Everyone who wishes to take part should attend this audition
You will take part in a dance workshop that will be shown to you at the audition and then a singing workshop of a song from the production. You will then need to sing a solo song if you wish to be considered for a solo singing role in the production. If not, you do not need to do this section of the audition and are free to leave.
This song can be anything you like but please try to keep it below 3/4 minutes, it must not be explicit.
You can bring the song on a mobile device (make sure you have an adapter for a headphone jack), a memory stick or on a CD. Please do not have the track on YouTube, Spotify is fine.
You can also email a mp3 or wav file in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org, marked with your name and which show you are auditioning for. Do not email us a link, we won’t click it.
