Students may also learn harmonies and should be prepared to dance at the audition. Please come prepared with proper attire (sneakers or dance shoes), any possible rehearsal conflicts for the year, and any possible competition/performance conflicts during January to June 2023. Conflicts given after the audition date will not be accepted. A specific rehearsal schedule will be provided at the audition. Students will be needed for the entire audition timeframe, so please arrive promptly and plan to stay for the entirety of the audition. There will be a brief parent meeting at the start of the audition to explain program expectations and requirements. At least one parent or guardian is expected to attend.
Rehearsals will generally take place on Tuesdays from 6:00PM-9:00PM starting on Tuesday September 20th, 2022. A rehearsal schedule will be provided at the audition, containing specifics and additional possible rehearsals. Students will rehearse for a 30-minute showcase with contrasting musical theatre and pop selections, and will be expected to sing, dance, and act. Solos will be available by audition, but are not guaranteed.

Competition information will be dependent on the size and makeup of the group.
