Auditions will be held in small groups. by appointment only. This minimizes the time you have to spend (you’ll be done in an hour), and gives us a better chance to see what you can do. Please contact the director(DLeavitt1969@alumni.cmu.edu) to schedule an audition, or if you have any questions. (If you want to audition but can’t make the dates shown, let us know; we may be able to work something out.)
Auditions will consist of two parts: cold reads from the script, and a musical number (or numbers) as shown below. All references are to the Schirmer score.
