All who audition and can honor the rehearsal and performance schedule will receive a role. We will reach out to those via email and text who register for an audition with specifications, but typically we request a 1 minute prepared song with an instrumental vocal track on your phone/mp3 player if the show is a musical. Please arrive in comfortable, modest clothing you can move in, and know your true costuming measurements/any scheduling conflicts.

the fun and messy dance theater life.
"For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago." Eph 2:10
We know that disappointment can be very painful for children and adults alike. How a person reacts to disappointment is a tremendous test of character. Please know that the artistic teams have your best interest in mind and that casting is equally hard for the artistic team members. If you are faced with unhappiness with the results of the audition process, please use the tools below.
Casting is a difficult process, with many different factors at play. What may seem very black and white to you, may not have been to those making the decisions.
It isn’t personal. It may feel that way, but directors are concerned with putting together the best cast as a whole. You shouldn’t have any reason to think it is personal. Sometimes a role selection comes down to something as trivial as a height requirement or an individual's availability.
Think of every audition and show as an opportunity. No one part is the end of anything and there will a lot more parts and auditions if you choose to audition again. We are all growing and getting better at what we do every day, even adults.
A role may not always be what it seems upon first impression. Read the script. Find the fun little nuggets within a role that has been chosen for you and only you! We promise that every spot on stage has something (often many things!)
The hard part about theatre is that it is never fair. You can get a small part from the best audition in your life or a big part from one that you felt was terrible. It is not possible for you to know what the Artistic Team is looking for or how the show will come together. If you have a child and find that the audition and casting process is too hard, it might be time to have a serious talk about theatre as an activity for your child. Some children especially are more sensitive and the casting process, no matter the preparation, might remain too much.
