What will your audition workshop day involve?
There will be a workshop in singing, dancing and acting through song. There is nothing to prepare in advance. The session is run by experienced and friendly professionals who are used to dealing with child casting. The casting team will also be assisted by chaperones who will ensure that all auditionees are looked after. Our main aim is that all auditionees take something away from the experience.
