Document adjustments: thanks to those who have pointed out a couple of typos I have made between the Timeline and Pre-audition Info docs which have been corrected below.
i) I can confirm the compulsory Dance section of Sunday Oct 20 is 1 - 3pm
ii) The days for 10am - 4pm blocking rehearsals in January for named roles etc are Thurs Jan 23 and Fri Jan 24.

Below are the various documents and information you will need to familiarise yourself with prior to auditions. You are not expected to know words off by heart but those who have a good working knowledge of the material certainly have an advantage. Conversely, those who obviously have no idea of lines they are reading, are telling us that selection is not really a great priority to them. 
Ensemble (ALL CAST) material
This is the material that will be used first up in the two general workshops and for the cast audition. All auditionees will be required to print and bring their own copies. If you are unable to do this, please contact
Mr Burton.

This Pre-audition Information doc below sets out EXACTLY what is required of you, if you choose to audition, and how our process works. Mr Burton will cover it thoroughly at the Pre-audition Information Evening, Term 3 Week 10, TUESDAY 730pm in The Speirs Centre. This meeting is COMPULSORY for all potential band and cast auditionees. If you have a prior commitment, you must make an apology to Mr Burton BEFORE this event. If you do not, you will not be guaranteed the right to audition.

Playing the spoons!! We would like to make a feature of people who can do this really well and could cast on this skill alone.

Here is one basic tutorial of many on youtube:
