There will also be a dance workshop conducted on Saturday, April 29th to teach the opening dance sequence to the production, which will also be used for auditions.
The dance workshop will be held at the following location:
Turning Pointe Academy of Dance

Please come to the in-person auditions prepared to sing 16 bars of a musical style that best shows your Broadway vocals.

The choreographed dance audition, taught at the April 29th dance workshop, will follow after everyone has completed the vocal auditions. If you are auditioning for a lead role, there will be script readings to follow vocals and choreography.
