***PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE NOTICE PRIOR TO AUDITIONS***
Auditions are open to students in Grade 1-12. This show will highlight our Middle School cast, but other grades may be cast in lead roles.
Prior to auditions, please complete the Actor Registration form online (if you have not completed it online in the past): http://ytnbc.org/?page_id=1224
Come prepared with a 16 measure selection (the length of one verse or chorus) from a musical theatre song. If you do not have a particular song, you may sing “Happy Birthday.” Also, be prepared to do a cold reading from the script. PLEASE NOTE: Actors who come prepared have a better shot at being cast in a role.
Bring your calendar so you can list any potential conflicts on your audition form. The call schedule will be based on scenes, so it is essential that we know when characters are available for rehearsals. Absences listed on the audition form are considered excused.
Rehearsals are normally Tuesdays and Thursdays 6-8:00 pm, Saturdays 9am-noon and Sundays 1-4:00 pm and will be called by scene or song.
