Please be prepared with 32 bars of a musical theater ballad. Students MUST provide sheet music; accompaniment will be provided. We will not accept a cappella or karaoke versions of music. Please also wear comfortable clothing and footwear in order to complete the dance portion of the audition. This year we will be performing selections from Disney's "Hunchback of Notre Dame." Rehearsals will typically take place Monday through Thursday after school, and we will compete at the regional jazz festival in April. Please email jireland@ellsworthschools.org with any questions. See you there!


If you need help in getting the 32 bars of sheet music for the audition, please speak with Mr. Newett. He will help get you in contact with a person who has that music.
