The audition process is very simple.

You will be required to read a portion of the script alone and/or with others and be expected to remain for the entire scheduled audition time. This will allow the possibility of teaming up different actors together throughout the process. This production is a musical so you will be required to also come prepared to sing a song of your choice. Bring the piano music for the accompanist (no A'Capella except for children). You may be asked to learn and perform a few dance steps.
