    • If the show is a musical, the choreographer will teach the group a simple dance routine to see how well the actors move
    • If the show is a musical, the music director will have each actor sing a portion of a song without accompaniment. In addition, actors may be asked to do scales.
    • If the actor has been asked to prepare a monologue – each actor will stand up and perform their monologue for the production staff.
    • The director may ask the actors to improvise a scene or read from the script.
