You're free to request tickets like everyone else, but unfortunately we can not make special concessions for friends/family of auditioning artists.  However, the artists do each get a few tickets through production.  You may want to talk to your friend and see if he/she can help.  If not, simply find out when he/she is performing, and request for that day.  Hopefully, you'll get them.  There are many fans of this show, and we want to give tickets to as many as possible. For that reason, we don't make special arrangements.
