If you are enrolled in CYT classes (and are age 8-18), you are invited to audition for that session's productions. Auditions typically consist of a one-minute song performed for the Artistic Team, followed by learning and performing a short dance routine in a small group. The audition process may also include a “callback” in which you may be asked to read, sing, and/or dance for a specific role in the production. Auditions are a wonderful way for you to gain self-confidence and to show the best of your talents! FALL 2019 AUDITION SIGN-UPS OPEN MON., AUGUST 5 at 10am!
TO SIGN UP FOR AN AUDITION, YOU MUST BE LOGGED INTO YOUR ACCOUNT AND REGISTERED FOR A CLASS. See Video for more information!
All Audition Forms are now available online! Please see the "Links" button to find your Audition Submission Form!
In person auditions are strongly encouraged for the benefit of both you and our directing teams, however, we understand families sometimes have conflicts with our audition dates. If you would like to submit a video audition you may film a video of your student singing 60 seconds or less of a song of their choice and, if applicable, them dancing 60 seconds or less of a choreographed routine. The audition video should be emailed to the production coordinator for the specific show in which you are auditioning no later than the day of the audition by 12:00 noon.
How Does Casting Work?
Casting a show is a complex process. We want to help you understand some of the factors that go into casting decisions.
There are some things you can do absolutely nothing about which may have a bearing on casting. These include your height, the height of others, your vocal range, what specific parts are available in a particular production, the sizes of previously constructed costumes as well as a myriad of other uncontrollable factors.
However, there are some things you can do that may affect the outcome of your audition.
PREPARATION: Prepare the best audition that you can. For callbacks, research the show and learn about the parts. If sides are provided, work with them until your callback.
BEHAVIOR: Directors want to work with people who behave well, and they may ask your Chapter Coordinator and others about you. Don’t harm your chances of being cast in a show by exhibiting poor behavior in class, at rehearsals, at shows, and even at auditions and callbacks.
PARENTS: This is also good advice for parents. Don’t harm your student’s chances by exhibiting poor character or behavior. Your behavior is also factored into difficult casting decisions.
VOCAL TRAINING: Take CYT classes and/or private voice instruction to improve your vocal range and performance.
DANCE TRAINING: Lack of dance ability often keeps good singers and actors from getting parts in musical theater. Take CYT classes and/or dance instruction to improve your skills.
READINGS: Show the director good character development and appropriate emotion at callbacks.
Good advice: do what you can do, don’t worry about what you can’t do, and leave the final decision to the Lord!
