Photo If you have’t already emailed us one, bring a passport sized photo so we can recognise you.

Adelina and Ruth will make decisions about who will join Quantum Leap shortly after the workshop. We will mail and email results of the audition on Tuesday 19 February. No results will be given by phone.

Remember that we are looking for a variety of skills, so don’t be put off by others seeming to be more experienced in one form or another — just enjoy yourself and do your best in each section. I look forward to seeing you there, and thanks again for your interest.
