We would like to see two videos for submissions! One of you moving- in whatever way that means to you.
And one of you telling a story of a time you were told you couldn't do something as a child, and how you bounced back from that.
There also is an optional "your choice" third video that you can choose to submit of a monologue, tap dancing, hip-hop, singing, circus arts, etc. Up to you!
After these videos, we may invite you to a callback workshop (lasting one hour) in person at Music Theatre Philly. The callback dates are Sunday, June 11th (8-9 PM) or Monday, June 12th (8-9 PM).
