YOUNG PERFORMER AUDITIONS
GENERAL AUDITIONS FOR YOUNG PERFORMERS FOR THE 2016-2017 SEASON HAVE CONCLUDED. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO AUDITIONED.
We have cast all of the young performers for the season in our Main Stage shows, First Steps shows and Foundry series.
This year, we had over 480 young performers audition for the six Main Stage and two First Steps shows in our season. We usually cast between 140-180 young performers. If you missed this year, we encourage you to look out for our general auditions in the summer of 2017. (late June and late July)
For GENERAL AUDITIONS, we ask for a 1-minute memorized monologue, and a 30-60 second song. The audition takes about 30 minutes and the directors are encouraging and lead you through some exercises and improvisations. We cast young performers from ages 8-18 as those are the ages of the roles that we look for.
For CALL BACKS, you will be invited to any number of call backs and be given material from the show to prepare. CALL BACKS for the first three productions of the year are in May of 2017, and call backs for the final five shows of the year are in August/September of 2017.
If you have any questions about young performer auditions at First Stage, please contact Company Manager Jeff Schaetzke at email@example.com.
