What to expect:  We understand auditions can be stressful, but we strive to run our auditions more like rehearsals or workouts. We will warm up together and you will get multiple opportunities to get up and show us your best. Please be prepared to stay the entire time and get there a few minutes early so we can start on time.

What to wear/bring:  Dress comfortably in clothes you can move in. Feel free to bring a water bottle so that you stay hydrated!
