What to Expect

    At Auditions: We’ll introduce the team of leaders and the crew, warm-up our voices together, teach a short song from the show. Everyone will have a chance to sing either that song or a song of their choosing. If your audition song is not from the show, bring sheet music for our Music Director so he can accompany you on the piano. We’ll also teach a short movement sequence, very basic, that everyone can do together. Come prepared to move in comfy clothes and shoes, and to have fun!

    After Auditions: The team of directors will get right to work on Saturday night to cast the show as soon as possible. Our goal will be to release the cast list by Sunday February 12th!

What if if you can’t make any of the 3 audition times?
