Video Audition Details:
The auditioners (youth 8 - 18) are to choose two of the characters in the audition folder to audition with. Please make sure that all of your audition materials are in ONE VIDEO. This ensures we see your whole audition. Thank you! Due Monday, April 22, 2024 no later than midnight!

Self-Taping Tip:
Please film horizontally/landscape and make sure that the camera is stationary and set at eye level. Make sure you have a fairly clean background with good lighting illuminating your face. The bottom of the frame should hit at about your hips with the top of the frame hitting right about the top of your head. 

YouTube links and non-secured Google Drive links are the easiest. Many people will be watching your audition video and open links make it the simplest for everyone to access.

Please send your video, headshot, and resume to no later than Monday, April 22, 2024 at midnight to be considered for callbacks. Don't forget to fill out the audition form:
Callbacks are by invitation only and will be on Saturday, April 27, 2024 in the afternoon/evening (subject to change). 

The audition form is available here.
