Ugly looks quite a bit different from his darling duckling brothers and sisters. The other animals on the farm are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother's protective flapping. Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl finds himself on an adventure of self-discovery, all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat. Along the way, Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out being different is not a bad thing to be.

Adapted for young performers, Honk! JR. is a heartwarming celebration of being different that is sure to delight audiences of all ages with its sparkling wit, unique charm and memorable score.  Witty and hilarious, but also deeply moving, Honk! JR. will treat the audiences to equal amounts of laughter and tears.

Auditions are for CYT Students ages 8-18. Auditions are open, as 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 introduce themselves with energy and confidence, and sing a song in his/her range. It is important to smile, project, and be well prepared in every way. Some students may prefer to present a one-minute monologue or comic routine, or a one-minute dance routine, if they feel this would 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.

MusicYou will be able to upload your music to the link sent you to in an email. You may also have a friend or family member who plays a keyboard or guitar accompany you. 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 Tuesday the 29th after auditions, at First Baptist Church in Auburn. 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 auditions.

Callbacks will also be held Tuesday the 29th immediately after dance auditions, at First Baptist Church. CYT callbacks are closed to everyone except the show directors. The Artistic team 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 home page of our website..
CYT TV live casting will be Sunday, February 3rd at 4pm.
