In case you are asked to sing, prepare the ANGEL packet, which can be found on our website here.  Also bring a pop/rock/R&B song that is NOT WRITTEN FOR A MUSICAL and that shows the upper part of your range. Please also ABSOLUTELY NO MUSICAL THEATRE. Please have sheet music in the correct key. Bring your book and an up-to-date headshot and resume.


[LOLA/SIMON] Male, early 30’s, African-American. An emotionally and physically challenging role requires the body of a boxer, with the soul of a Diva to play this scene-stealing drag performer. Must have a killer voice with power blues and gospel chops. Lola dances in very high heels and so has to move well.  This role calls for a STAR. This is the Tony Award Winning role originated by actor Billy Porter.

[ANGELS] Males, 20s – 30s, any ethnicity. These are the six drag performers who populate THE BLUE ANGEL NIGHTCLUB. They need to be versatile, but also terrific dancers, singers and actors. This ain’t a job for no wall-flowers. Tumbling, acro and tricks a plus.  Will be required to dance in heels. May cover principal roles.

[MALE SWINGS] Males, 20s – early 30s, any ethnicity. To cover the onstage ensemble factory workers, the featured ensemble roles of the ANGELS, and possibly principal roles.  Must be terrific dancers, singers and actors. These are offstage tracks.

If you have a disability and would like to request reasonable accommodations, please let us know prior to the auditions.

*Please note: There will NOT be a female dance call for KINKY BOOTS.
