Pick a slot in the SignupGenius (same link above) for the musical auditions. If planning to audition for plays and the musical, please secure a timeslot for each. Imagine three high school kids, on a rainy day, waiting at the school bus stop for their ride to school. BECCA, the oldest girl, never rides the bus and is a lst Sop; HOLLY is a bit younger, rides the bus every day and is very science minded and a Second Sop; and ZITH, the youngest, and is  totally into D&D. She takes it very seriously and she is our Alto.

Please bring a resume and something to sing that shows your vocal range. There will also be cold readings from the script.
