While it is a busy time of year, please note that by auditioning, you are obligating yourself to a considerable rehearsal and performance process. Please be certain that you are willing and able to make this commitment.

After the auditions, all those who audition are contacted via email. An announcement is made at auditions, to let those who audition know when they should expect to hear from the production team.

Callbacks will be scheduled, if/as necessary. Not being called back does not mean that you are not be in the show. Likewise, being called back does not guarantee participation.
