The six plays are “The Three Musketeers,” “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” “The Wizard of Oz,” “Next to Normal,” “A Raisin in the Sun” and “The Magic Play.”
Auditioners should note that these productions include a significant number of morning student matinees in addition to evening performances. To schedule an audition appointment, call Chris Botek at 315.443.4008.

Singers should bring sheet music; an accompanist will be provided. Auditions for children will be held at a later date.
