 You will need to prepare a song from the show to sing using the auditions songs found here http://broadwayjr.com/audition/auditionlist.asp?ID=000378 . You may prepare more than one if you desire, but depending on the number of auditioners, you may not get to sing but one.  Plan to sing the part of the song that showcases your voice the best. Please read the synopsis and role breakdowns at the Broadway Jr website.  Do not call the school for more information as they are just providing a location.  If you have other questions not answered at the Broadway Jr website or www.augustaplayers.org, you may call 706.826.4707.  Auditioners do not have to be at both auditions.

This show will be performed in Augusta on November 13 & 14 and will be entered in the Junior Theatre Festival to be performed in Atlanta in January 2016.  Information about this festival can be found at

Please bring your calendars to the audition as we will need to have all conflicts between the audition and November and the month of January prior to casting.
