If you are unable to attend our auditions, we will accept a video.  Video submissions will be accepted ONLY during the audition period.  And, although we will accept video submissions, casting preference is given to those that live locally and are able to attend our auditions.

Also, we do not offer housing/transportation for out of town actors.

If you are submitting for one of the Featured Ensemble roles, you must do a video with the sides.    Sides can be found further down, below the “What to Prepare” section on this page during the audition period.

If you are submitting for ensemble, please submit a video of you singing something in the style of the show (NO A CAPELLA).  You must also include a video with some sort of representation of your dance ability, including tap.
