The NSAL VA/NC Chapter recently held its annual Career Awards Competition.  This year's chosen discipline is Musical Theatre, which always makes for an exciting competition.  The nine contestants first participated in a mandatory dance call led by choreographer and judge Russell Jay in which, after a warm-up, they learned a dance routine and performed it.  In the afternoon they presented their six-minute auditions consisting of two songs and a monologue.
