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 (via Zoom) 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 (Zoom) auditioners.
Please check your availability against the schedule below before requesting a time slot!
If cast, we will only excuse you from rehearsals with conflicts that you list BELOW today. Please remember that the fewer conflicts you have, the better chance you have at being cast.

After the audition:
Generally within a week after the final audition day 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.
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.
