Summary of the Steps to audition
(See comprehensive list at bottom for downloadable detailed instructions)
Step Three-Audition Day:
•Allow approximately 2 hours for the audition
•Print out your audition material and be sure to bring a photo of yourself.
Wear shoes and clothes that allow you to move and dance easily.
•Arrive at the Community House 15 minutes before your scheduled audition time and look for the signs for the check in room.
•Sign in, have an audition day photo taken by the production team and be measured for costumes.
•The audition group will then be divided into two separate groups, half will sing first and half will dance first. The groups will then switch.
•Once you have done both, you are done!
•Callbacks will be emailed on Monday January 24th, after 4pm. You will be notified what roles you are called back for and what you should prepare for your callback day.
•If you do not receive a callback, you will receive an email at 4pm. Please don’t let that get you down! Take the opportunity to keep training and come audition again next time!
•Keep in mind that receiving a callback does not guarantee that you will be cast.
