1) Clothing and footwear (heels and jazz shoes or sneakers) suitable for dance
2) If you are a singer, please bring 2 copies of sheet music for a two songs (one copy for yourself, one for the piano accompanist) suitable for your voice. Ideally one should be from pre-1960 and one more modern, in the musical theatre tradition. Please rehearse these songs in your own time and be ready to workshop them with Rachel. She will be able to give you some tips on how to improve your presentation of the song for your next audition.
3) Water to refresh yourself through the workshop
4) A CV or list of what you've done in musical theatre so far, include a photo of yourself on it for identification purposes. (Often you are required to do this in a professional audition so preparing one is good practice.)
