Guest Artists (GA)

Hardworking high school juniors/seniors (by fall of 2019) and young degree seeking college students and Houston area professionals are encouraged to audition this year for the Guest Artist positions. Highly competitive for the lead roles, and will be selected as students that can serve as EXAMPLES to younger students. Lack of preparation by end of week 1 of staging rehearsals will result in IMMEDIATE termination and replacement. These positions are low payment ($100-$500), but are paid positions. No Tuition required.

Emerging Artists (EA)

Ideally are high-schoolers through seniors in college looking to pursue a musical performance degree of some kind. Will cast up to age 23 for voices needing time for development (ex: large voices not ready to transition). Will perform compramario and lead roles. Tuition required.


We will be doing a cover run this year, it will be included in contracts and will be a private invite-only event. Family members will be invited along with anyone who is approved including Patreon subscribers. May only be run with piano and conductor. See below for cover assignments based on casting.
