Journey Into the Woods with Town Theatre

Town Theatre will hold auditions for Stephen Sondheim’s masterpiece Into the Woods on Saturday, July 6 and Sunday, July 7 at 7:30 pm.

Auditionees should be prepared to sing 32 bars (not necessarily from Into the Woods) which best showcases your vocal range and ability. An accompanist will be provided for those with sheet music (preferred), but you may also bring mp3 accompaniment with a connector. Please dress comfortably for the movement portion of the audition.

Please bring a current photo of yourself – it does not have to be a professional headshot – just something that we can use to identify you. You likely will NOT get this back.
