An audition piece will be given to every auditionee.
It is expected that the auditionee will learn the lines of the audition piece
and present it on 6th April. 
A rehearsal schedule is prepared and will be given on first response to any enquiries made by an auditionee.
It is a clever idea to come to auditions in character, dress/shoes/hair, anything that
you feel is appropriate for the role you are seeking.
