Performances June 26 - June 28, 2020
Actors in grades 6 through 12 (during the time of auditions) may audition. No experience is required, but roles are selected by audition.
Auditions usually occur 8 weeks before a show is to open, and are on two consecutive nights, usually between 4:30 – 6:30 pm. Actors should arrive at the beginning of the audition and expect to remain for the duration. Actors only need to attend one day of auditions. Auditions require singing, acting and dancing.
Audition forms require parental signature before an actor can be cast in a show. Broadway Teen Workshops involve parental participation in a variety of forms, including volunteering, providing costumes as per costumer instructions, and making sure that their child is at all rehearsals on time and prepared.
Some actors will be asked to return for a "callback," that is, a second look. The called back actors may be asked to sing a song from the show and to do more extensive readings than in the "regular" audition phase. Callbacks are on the third night, usually from 5:00 – 7:00.
Please remember that an actor may still be cast even if not called back, and an actor may be called back but still not cast depending on what was marked on the audition form. The director may choose to call the actors and offer roles, however, the cast list will be posted on the website by end of day on the Friday following auditions, unless there is a need for additional auditions.
When you fill out an audition form for any show you will come across the question, "Will you accept ensemble? Yes or No". Please do not say "yes" unless you truly intend to accept an ensemble role in the production. Please remember that you have a far better chance of getting cast if you are willing to accept any role or ensemble part offered to you as opposed to only wanting particular roles. The fewer roles you indicate you will accept, the fewer options the director has for casting you.
Participating in a production is a big time commitment. Be sure you are prepared to commit to all rehearsals and mandatory dates before you audition. Rehearsals for all workshops will be Monday and Tuesdays from 4:30 - 6:30 for 7 weeks followed by three (3) performances.
