Anyone interested in an onstage role should plan to attend these audition dates:

No dance experience required – but a positive attitude and willingness to learn will be helpful! Audition forms/packets will be distributed at this session for you to bring back (completed) at the open call audition sessions.
Tuesday, Dec 5 OR Wed, Dec 6 – Open Call Auditions. You will choose a time slot by signing up on the backstage door (bottom of big staircase, across from bandroom) and be a part of a group of 6-8 students. Lots of information is posted on Moodle, on the Penn Manor Theatre site. (Under HS – Student Life – Penn Manor Theatre) – students can access this information.
You will need to be prepared to do the following:
