Auditions will be held at St James Lutheran Church, 1380 Waukegan Road, Lake Forest, IL 60045   


Walk-ins are welcome but may have to wait.

If you can not make one of these audition dates, please contact our producer, Ryan Elliott at to make arrangements to submit a YouTube Audition.   

Please be prepared to sing up to 32 bars of your audition song of choice and bring your sheet music with start and end points.  Please note: You may not need to sing all 32 bars.  If you are stopped before that point, it just means we have heard what we need to hear.  Please don’t read anything else into it (good or bad) if that should happen.  Please come with appropriate footwear for a dance audition.  

Please visit our website for an audition information sheet and audition forms (minor/adult).  Please bring completed forms along with a recent photo and resume to auditions.
