The Video Audition Process

For this production's auditions, we would like auditioning students to submit a video that includes the following

  1. slate:

    A slate is a basic introduction of who you are for the audition panel.
    Please have your student say the following about themselves:

    My name is _________.
    I am ________ years old.
    I am ________ tall.
    Tell my favorite joke (even if it's a knock knock joke)


  2. Song:

    We want those who audition to sing a song. The song they will be singing is "Be Our Guest"

    We prefer students to sing with background music, but if that is not possible we will accept acapella.

    The music to submit is as follows:


      "Be Our Guest”

       With voice accompaniment:

       (For practice with words - Please Sing from 0:22-1:01) - It starts and ends with "Be Our Guest"


       Without voice accompaniment:

        (Please sing from 0.22 to 1:01) - It starts and ends with "Be Our Guest"  This is what you can use

        as background music when you record your video.


Please make sure to let your student(s) know if they need help to reach out to us!  

Any questions, please contact us at

Statement and Policy

Throughout the pandemic, Eastside Theater has adhered to the State of Oregon, OHA and Multnomah County rules regarding Covid-19 protocols. Currently, there is not a mask mandate, and wearing of masks during rehearsals is optional, not required. While we are anticipating a production where masks are not going to be required, that status could always change, and if a mask mandate were to return, we would change our policy from masks being optional to masks being required.


Additionally, if there is an active Covid outbreak among the cast and/or volunteers, we may require that masks be worn during rehearsals even if there is no statewide or local mask mandate.
