REHEARSAL HOURS

Sept - April

Tuesday & Thursday: 6:00-8:00 pm
Saturday:  10:00 am - 2:00 pm​

auDITIONs

 

Auditioning is a life skill/experience - set a goal, prepare ahead of time, and then do your best on Auditions day

No matter what show we are doing, Directors ALWAYS look for:

  • Team Players - listen and be supportive of others

  • Poise and Personality - confidence but relaxed

  • Good Diction and Projection - speaking/singing clearly and loudly enough

  • Expression - willingness to share your feelings and emotions while speaking/dancing

  • Vulnerability - willingness to explore your sensitive side

  • Flexibility - open to trying new techniques

  • Dedication - commitment/availability for the show

Come to Audition only if you wish to be part of this Cast Family ~ not because you want only a specific role(s) 

 

Recognize that Casting is not scientific and very difficult; respect the Staff's decisions and have fun with your role(s)!

 

Remember that your job is to properly prepare and then give the best Audition possible on that particular day
