Participants in this workshop will learn what directors will be looking for at auditions, as they rotate between singing, acting and dancing in 3 groups of 30.  A portion of one of the songs from How I Became a Pirate will be taught.  Once you’ve learned the song and how to sing it with a strong character voice, we’ll add in the choreography that goes with it.  Put all three elements together and you’ve got the recipe for a successful audition.
