CAN ALL AASD MEMBERS PARTICIPATE IN THE ALL-CITY AUDITIONS?
No. Only those members who meet this program’s submission qualifications are eligible to participate.
I DID THE ALL-CITY AUDITIONS LAST YEAR? DO I NEED TO DO THEM AGAIN?
It is a good idea to audition every year if possible as it provides the opportunity for the auditors to see your growth and gives you the chance to show them your range by performing new and different material.
I HAVE SOME OLD THEATRE BOOKS. DOES AASD WANT THEM?
We no longer have a resource library. In 2009 we donated it to V.A.P.A - the visual and performing arts organization. They are more than happy to take further donations.
