YOUNG PERFORMER AUDITIONS
Every year at First Stage over 500 young performers audition for the eight Main Stage and First Steps shows in our season. We usually cast between 140-180 young performers and hope that you’ll consider auditioning for the upcoming 2015-2016 season!
GENERAL AUDITIONS for the 2015-2016 season will be held July 7 & 8, and July 27, 28 & 29, 2015.
GENERAL AUDITIONS are for any new young performer, or any young performer who would like to audition again. Auditions consist of a 30-minute session in a group of 8-10 others, with one of our directors. You will be asked to prepare a 1-minute monologue (memorized), and a 30-60 second song a capella (optional, but encouraged). From that audition, you may be asked to come to our FALL CALLBACKS for our final five shows of the season. Those call backs will take place the first two weeks of September (see below).
Sign ups for the summer general auditions will begin May 15, 2015.
