Important: Please Note:

Due to the high cost of travel, housing and car rentals, we hire
primarily from the local Seattle-Tacoma area. We only hire out
of area when we are unable to find someone for a role locally.
In addition, we only have a limited number of audition slots
available. Consequently, priority for audition slots will be given
to singers from the Seattle-Tacoma area. Singers from outside
the area are welcome to send in their materials electronically.
If the need arises, the individual will be contacted for further
requested materials or an in person audition.
