The audition time slots are for the first part of the audition process. Between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on May 13th, you will audition by yourself. Please prepare a (roughly) 30 second portion of a song. Use the karaoke version of a song you like and be sure to DOWNLOAD the karaoke track to your phone or tablet so that you aren’t waiting for a YouTube or other streaming track to load during your audition. Have the music cued up and ready when you come in the room.

You will sing your prepared song. Then we may have you read a scene and do vocal scales with our music director to see your vocal range.

We are very friendly, and supportive of auditionees!

From to 2pm-4pm everyone will return to learn a song and dance number from the show.
