We'd like to see YOU being that character!  Say some lines from the movie or make them up.  Also, please sing us a few lines from one of the songs in the movie or musical, or if you prefer, sing us a few lines of another song you like. 

Some song suggestions include Where You Are, How Far I'll Go, You're Welcome, Shiny. You can find karaoke versions of songs to use for background music online as well.

Also, please make up some dance moves to do while you sing or show us a short dance sequence, like 8 counts to different music.

Audition should be between 30 seconds to 2 minutes. If you have trouble uploading your video because the file is too big, try uploading it in parts. Like, acting part 1. Singing and dancing part 2..
