Helpful Advice for Auditioning - 


  1. Augh!!! I want to audition but my schedule is, er, erratic. I don't even know if I'll be working yet during the auditions! Noooooooo!

  2. That's okay, Meghan! Just send us a video! =)

  3. Hey,I was wondering if you can audition without sending a video like setting a date because I don't have a camera.:(

  4. We'd love to, Jay - but the problem is, there are six different directors, so it's hard for us to all be in the same place at the same time! We set up a two-hour block on Sunday the 17th, but all the slots filled up pretty fast. If you can e-mail us at:, send us your headshot and resume, we can put you on the waiting list for the 17th, in case someone cancels? Once I have your e-mail address we can discuss this further. Thanks!

  5. La Petite Morgue will be holding face-to-face auditions on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 9. Time slots are still available between 4:30 and 6:00pm. If you are interested, please e-mail us as soon as possible at:
