This year's TIP Winter Academy will be Hairspray JR! Auditions will be held on Saturday September 21st from 1pm to 5pm at the Johnson County Arts and Heritage Center. We are asking participants to stay for the entire audition process. Sign in will begin at 12:45pm. Auditions will consist of 16 bar auditions, a dance audition, and a chance to read sides from the show. Call backs will be built into the schedule. 

For the 16 bar audition please bring a MP3 Track to accompany you.

The show is then cast within 48 hours of auditions and a link to sign up/ register for camp is then sent out to participants. Though the camp does not start till December- it is a fast and furious, conservatory style experience, so scripts and tracks are sent out way ahead of time in order for the participant to prepare before the first day of rehearsal on December 19th.
