First, know that the people watching you want to cast you! We have all been on the other side of the table and we applaud your bravery.

I can't wait to see our past performers and meet our future ones at the auditions. All the information you need is here on our website but I wanted to give you a few tips.


BE THERE

The most important thing is to show up. We can't cast you unless we meet you and see what you can do.


BE HAPPY

Show us how much you love to perform shows. A smile goes a long way to cover forgotten words and missed notes. Pick a song you like to sing. It will show in your audition.


BE PREPARED

Practice, practice, practice! Sing to yourself, your friends and your family. Memorize the words. Be sure to practice with the music you bring.


BE READY TO HAVE FUN

When learning the dance if you don't have dance experience, just pretend you are playing WII or Kinect with your friends. We are looking for enthusiastic learners as well as experienced dancers.


BE SUPPORTIVE OF YOUR FELLOW ACTORS

We work as a group in theater and every role is important. I like to see actors that work well together.


BE PROUD

You did it! Be proud of yourself!
