These auditions are for girls up to the age of 15. Please wear comfortable clothing and closed-toe shoes, as you will be asked to move and do some basic dance steps. Please bring a copy of the sheet music with which you plan to audition, preferably a musical selection from the play, Annie. Your piece should be memorized.
