Registrations are now closed.

All applicants entering any of Madison Square Garden Entertainment’s work locations or venues must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. To be considered “fully vaccinated,” either two weeks must have elapsed following an individual’s receipt of the second dose of a two-dose vaccine series, or two weeks must have elapsed following an individual’s receipt of a single-dose vaccine.

In accordance with applicable laws, the Company will review all requests for reasonable accommodations made by individuals who indicate that they are unable to receive a COVID-19 vaccination in connection with a medical condition, disability, or sincerely held religious belief.

While vaccine boosters are not currently required for employment with MSG, they are recommended.

Masks are welcome but not required.

If cast in the show, performers will be offered an American Guild of Variety Artists (AGVA) contract with competitive salary and benefits including 401(k) plan and year-round health insurance.

All performers must be 18 years of age by September 15, 2022 to be considered for casting. If you are under 18 years of age at the time of the audition, you will need a parent or guardian to accompany you to Radio City Music Hall at your scheduled time. If a parent or guardian cannot accompany you, please contact [email protected] to request a downloadable release form, have it signed by your parent or guardian, notarized by a notary public and bring it with you to the audition.

You must be legally authorized to work in the US and accept employment if it is offered by the Company. If you are hired, you must provide evidence of such authorization in accordance with the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. All offers of employment are pending successful completion of a background check.

Contract ranges from mid-September/early October to early January depending on which role you are cast in.

No travel or housing is provided for the performers of the show in New York.

For most for most female/non-binary roles, character heels are the preferred shoe for dancing. Please no bare feet or sock feet in the audition room.

Once you are at Radio City, you may not be allowed to leave again before the end of the audition, so please prepare accordingly. Please be aware there are no vending machines in the building.

Only auditionees are allowed into the audition room,  but if you are under the age of 18 at the time of the audition, your parent or guardian must accompany you to Radio City Music Hall.

Unless specifically indicated, we do not accept video submissions. You must audition in person.

ROLE REQUIREMENTS

Rockettes auditionees must be between 5’5″ and 5’10 ½” tall (measurements will be taken in stocking feet). Rockettes auditionees must be proficient in ballet, tap, and jazz.

Dancers must be proficient in jazz and ballet. Pointe work is a plus but not required for female/non-binary dancer roles and you may be asked about pointe work as part of your audition. All dancers will also be required to sing and will be taught a song as part of the audition. The ability to sing and dance at the same time is more important than voice quality. There is no need to prepare vocal material.

Vocalist roles submissions will be accepted through talent agents in response to published breakdowns.

CLARA/ELLIE – The dual role of Clara/Ellie will require strong ballet technique with at least one year of en pointe experience, dancing (and turning) en pointe, and speaking. No previous acting experience is required.
