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.

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.
