Please email Carrie at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are planning to attend the audition and advise the role/roles you would like to be seen for – Do not call the office – email only.
I have created a Dropbox folder that contains the original cast recording, just to help you become more familiar – you will not be singing from the show at the open audition, only at callbacks. We will add the sides and cuts to this folder as well. If you have any issues with the Dropbox link, please let Carrie know and she can make other arrangements for you.
