(Note: YouTube has plenty of great backing tracks for free!)Yes, you can go over the 16 bars, but we will stop the video right at 16, so be sure you don't include extra music at the beginning. 

We'd love hear you introduce yourself with the following:

  • Your song choice

  • Your dream role (from any show)
