YOUTH PERFORMANCE WORKSHPOP
DEAR EDWINA, JR.
WHAT DO I NEED TO AUDITION:
Please sign up for an audition time!
Please email us at email@example.com, or call 716-4125 to let us know you are auditioning. We need student name, grade and a contact number.
Students should be prepared to sing 32 bars of music (about 1 minute) from sheet music, or acapella (no music). Vocal auditions are closed and will only be the student and artistic staff. We wil have an accompanist available for those with sheet music. Some students will be asked to 'vocalize' with music director to hear vocal range. No choreography or costumes needed for music auditions.
We will also have 'cold reads' from the script. This part of the process is an 'open' audition which means anyone can sit and watch. Students will get scenes from the show and have a few minutes to work together before reading for the artstic staff. Auditions should conclude by 8:30pm, but we appreciate flexiblity.

Workshop rehearsal days will be on Mondays and Thursdays 5:30-7:30pm (more details about our workshop schedule, including additional rehearsal days below), and runs August 29 through November 2.
