Audition requirements: Director Maria Bakalis is seeking to cast a group of 24 imaginative, flexible, playful adults and children. Auditions will consist of learning and singing a 16-bar music selection, not from the show, along with cold readings of short scenes, also not from the show. Children will be taught some simple movement steps. All roles are available. Please bring a recent photograph; a selfie or snapshot is fine.
Please contact director Maria Bakalis with questions at [email protected].
