auditions

It’s our Junior performers turn!  With Footloose casting already in the books, it’s time for our newest actors for Aladdin, Jr.!  We will be holding auditions for our Junior Summer Theater Production on June 20 and 22!  Performers ages 6-12 are invited to join the fun!  (Please note that we let our younger actors try out the same “professional” experience and audition just like the big kids, but we work a little differently with our younger performers, with a little more hand-holding, and do everything we can to make the experience as welcoming and comfortable as possible.)  And just like our Footloose actors, the performance for Aladdin, Jr., will be held out on the big stage, under-the-star, in Monroe’s Wolfe Park.

(WE HAVE ALREADY HAD AUDITIONS FOR FOOTLOOSE AND CAST THE NAMED PARTS IN THAT SHOW, BUT IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO JOIN THE PROGRAM!  EVERYONE WHO SIGNS UP FOR EITHER OF OUR PROGRAMS GETS TO PARTICIPATE AND PERFORM!  CONTACT US IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.)  

Auditions:
Date: Tuesday, June 20, 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Location: United Methodist Church, 515 Cutlers Farm Road, Monroe

Date: Thursday, June 22, 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Location: United Methodist Church, 515 Cutlers Farm Road, Monroe

AGAIN… PLEASE NOTE:  auditions for our younger performers are mostly to let us get an idea of students’ experience in advance, let the performers meet us and see the building where the program is going to be, and kind of “try out” the auditioning experience they will have later in our Workshop program.  Everyone who registers for our programs will be able to participate and will be cast in the shows.

HOW DO AUDITIONS WORK?  HOW DO I SIGN UP?  The mission of both our programs is to strengthen young actors’ skills as well as to offer a “real world” element to  students’ theater experience. We recognize that many younger applicants may have little or no experience auditioning. Our staff works to make this process as painless as possible. Each and every role is emphasized as a key part of the whole, and no production is successful without the trust born from lead actors and ensemble members supporting each other.  Parents/students may sign up for an audition time slot by clicking the button below:

DO I HAVE TO COME EVERY DAY OF AUDITIONS?  FOR THE WHOLE TIME?  The button above will let you sign up for a specific audition time slot.  Actors only need to come for one of the two audition dates.  And they only need to come for the time slot they chose.  Just be sure to show up at the start of the time slot (e.g., if you signed up for the 4:00 – 5:30 slot, come at 4:00… not any time in between).  Unlike our Workshop actors, Junior Production actors will not have callbacks, so no need to worry about that part of the equation just yet!

WHAT IF I CAN’T MAKE AUDITIONS?    Contact us to let us know so we can discuss with you directly and see what options there might be.

CAN I JOIN THE PROGRAM AFTER AUDITIONS?  Participants who wish to join the program may do so without auditioning, but they will be cast in the ensemble.

WHY ARE AUDITIONS BEFORE THE START OF THE PROGRAM?   We produce three Broadway musicals that perform three weeks in a row, so casting before the official first day of our Workshop and Junior Program lets our actors get involved and invested in the process ahead of time so we can hit the ground running on day one.

I’VE NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE!!!  HELP!!!   For lots more information, see our other audition pages for details on Audition Info & Tips, Character Breakdowns, what to expect from Dance Auditions, and how Callbacks work.  (Note to our Junior performers for Aladdin…  these tips mostly apply to our older kids in Footloose who came in for a full audition, but we left them up just so you could see in the event they were helpful…  not all information applies.)

WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO DO???  All of our performers must register for the program prior to auditions.  (You can register for either Aladdin, Jr., or Footloose here.)  You do not have to pay for the entire program in full, but an audition deposit is required prior to auditions.  If you want to register after auditions, that’s okay too!  Again… we are a training program, and our main objective is to teach the love of acting/performing to all our students!

WE’RE EXCITED AS EVER AND CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU ALL THERE!
