RETURNING ENSEMBLE (CHORUS) MEMBERS: Even though eligible returning chorus participants are not required to audition again, we DO need a count of how many have signed up before the auditions take place so the artistic staff can plan for how many new singers we need.  So if you intend to participate this year, you must send a copy of the Kick-Off Flyer to our Assistant Production Manager, Adam Young, at by March 24th to guarantee a spot.

MISS OUR KICK-OFF MEETING?:  We had wonderful attendance at our kick-off meeting on March 8th, but just because you might have missed that doesn't mean you have to miss participating in this year's show! Whether you are interested in being on stage as a performer or serving on one of our many committees, please download the Kick-Off Flyer HERE and send send it to the address listed!
