How do auditions work?
At CYT, auditions are an open casting call; nothing is precast. Any student 8-18 enrolled in classes is eligible to audition. Students have “2 minutes to shine”. We ask that each student prepares a 1 minute song and a monologue from the monologue list provided. A karaoke/backing track is required for your song. iTunes sells many options. Your karaoke/backing track will need to be uploaded to the CYT Database 24 hours before your audition. Visit the show specific page or the links on the show page to upload your song.
Students will start the process by performing their song and monologue one at time within their group. (time slot) This is an open audition time where we all support each other and cheer one another on. Then students will go to choreography in a closed session. All students will learn the 'mover' version of a dance and, if desired, a 'dancer' version.
If the directing team wishes to see your child for a specific role, they will be called back during the designated callback times. You can see if your child is called back by checking your CYT Account (by logging into www.cytfred.org). Audition sign-ups are through your CYT Account also.
