Auditions for Under the Arch Incubator


The Arch Incubator announces auditions, both for their first cabaret event, November 7 at the Monocle, and for future events as well. Auditions will be held Sunday September 15, 2019, from 4-8pm by appointment and walk-in at The Monocle, 4510 Manchester Ave (63110). The Incubator will also be accepting video submissions for actors unable to attend the audition, through Friday, September 13, 2019.

For the audition, actors are asked to prepare 1.) a short monologue (no more than 3 minutes) in any style; and 2.) 32 bars of a song of your choosing that represents your voice the best. Actors may be asked to sing more than one piece and should bring additional prepared songs. Actors should also bring a headshot or recent photo and a resume. (It is okay if this is your first experience! We are excited to share that with you!)

For video submissions please submit the above materials as well as a second 32-bar song selection that contrasts the first selection in both genre and tempo. (Example: if the first selection is a slow country ballad, the second selection could be an up-tempo musical theatre patter song. Please send all materials in one email with subject “Video Submission-YOUR NAME-DATE” to

The cabaret will be directed by Incubator founder Wilson Webell, and music directed by Tia Spencer.

All questions about the audition and requests for appointments should be addressed to Wilson Webel, director of the Incubator, at
