MIKADO AUDITIONS!

This week we are holding auditions for The Mikado! We will be at STAC Monday-Wednesday from 7-10 p.m. If you’d like to reserve a time, email us at umgass@umich.edu, otherwise, walk-ins are welcome! The directors have requested you prepare an English language song, preferably one from the show if you are auditioning for a specific part. They want to see your acting ability, so choose a characterization and express it as you sing. There will not be dance auditions for this show. Bring your conflict calendar and a copy of your music for the accompanist.  We hope to see you soon!

A Fine Proposal!
