We are delighted that you are interested in auditioning for Cabaret. Because Cabaret is a dance-heavy show, we would like you to have the opportunity to show your character and dancing skills to your best advantage. We will be posting a piece of choreography for you to learn BEFORE your audition. We will NOT be teaching the choreography at the time of your audition. The dance audition will be posted in approximately two weeks. All Kit Kat girls and Sally Bowles candidates should learn this . There will be a separate simpler piece for the Emcee and Kit Kat boys. There will be an additional dance audition at callbacks.
Everyone must be 18 years and older and must be vaccinated for Covid-19 to enter the Shannondell campus. You will be required to sign a statement saying this. Please do not enter the campus if you are not vaccinated.
Additional NOTE: We would love to cast you all but because of COVID precautions we are limited in the size of our cast by Shannondell restrictions. We look forward to seeing you. Thanks for auditioning!
