Auditions are a wonderful way for students to gain self-confidence and experience in performing in front of people. CYT encourages all eligible students to audition. Enrolled students ages 8-18, or who will be age 8 by the end of the last show of the session, are welcome to audition. NOTE: Children age 7 who are eligible to audition must be enrolled in an age 8-12 class.
There is a wealth of information about auditions at Audition FAQ
and we encourage both new and returning students to read over.
Regular, consistent class attendance is required in order to participate in performance opportunities. Though the classes are completely separate from the shows, we believe the classes provide important training that will build confidence and help develop good auditioning and performance skills. It is in class where students learn and develop the theatrical skills they will need for performing on stage.
This year, in order to maintain our licensing agreements, cast size (whether it be one cast or two) will be dependent on talent, the amount of roles listed in the script, as well as the number of characters deemed by the publishing company as the total amount necessary for ensemble.
We are making our best effort to provide our families with as much information as possible so there are no surprises regarding casting prior to auditions.
