Audition nights are a perfect time to come out, meet the director, and express your interest in helping out backstage, be it in the role of crew member, costumes, concessions, or whatever else you might like to do. If you can’t stop by at auditions, you can also email the director at  to show your interest in being a crew member.

They’re also GREAT for first-timers to come out and observe how things are done, maybe express interest in being a helper or read for a part! You never know what can happen!  Being part of the chorus in a musical is a great way to “tryout” theatre to see if you like it.  There are few things as satisfying as the applause of the crowd.
