The Stage Manager will reply by email with your audition time for the day requested. On the day of your audition please arrive at least 5 minutes early and wait in your care in the parking lot until the Stage Manager texts you that it is time for you to enter the theatre. Please enter through the back door marked COSTUME SHOP. You must enter wearing your mask and continue to wear it throughout your audition, except when singing. Your temperature will be taken at the door; 100.4+ will not be allowed in the building (we will take your temperature a second time if this is the case, just to be sure it wasn't a technical glitch.) You will also be asked to use the hand sanitizer provided by DHT.
