One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town's youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend's rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren's reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin' rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.

Auditions are for CYT Students ages 8-18 who are currently enrolled in a class. Auditions are open and friends and parents are encouraged to stay and cheer on the students who are auditioning. Watching other participants is a valuable learning opportunity. Auditions are limited to ONE MINUTE in length. This is a time for your child to show the best of his or her talents. We recommend that your child sing a song in his/her range, add movement or dance, and introduce him/ herself with energy and confidence. It is important to smile, project, make eye contact with the directors, and be well prepared in every way. Some students only have one skill that they feel confident with, and they may adapt the audition to highlight that talent. For example, a one-minute monologue or comic routine, or a one-minute dance routine, may show a student's talents better than a song. As part of the audition process, however, your child may also be asked to sing and/or learn a short dance routine.

Music: Please bring your own accompaniment background. This could mean tracks on a phone, CD, ipod or MP3 player, or a friend or family member who plays piano, guitar or another accompanying instrument. There will be a piano available at auditions. The director needs to see how well the student can stay with the music, both in tune and in rhythm.

Dance Auditions will be held the Saturday following auditions. All students who audition must attend the dance audition. Students will be taught a dance(s) from the show, and then be asked to perform it for the directors. Parents are welcome to stay and watch the dance audition.

Callbacks will follow the dance auditon. CYT callbacks are closed to everyone except the show directors. The directors will call back certain students to sing again, read a scene, dance some more or any combination of these. They will often ask pairs or groups of students to read scenes to see how different combinations of sizes and personalities work together. However, just because a student is not called back does not mean that he or she will not be cast in the show.

For additional audition information (plus so much more), check out the Parent's Guide to CYT on the home page of our website.
