can we audition even if we have no prior theatrical experience but determined to be part of the cast? I mean, I can sing and move and play the piano, 1/4 Chinese (my father is mestizo), obsessed with musical plays too. Unfortunately, my course in UP is engineering. I heard engineering students are usually discouraged in auditioning.

And what's with this Peking Opera techniques during the audition? does it apply for the males too?

Hey aspiring_actor!

Please come and audition. If you know you can do all that, we will audition you. Hindi naman limited sa mga theater majors ang auditions.

See you and good luck!

Vincent DeJesus
