Rodgers & Hammerstein’s first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, setting the standards and rules of modern musical theatre. In a Western territory just after the turn of the 20th century, a high-spirited rivalry between local farmers and cowboys provides a colorful background for Curly, a charming cowboy, and Laurey, a feisty farm girl, to play out their love story. Their romantic journey, as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road, contrasts with the comic exploits of brazen Ado Annie and hapless Will Parker in a musical adventure embracing hope, determination and the promise of a new land.

VOCAL & PRELIMINARY DANCE AUDITIONSFriday, August 16   LOCATION: Bayside Adventure Church (6401 Stanford Ranch Road)
Students will sign up for a 20 min group audition slot sometime between 4 - 8:30pm.  Audition songs should be to music (not a capella). Please choose a track with no accompanying vocals (such as a karaoke track). Audition music should be no more than 1 minute.  The director needs to see how well the student can stay with the music, both in tune and in rhythm. You will be able to upload your music to the audition form. It's best if you have a YouTube link or an actual song - we cannot support iTunes, Spotify or Amazon files. Students will learn choreography at home via video and will come ready to perform it for the directors along with the other students in the audition group at the end of their time slot. 

CALLBACKS (including Featured Dancers): Saturday, August 17 9:00am-3:00pm. The directors will call back certain students to sing, read a scene, dance, or any combination of these. They will often ask pairs or groups of students to read scenes to see how different combinations of kids work together. CYT callbacks are closed to everyone except the show directors. Students may be released prior to 3pm. If a student is not called back, it does not mean that they will not be cast in the show.
