Step 1: Read your audition details

Please read your audition details carefully, as they sometimes specify the type of song they’d like to hear (a ballad, something uptempo, etc.). Make sure to select a song that’s appropriate for your specific casting call.


Step 2: Get to know the show

In casting calls, they often ask for you to be “familiar with the show”. And even if it’s not requested, it’s generally assumed. One way to do this is by listening to the Fugitive Songs cast album➝.


Step 3: Pick an audition song

Next, based on your personality and vocal type, choose a suitable song from the list below! Since Fugitive Songs can be a bit more flexible with casting, I’ll be sorting the songs by vocal type rather than by a specific character.
