5. How many are accepted?
Workshop registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. You do not need
to audition to get into the workshop as casting happens on the first two
days. We will accept between 35 and 50 students. Once the session is full
we will put your child on a waiting list. If anyone cancels, we will call the
next person on the waiting list and offer them the spot.

6. How are parts cast?
Students will be placed in parts according to their talent and what they are
able to handle. Please note that we reserve the right to DOUBLE CAST parts
as needed.
Auditions will take place on Friday, July 26, 2013 from 10-3 at the
Richter House. Everyone will learn a song, read and dance.
Roles will be given out on Monday, July 29 (the first day of camp)
The students DO NOT need to prepare anything in advance to audition
for the summer workshop.
The Director and Musical Director teach the students one song from the
show and they will sing it together and then individually to listen for vocal
quality and projection.
**If performers are unable to make auditions on 7/26, alternate
accommodations may be able to be made. This will be based on each
individual circumstance.

We accept cash and checks. If paying by check please make it payable to:

misconduct and will not refund any tuition or ticket purchases.
