Auditions Time! September 3-5, 2015

Calling all jokesters! The Mental Notes want you to audition for comedy a cappella! What is comedy a cappella you ask? We have no idea. We think it involves some singing, jokes, and being generally ridiculous, so if you think that sounds AWESOME (which you totally should), you should sign up here: Audition Signup Form
