Important information:

  • We are only auditioning for Leads this time around.  Please respect this process by not auditioning if you are too young, not available for show times, or are just looking for experience.

  • Although we have places for all ages in the chorus, be aware that the director has requested that auditioners for lead roles should be at least in grade 12 or adult.  The only exception will be one role for a child who should be aged 10 - 12 but can pass for a younger age.  We appreciate your support in this decision!

  • All auditioners are required to provide a headshot and CV

  • Video auditions will be accepted.  Please send by June 20 for review to cowichanmusicalsociety@gmail.com

  • PLEASE NOTE THAT CHORUS WILL NOT BE AUDITIONING AT THIS TIME. However, there are a lot of named chorus members, so if you come out and audition for one of the main roles, you will be given priority for one of them.
