WHAT TO EXPECT
Allow approximately 2 hours for the audition
No experience is necessary, but it's a good idea to practice the audition materials in advance
Parents can help you check in but are not allowed in auditions
WHAT TO BRING
A photo of yourself (it will not be returned). Label the back of the photo with: name, grade, shoe size, height
Wear shoes and clothes that allow you to move and dance easily
Bring a water bottle with your name on it
WHAT YOU DO
Arrive at the Community House 10 minutes before your scheduled audition time and look for signs to the check in room
Check in with the CTW team, get our number, get measured for height and have an additional photo taken
Actors will be divided into two groups.. Half will sing first and half will dance first. Then the groups switch.
Once you have completed both, you are done!
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER INITIAL AUDITIONS
Callbacks will be emailed sometime after all initial auditions are complete. You will be notified what roles you are called back for and what you should prepare for your callback day. Being called back does not guarantee you will be cast in the show.
If you do not receive a callback, you will also receive an email with your next steps. If you are not cast, please don't let that get you down. Use the time to keep training and please come to auditions next time! Also, please consider applying for our Stage Crew positions!
The final cast list will be posted on our website.
We have a large number of talented children auditioning for our productions. We make every effort to cast as many people as each production will allow. However, there will be children who will not be cast. The selection process is based on a child's singing, acting and dancing in the audition, their availability, as well as, the specific requirements of the show.
There are two separate casts for EVERY production. That means two children are cast for each role and children often have multiple roles. Each cast is carefully created based on the skills and needs of that specific group. Casts rehearse and perform at separate times. Requests for a specific rehearsal time can be made on your audition form, but are not guaranteed.
Being cast in a prior show does not guarantee being cast in subsequent shows.
