Merry Christmas!! Yes already! Can you believe it's time for auditions for Christmas already?? This year we are going to be doing a childrens musical called:

It has incredible music, a fantastic story and fun characters that all lead and share that even someone small can bring their gifts to Jesus. Audition info below:

The Little Drummer Dude

Auditions: Sunday, September 8th: 1:00p.m.-2:30p.m.
Any kid in grades Kindergarten-8th grade may audition

Prepare: We must hear you sing a solo (with accompaniment) no more than 1 minute in length.
You will then read a scene with fellow auditionees from the script and then those wishing for a dance solo or to be part of the dance team must do a dance audition. (also anyone who would like a lead role, as most of the lead roles require small amounts of dance)
