Any true singers audition for the first time in a musical? Advice?

I am a singer that has performed in several bands, done solo gigs locally, and occasionaly auditioned for singing contests. I was interested in venturing out and trying my luck at auditioning for musical theatre. I consider myself a singer first and foremost but I have noticed when I searched the audition ads that I could possibly fit several parts in plays/musicals that only require minor acting but with a strong singing voice. I can do a little bit of hip-hop dancing and did some minor acting in college (but no formal training). I can relate somewhat to Jennifer Hudson in "Dreamgirls" in which she considers herself a singer and that is where her heart is at BUT she has done a few musicals at a local community theatre in her past. I've never done this before so my question is for experienced singers (3+ years) ...have any of you on here auditioned for any musicals? Do you have any advice or tips, pros and cons, for singers auditioning for musical theatre? What was your experience?
