Auditions

Auditions for band, dance, and cast will take place in late September. Details below.

 Note to those wanting to prepare in advance:

  • We will be asking cast auditionees to sing one of Dead MomFright Of Their Lives, or Ready, Set, Not Yet. You will also be asked to sing any song of your choice (can be any genre, any show, any language). You will also be asked to do a 3-page scene reading. All other information will be in the audition package.
  • Those auditioning for the band should prepare a piece that accurately reflects their playing ability (not too hard and not too easy, that sweet spot in between).
  • Dance directors will be able to provide a basic overview of some of the moves required at the dance audition. The audition routine will not be made available prior to the audition.
