When Will Auditions Be Held? Auditions take place on the very first day of CAMP!. Students will be taught a short musical excerpt, a dance combination, and read a scene in front of the staff. Students are welcome to bring a 32-bar excerpt of their own as well, though it is not required. Vocal audition excerpts will be posted here before CAMP! begins.

Can you help me find a carpool? Due to security concerns we're no longer able to offer our carpool finder. We will however, have a parent meet-and-greet at the beginning of CAMP! to meet other parents.

This page will contain helpful rehearsal tools including sheet music, dance numbers and playlists of our music. Check back for more items as CAMP! gets nearer.
