What should I bring to an audition?

Please bring your calendars with your commitments and schedules, including spring break and family vacations.

Auditions are cold readings from the script. You can bring a monologue to read if you wish. 

Shows are May 8th – 9th. Casts members are expected to be available for mandatory heck starting Friday, May 1st, the week before the show. The Saturday show date has back to back shows and an audience talkback/panel discussion. The cast is expected to be available including prep time, in between the matinee and evening performances, and for set strike following the show. Families are expected to share volunteer duties for best show and needs of the cast as a whole. “Many hands make light work” in LATTE, and the teen cast thrives with this philosophy.
