AUDITIONS will be open workshop style, whereby we will all remain in the room and work together. Please think about the character you wish to audition for and then use the poems under the "Resources 2" section to prepare. Foe example, Buttons needs to be a good story teller, Cinderella is earnest, the step sisters are silly and provide the comedy, the stepmother is cruel and vicious. We know you will be nervous, but try not to worry :)

AUDITION SONGS - we will provide a selection of songs for you to look at prior to the audition (check back soon) and you can pick one to sing. You may bring your own, but it isn't necessary.

CHOREOGRAPHY - there will be very simple choreography which will be taught on the day.

DANCERS - if you would like to audition for a dancer then please contact Carrie Bianco's dance school via email - - anyone is welcome to audition, with the minimum age being 6. No date set as yet.
