Auditions are open, no appointment needed. Please bring a vocal selection from a musical or movie of your choice. If using sheet music, please make sure it is in the correct key. Singing to a background track is acceptable; however, a capella is not. Bring or wear clothing suitable for dancing and be prepared to participate in a dance combination as most roles will require dancing. The auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Please bring a resume and head shot to auditions. Newcomers are welcome and encouraged.

The artistic team is planning movie magic and looking for the talent to make this happen. We will cast a group of 20 to 24 performers to join us for a wonderful summer of acting, singing and dancing accompanied by a talented live orchestra.
All roles are open and volunteer based.
