Unified Auditions are an opportunity for select university theatre programs throughout the country to conduct simultaneous auditions and interviews for admissions. To help our students prepare for their future college auditions, Paramount School of the Arts will be hosting a Mock Unified Audition Day on Saturday, December 11th from 10am-4pm. The day will start with a 90 minute group dance call, followed by solo auditions for monologues and songs. Students will receive immediate and individual feedback on their audition. We will wrap up the event with a Question and Answer Open Forum. Students are encouraged to bring a notebook to write down any feedback given.

The cost for this event is $40 for any current PSA students and $50 for any non-current PSA Student. If you have purchased our Pre-Screen/Audition Coaching Package, this opportunity is free for you.

What to Prepare

Introduction (“Slate”)

Please be prepared to slate at the beginning of both your song and monologue portion of your audition. 

The proper slate for a song is to share your name, the song title, and show in which it appears.

The proper slate for a monologue is to share your name, the title of the play, and the playwright.


Each song cut should be 60-90 seconds.Students must sing to musical accompaniment, an accompanist will be provided. Please make sure to bring your sheet music for the accompanist. No “a cappella” singing (meaning singing without music).

-Option A

One song should be written before 1970. This song can be either the “uptempo” or the “ballad” (student’s choice). One song should be written after 1970 and contrast the style of the first.

-Option B

Both songs should be from contemporary musicals (any musical written after 1970) and contrast in style (“ballad” and “uptempo”).


Please prepare one contemporary monologue (written after 1900), 60-90 seconds in length

Monologues must be from a published play and cannot be from musicals, television shows, or movies.
