You have two steps to take in order to get enrolled in this class, enroll in the class by clicking the Enroll Button at the bottom of this page and then sign-up for an audition time. Students will need to prepare one FULL musical theatre or pop song in the style of the show with an accompaniment CD or iPhone track. From there, students will be given further callback material to look over if needed. It is important that you become familiar with the musical ahead of time but please know that the high school edition is not exactly like the recording most of you have listened to.
