Please bring a photo and resume with you to auditions. Please note ALL potential conflicts for rehearsals on the evening of the audition. Please be sure to include any conflicts during the rehearsal period, even dates not currently listed as rehearsal days.

Please audition with a 16-32 bar cut from musical theatre – or a 70s pop song – that will best display your vocal range. (PLEASE DO NOT SELECT A SONG FROM THE SHOW.)
