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. Please bring a copy of your music to the audition. Our stage manager will be able to assist you before your audition.
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 a selection of a dance and will have an opportunity to show off any specialty skills.
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. If there is a changes, our chapter coordinator will inform you.
