April 29, 2020 UPDATE
Due to the Corona Virus Pandemic, we have cancelled this year’s auditions. Stay tuned to our website or Facebook page for updates.
Thank you so much for looking into the Mandes. We are excited to announce registration for the 2020 Making a Mande Auditions! The minimum age requirement for Making a Mande audition registration is 30 years old before August 1, 2020.
Making a Mande is an audition process, for the Mande Milkshakers, which consists of a Meet and Greet, 5 practices (where you will learn and review choreography), a semi-final audition (on 7/19/2020), and a live final audition event (on 7/26/2020). We take a great amount of time, effort and consideration in choosing additions to our group, and we feel the audition process allows you to get to know us as well as we get to know you.
We are a family-friendly organization, which means we encourage the participation of all members of the family. There are opportunities for partners as well as older children to aid the group through our Milkman Team, and younger children are encouraged to participate as a Mini at designated events throughout the year.
If you are invited to join the Mande Milkshakers, following your live audition, you will have a financial obligation consisting of purchasing your costume (approximately $250) and paying your annual membership dues (approximately $350).
In addition to financial commitments, members of the Mande Milkshakers team are required to meet attendance requirements throughout the year. Members must attend 50% of practices (held twice a week, year round), and attend 50% of events we participate in and/or host throughout the year. The audition process will give you an idea of the time commitment expected from our members.
The Meet and Greet, which kicks off our audition process, will be held at the Mandeville Trailhead on May 23, 2020 from 3-5pm. By registering here, you will be reserving your spot for this event, as well as the summer audition process. All registered participants will also receive a red “Making a Mande” t-shirt to be worn throughout the audition process.
The final live audition will be held July 26th and are open to the public.
Register here for your spot in the 2020 Making a Mande Auditions!
If you have any additional questions about the team or our audition process, please email Tina Rhinehart at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, you can follow us and our events on this site’s upcoming events page and our Mande Milkshakers Facebook page.
We look forward to seeing you soon! Until then… Keep on Shaking!
