Auditions

Please read the following information below about auditioning. Also, be sure to:
  • Check the season calendar of rehearsal and performance dates and cross-reference your own calendars for potential conflicts.
  • Print and sign the Required Signature page (150kb PDF). This important document contains the photo release, company member conduct pledge, and medical release information. This must be read and signed by company members and a parent/guardian and turned in at the audition! (We will have hard-copies on hand at auditions.)

  • How do I sign up to audition?
    You may sign up to audition online here.

    If there are no audition times available, that means all slots are full. Please contact us and we will try to arrange a time to see you.

    NOTE: The link will take you to the "Auditionee Info" form. This is different from the Required Signature page. The Auditionee Info form is several pages long, and it's where you will enter all of your contact info, experience, special skills, etc. You may not sign up for an audition appointment until you have completed the Auditionee Info form!
