About the Audition Process

The entire audition process takes about 60-90 minutes and includes performing some simple dance steps and singing with others. Please note: The Washington Revels community reflects our larger community; we therefore seek to create a diverse cast consisting of strong performers of all backgrounds and ancestries. The ability to read music is helpful, but not required.
