Please audition on September 17 if you have not been in a musical at Mason before. Prepare 16 bars of a song from a musical to sing a cappella and a 30 second monologue. Come to E149 at 3:05 on Monday, and wait to be called into the auditorium to present.

Please audition on September 19 if you have been cast in a Mason musical previously. Returning company members only need to prepare 16 bars from a musical. If you are planning to audition on the 19, don’t forget to come to the dance audition on the 18th. Auditions will be in E149 at 3:05.

SEPTEMBER 20 , 2018
