To be considered for the cast, be prepared to:

  • Apply - Completing an audition application.
      EXAMPLE - CAST Application

  • Dance - Do simple movement in a small group. Different levels of movement audition are taught. Dancing roles may require further demonstration.

  • Sing – Demonstrate vocal range and quality in a one-on-one setting with a music director, or, learn a portion of music to be sung in pairs on the stage.

  • Speak – Answer the director’s questions regarding commitment and prior experience with a full, articulate voice.

To be considered for stage crew, be prepared to:

Please note:

  • All audition materials are provided.

  • Please wear clothing and shoes that are suitable for movement, but allow for your confidence and style to shine through.

  • Bring water and/or snack as auditions can take varying lengths of time.

  • Auditions last as long as it takes to see all that show to apply. Please plan to stay anywhere between 1.5 to 3 hours.


Callbacks
Why do I need to audition again?

  • A second audition, or Callback, is administered to cast principal roles, featured dancers, and clarify ensemble casting.

  • Being called back does not ensure being cast.

  • Many students are cast who are not called back. 

  • Overall, the callback will incorporate the same movement and music learned at the first audition.

  • Yet, look forward to learning additional movement, music, and speaking parts that may be presented solo or in small groups.

  • All audition materials are provided.

  • Please wear clothing and shoes that are suitable for movement, but allow for your confidence and style to shine through.

  • Callbacks are closed to parents/guardians/visitors. This is to lighten the stress for those auditioning.


Casting Considerations
What is the Director looking for?

  • Schedule conflicts, i.e., school, extra curricular activities, simultaneous casting in other productions

  • Ability to adapt to the audition process and others

  • Attitude, confidence, comfort and enthusiasm expressed during the audition.

  • Balanced diversity of entire cast, i.e., age, grade, school, level of talent, etc.

  • Level of commitment

  • Transportation

  • Please note: Students involved in concurrent production(s) will be unable to participate.

 

Notification
How do I know if I'm cast?

  • Callback audition requests are made by email or telephone.

  • Final casting decisions (Accepted, Declined, Alternate) are sent by post mail.
