We are also seeking ballroom dancers, English country dancers, Can-Can girls and belly dancers!

No new auditions will be taken after 9:30pm. Actors and actresses wishing to try for a major role will be required to present two Victorian audition pieces, one dramatic and one comedic piece, of no longer than 3 minutes total. And be prepared to work with improvisation! All others acts will be expected to present a brief sample of the act. We hope to see you there!
