YOUTH THEATRE AUDITION FAQ

 

“Where do I park?”

You can park in the lot right across from the Theatre Centre. It is free to park there, though you will need to pick up a parking pass inside and place it in your car before you audition. We recommend that you pull up to the Circle Lobby doors and obtain the pass from the greeting station set up at the concession stand, before parking in the lot.

“There are two days of auditions, do I come to both?”

The short answer is: “no.” You can come to either Monday or Tuesday, whichever works best for you. Please don’t come to both audition days, it doesn’t help your chances of getting a role. However, the Callbacks for the show will be held on the Thursday immediately following the audition, so if you have a conflict with that day, please let us know at the audition.

“Is it okay to arrive at 5:00pm for the audition?”

Sort of. Yes, if you have to hurry from school and/or work to get here by 4:30pm; that is fine. Just be aware that there is an audition form that must be filled out before you can audition, so if you can arrive 15-30 minutes early, it would be less stressful for you and more helpful for us if you can have that done by 5:00pm.

“How old do I need to be to audition?”

The Youth Theatre is recommended for students in grades 4 through 12. It is recommended that you be in 4th grade to audition, though many times young actors aren’t quite ready and more likely to be cast as 5th graders. We are committed to non-traditional casting, or casting of ethnic minority actors in roles where race or ethnicity is not germane. Which means young actors of all races are encouraged to audition.

“Do I need to prepare a song or a monologue?”

No, we will provide any materials you will need. You do not need a headshot or resume, while we appreciate your previous experience, all actors are auditioned on equal footing. The only preparation necessary is that you have a list of ANY conflicts you might have with rehearsal. This is vital! We MUST know any days you will miss in ADVANCE of casting.

“Is there a fee or what does it cost to audition or perform?”

Participation at CTC is COMPLETELY FREE! You don’t have to purchase a script, or your costume…there are no fees…nothing! All we ask is that you commit to arriving to scheduled rehearsals on time and agree to attend all the rehearsals and performances that are required!

“What does “Double Cast” mean?”

We will cast two kids in each role. We do this so that the children who are cast don’t miss excessive amounts of school for those daytime school performances. It also gives us a back-up, should someone get sick, the other child cast can substitute for them. The casts also rotate performances.

“Where do I find out if I have a callback?”

Like our Facebook page and look for notices. If you don’t have Facebook, you can check our website: TheatreCentre.com. We typically announce callbacks on the Wednesday immediately following the Monday and Tuesday auditions. Callbacks are usually at 5:00pm on Thursday of that same week. If your name isn’t on the callback list, you might still be cast, so check back for a complete cast list.

“When is the cast announced?”

Usually a cast will be posted on our Youth Theatre Facebook, or Theatre Centre Facebook page or TheatreCentre.com on Friday of the same week as the audition.
