Auditions will be the first 4 days when we come back from our Winter Break, January 8 and 9 for preliminary auditions and January 10 and 11 for callbacks. This is one amazing show!

Go to xcp.org; click “Students” on the upper right side of the home page; find “Downloads” on the right side of the next page; you will find the “Into the Woods” packet ready for you to download.
