These auditions are for any student ages 8 to 18, who is interested in combining the arts of singing, Acting, and dance. For the audition, the student must prepare one short monologue or one short song. It is their choice. If they choose to sing a song, they should bring the accompaniment on their phone or their parents phone. The length of the audition should be less than two minutes. It will be followed by a brief interview. Anyone with any questions may call Tracy at 916-224-7947, or email me at
