The Riverside County Fair and National Date Festival is holding auditions to give the talent in the Coachella Valley a chance to be a part of the 2015 Nightly Musical.
DON'T MISS OUT!

SHOW DATES ARE EVENINGS
FROM FEBRUARY 13 thru 22, 2015 
OTHER NOTES
We are always excited to try to incorporate unusual talents into our shows where possibles.  We encourage not only singers, actors/actresses, and dancers, but specialty performers (e.g., magicians, stilt walkers, jugglers, clowns, belly dancers, circus acts, yo-yo artists, etc.), too.
  
Actors should expect to "cold read" 
(though if you arrive early you will have time to study and practice a side)
Singers should bring an instrumental track on CD 
(a piano accompanist will be on hand if you only have sheet music).
Specialty performers should prepare a typical routine. 
Anyone who just wants to be part of the chorus/ensemble is welcome based on space.

Everyone should bring a brief, informal acting resume 
(digital photos will be taken at the audition)
