Please check back for changes as we may make adjustments before auditions. 

PLEASE NOTE: If your child does not do well in high-stress situations, or does not deal well with fatigue, please take this into consideration when deciding to participate.  The audition process is very telling for us.  If we see a restless kid with very little self-control during the audition, it's a good sign that this is not a good format for that type of kid.  As for teens, the same applies.  If you are a teenager wanting to be a part of this show, but you don't do well with lack of sleep or stress, this is not for you! We expect our older students to be good role models for the younger ones.
