Sign up for an audition time HERE

Actors should prepare a 1 minute vocal piece in the style of the character(s) they are interested in and they need to bring a device to play their instrumental track to auditions. We will provide a sound system they can plug into. Video submissions are also accepted through the end of May. Cast will be announced at the end of May and music given to begin studying during June. 

We will consider all actors for all roles regardless of what they audition with, but we like to see them make strong choices and show us their talent! All actors should be very familiar with the songs from the show and study the character traits from the Broadway version on Youtube with Bernadette Peters. Actors who are ages 11-15 will be considered for both the younger and the older cast. Let us know if you prefer one or the other at auditions.

We strongly encourage cast members to enroll in private voice lessons during June in order to prepare for July’s rehearsals. Sondheim is not easy and the more they come in prepared, the more amazing things we can do together!

We are thrilled to announce that we’ll be using LIVE music for this show!
