Next Audition Days and Times 

January 22nd, 3-5pm

Auditions will be held in a two-hour block where each auditioner will get to sing, dance, and read from sides in consideration for that show's full production workshop.

Video Audition

If you are interested in auditioning but are not available for this date and time, after you register, there are instructions on how to do your Video Submission in the Audition Info email. In person is best, but if there's just no way you can, that's another option. However, you can't audition for more than one show in a row via video. We feel the live audition is a great experience and we want everyone to experience it whenever possible. First preference is given to live auditioners.

Please check your availability against the schedule below before submitting!

If cast, we will only excuse you from rehearsals with conflicts that you list ON THE FORM today. Please remember that the fewer conflicts you have, the better chance you have at being cast.

After the audition:
Generally within a week, you will receive an email letting you know if you are accepted into the workshop production.

1) If you are invited into the workshop CONGRATULATIONS!  At that time, on receipt of the casting email, the remainder of tuition is due for actors 18 and under.

2) If you are not cast and invited into the workshop you will be refunded the deposit and we encourage you to audition again in the future.

3) If you are offered a role that you stated on your audition form that you would accept, but then choose not to participate, your audition deposit is non-refundable as we will use that for the time and resources we will need to use to recast the role.


To register, fill out the "18 and under" registration form below or CLICK HERE and click "Submit" to pay the audition deposit.  

Once that is done, you will receive a confirmation email with sides info and all of the information you need to have a wonderful audition.
