    audience/their

    Can I use "their" when referring to "the audience" or do I have to use "its"?

    Example:The audience has the chance to tell their/its stories.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    'The (members of the) audience have the chance to tell their stories.'
    or
    'The audience has the chance to tell its story.'
