Pirates! Audition information

WELCOME! To auditions for LCT’s Summer Season.


Where: Trinity Episcopal Church, 301 Pekin Street, Lincoln.

When: Saturday, April 8th for children (ages 6-16) only – from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Children auditioning for PIRATES THE MUSICAL should come prepared to sing a song of their choice. This can be something as simple as “Happy Birthday” or music they have prepared. We will have an accompanist available. Our choreographers will also teach auditioning groups a short “dance” selection—really just movement to music. Children will not be asked to do any script reading as part of the process. Auditions will begin at 10a.m. on Saturday, April 8, at Trinity Episcopal Church.
