We ask that you prepare 16 bars of a song from a Sondheim musical or from an operetta. There will be a sign-up sheet on my office door, Room 111 in the lobby, for audition times beginning tomorrow, October 27, 2009. We may test your range during your audition. Ranges for various roles will also be posted.

If we need them, callbacks will be Thursday, Nov. 5, at a site to be announced. Come and be a part of this season’s history – the first musical theatre production in the Ataloa Theater.
