Audition Information

  

Age requirements:

Actors in grades 6 through 12 (during the time of auditions) may audition. No experience is required, but roles are selected by audition.


Auditions:

Auditions usually occur 8 weeks before a show is to open, and are on two consecutive nights, usually between 4:30 – 7:00 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. 

  • Please arrive at least 15 -20 minutes before auditions in order to have time to complete all paperwork required for auditions.
  • Please bring sheet music for a song you have already learned. A pianist will be provided to accompany you.
    • Do not use a song from the show.
    • Do not sing to taped music or sing a cappella.
  • You do not have to sing an entire song. We only want to get an idea of how well you can carry a tune and follow accompaniment. Sixteen to 32 measures is all that is needed. If you are "called back", we will ask you to sing some more..
  • Bring comfortable shoes in case you are asked to dance. We do not expect you to be an expert dancer unless you are auditioning for dancing role.  
  • Please be prepared to list any and all conflicts you have for rehearsals. All rehearsal conflicts must be disclosed at the time of auditions. Conflicts are NOT allowed during Tech Week or for any of the performances.


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.


Callbacks:

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.


Cast List:

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.


Accepting Ensemble? 

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. 


Time commitment:

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 - 7:00 for 7 weeks followed by three (3) performances.
