the ability to hold her own with (and without!) a partner in order to make the most of this role. 
Gender: Female
Vocal range top: C#5
Vocal range bottom: A3

Taylor Mckessie
Taylor McKessie, the head Brainiac of the school, is the president of the Science Club. She wants Gabriella to join the Science Decathlon team so they can finally win the competition. Taylor has a hidden soft spot for Chad, which might be why she is always making fun of him. Performer must portray Taylor's assertiveness as well as sing a solid solo.
Gender: Female

Vocal range top: C5
Vocal range bottom: G3

Sharpay Evans
Sharpay Evans is the egocentric star of the school musicals. She is Ryan's older twin (and the alpha dog of the two) and has a mad crush on Troy. Sharpay has never met a mirror she didn't like. Performer must be able to portray a diva and have solid acting chops and strong singing and dancing skills. Sharpay knows how to work a crowd.
Gender: Female
Vocal range top: D5
Vocal range bottom: A3

Martha Cox
Martha Cox is a proud member of the Science Club and is brainy with a secret love of dancing. She has a fun-loving sidekicky personality and becomes an adoring devotee of Gabriella. Performer should be able to portray kind and funny. The role has important featured solos but the voice quality is not as important as the character. Ideally looking for a student that can show off some crazy brake dancing moves, bravo! Brava!
Gender: Female
Vocal range top: Bb4
Vocal range bottom: G3

Kelsi Nielsen
Kelsi Nielsen is a thespian rehearsal pianist and student composer extraordinaire. Underneath her shy demeanor, Kelsi has no tolerance for people (read: Sharpay) who use their talent only to be number one. This actor will play the underdog but has the intelligence and ability to shoot the "zingers" at Sharpay with timing and accuracy. Kelsi has a small solo in "We're All in This Together," but it is secondary to her acting importance. 
Gender: Female
Vocal range top: Bb4
Vocal range bottom: D4

The Ensemble makes up all the other characters who populate East High School: Jocks, Brainiacs, Thespians, Skater Dudes, Cheerleaders, Ms. Tenny, Science Decathlon Moderator, etc., with a few featured solo parts further described below. The ensemble is present throughout the show and provides the vocal power for the group numbers. These roles vary in size and in vocal, acting and dance requirements.

Ripper is a cool skater dude who is, lo and behold, a cello player! Performer must be able to sell this fun "double personality" with one short but sweet air cello solo!
Gender: Male
Vocal range top: G#4
Vocal range bottom: G#3

In the big Audition scene, James is the auditionee who sings so badly off key it would scare anyone! Looking for a performer who can confidently sound bad (this is a challenge for a good musician.)
Gender: Male
Vocal range top: C#4
Vocal range bottom: A3


Susan is the "pop star wanna be" audition candidate. Looking for someone who is not afraid to go over-the-top with this short yet humorous part.

Gender: Female

Vocal range top: A4
Vocal range bottom: F4

Cathy is the auditionee who can belt like Ethel Merman! Looking for a student that can fill the room with her voice. It doesn't need to be pretty!
Gender: Female
Vocal range top: E5
Vocal range bottom: G4

Cyndra is the final auditionee and she sounds like an opera audition for the Met. Looking for a singer that can imitate an obnoxious vibrato in a serious manner.
Gender: Female
Vocal range top: F5
Vocal range bottom: Ab4
