Dance Call: The original Cabaret choreography was helmed by the great Bob Fosse. We will try to accomplish as much of the original choreography as possible. That being said: please be prepared to dance at auditions as all characters in this version of Cabaret require these skills. Please wear form fitting dance clothing to the audition. No loose fitting or baggy clothing will be permitted. Women please wear character heels and men please wear jazz shoes.

Please bring your headshot and resume (if you have it).  Audition forms will be emailed out the week prior and/or can be filled out at the Footlight Club.  If you need to fill out a form, please arrive 10 minutes before your time slot.
