Singers should prepare one age-appropriate song from American folk song, musical theater or school music repertoire.  No rock/pop music, please.  Bring a copy of your sheet music for the pianist.

Youth interested in roles in West Side Story must be available to attend the dance auditions on Sunday, March 11.

Music and staging rehearsal dates and information specific to each production will be available at the auditions, but youth must be fully available for all on-stage rehearsals and performances beginning mid-June through late August.  If selected to participate, each youth receives an honorarium as well as travel reimbursement for mileage to/from rehearsals and performances.

Those interested in auditioning should contact to schedule an audition.  The email should include the full name of youth, voice type, if they are planning to attend the dance auditions, and contact information when signing up.
