Bye Bye Birdie Audition and Callback Information

Auditions will be held Tuesday, November 14th, from 7 to 9 pm at Gahanna Middle School West (350 North Stygler Road). Each auditionee will be asked to sing 16-32 bars (approximately 30 to 60 seconds) of a prepared song. Please bring piano music for the accompanist. Callbacks will be on Thursday, November 16th, at the same location. If you are only interested in being in the adult or teen chorus, you still need to bring prepared music, but you do not need to attend callbacks.

PLEASE BRING YOUR CALENDAR! You will be asked to list all rehearsal conflicts ahead of time at auditions. It is vital in casting that we know of any work conflicts or vacations in advance, so that we can work around them. Resume and headshots are optional.

Performances will be February 16, 17 and 18 at Gahanna Lincoln High School.
