Step 1:

Auditions will take place on Friday, May 13. Students wishing to audition should sign up for a 90 minute time slot using the button below. Students should plan to stay for the full 90min. If needed, callbacks will take place on Sunday, May 15. All casting will be notified by phone by Friday, May 20!

Step 2:

The group audition will consist of a vocal audition as well as a dance audition. For the vocal audition, students are asked to prepare the audition cut for ONE of the audition song options. We are also asking you prepare one of the spoken lines. All song and line options are available at the link below! No preparation is needed for the dance audition, but please wear clothes that you can move in!

Step 3:

Once you've scheduled your audition time, prepared your audition selections, the last thing you need to do is attend the audition - the FUN part! There are a few things you need to bring with you to the audition: (1) Your completed Audition Form, (2) A recent photo or headshot, and (3) Your Resume (resumes are not required).
