Frequently Asked Questions:

 

Q: Do I need to attend more than one individual audition day?

A: Nope, just one! If we need to see you with other people at callbacks, our stage manager will let you know! On the other hand, everyone needs to be there on Tuesday Dec 13th for dance callbacks!

Q: I've never done this before! What do I bring?

A: No stress! A large amount of our cast each year is first-timers! Just find a song from a Broadway show that you like and that shows off your voice. You can search on YouTube for a karaoke track or instrumental of the song. Feel free to bring a speaker to connect to your phone, or use our bluetooth speaker. Make sure you practice with the track a lot!

Q: I don't have a printer. Will audition forms be available at auditions?

A: Yes! We will have extras there. We will audition in order of received completed audition form, so it's smart to fill it out ahead of time if you're able to.

Q: If I don't get called back, does that mean I didn't get a part?

A: No! Not everyone is needed for callbacks, only those the directors need to see again. Most of the cast will probably not hear their role until the week after auditions end, so be patient!

Q: What if I can't make the dance audition or callbacks? (Dec 13th)

A: Please mention it to the directors during your audition. They may ask you to do something extra at your audition, or they may already have a great part in mind for you! If you aren't able to make Dec 13th at all, it may affect your casting.

Q: What days are rehearsals?

A: We rehearse Monday through Friday evenings, but frequency is depending on the role you are given. You won't be called every day. Some Saturdays may be required closer to production. It is expected that by auditioning for this production, you will do your best to attend all rehearsals you are called to. Absolutely NO absences will be permitted March 20th-30th or any of the show dates!! (barring serious illness)
