Oh boy...time to pack your gig bag and make-up kit and join the HAR circus.  Make your family, friends and neighbors green with envy when you tell them you get to play a depressed seagull, a crazed Alice in wonderland, a middle age virgin, or a furry critter of some ilk.

That's right, auditions are coming up.  Here's the scoop:
