ABOUT AUDITIONS 

Ages 16 and up are welcome to audition.  Younger actors may request an audition by e-mailing us a headshot and resume.
*Because we likely  will have minors in our cast, all cast members 18 and older will be required to get a background check prior to the Cast Meeting on February 2.

Please prepare 32-bars of a contemporary musical theatre song with digital accompaniment.  There will also be reading of prepared sides from Jake & Rachel. Actors who pre-register (registration opens January 2) will recieve the sides via e-mail. There will also be a short movement call, so please dress comfortably.
There will be an opportunity to change if you'd like before songs and sides.

If you play a portable instrument (guitar, violin, etc.), please prepare a 30-second solo in addition.

Resumes with previous experience and education, along with conflict calendar, will be required at auditions.

The Callback list will be e-mailed by 8pm on Sunday, January 27.
