WHAT TO PREPARE
Auditions will consist of dancing and cold readings. Audition cuts for those interested in solo opportunities will be provided by the music director in advance via this event. She will be requesting specific cuts from the show for specific roles. Folks only interested in the ensemble will be asked to sing a section from "Gaston." RSVP as “Going” or “Interested” to be notified when those audition cuts are posted.
Rehearsals are from 7pm to 9:30pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays beginning May 7th. You should plan to be available every day of tech week. A printed schedule will be available.
Performances will be July 14-16 and 20-22.
