"Beauty and the Beast" auditions will be held the 11th & 12th of April at the Maciolek School of Dance at 7pm.

Singing and cold reading auditions will be held on the 11th with some possible singing and readings also on the 12th.

You need to prepare a short song (16-32 measures of music will suffice). Bring sheet music in the appropriate key or a CD track of your song.

The 12th will mostly be a dancing and movement audition (dress to move).

There is the specific need of a child actor/singer for the role of Chip, Mrs. Potts' son.
