A couple adult roles will not need to dance.


We will accept video auditions for those that are out of town or have approval from the Artistic Director (David Judson).  Please be sure to include a dance reel if you are submitting a video.  We prefer to see you live but will make exceptions for out of town actors or others with extreme conflicts.
