Students ages 8-18 who are enrolled in a CYT class are invited to audition for the current production. Auditions typically consist of a one-minute song performed for the Artistic Team and are open to friends and family.  Next, auditioners return for an open dance audition (usually the following Saturday.)   The audition process also includes a “callback” in which some students may be asked to read or sing from the show for a specific role, and this portion of auditions is "closed."  Auditions are a wonderful way for students to gain self-confidence and to show the best of their talents!

How to sign up for an audition

Interested in auditioning for one of our upcoming productions? 

First, you must be registered for a class! As you are registering, you will be asked if you would like to sign up for an audition time. At that point, you may request an audition appointment. If you do not want to sign up at that moment, you can later go into your family account and request an audition appointment through there.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Chapter Coordinator for your show. The contact information for each coordinator can be found at the bottom of each show page.

Quick Tips

  • You are limited to one minute. Your song must be between 30-60 seconds long. Show the best of your talents!
  • Introduce yourself with energy and confidence.
  • Smile, project and be well-prepared in every way.
  • Sing an appropriate song in your range – a children’s song or show tune is recommended.
  • Accompaniment requirements can include sheet music or an instrumental only track (MP3's, iPods, CDs). Please check the show page specific to the show for which you are auditioning to find out what you need.
  • Perform a monologue, dance routine, or other special skill if you aren’t a singer.
  • You will also be asked to learn and perform a short dance routine.
