   AUDITIONS
Auditions are an opportunity for the show director (the person in charge of the show) the musical director (person responsible for teaching you the music) and the choreographer (person who teaches the dance steps) to see what each actor has to offer the show. Sometimes they are looking for a particular look, personality or ability for certain characters. 
We conduct an “Open Audition” call. This means anyone can come and audition for the show. We will hold two types of auditions “Broadway Style” and “Group Auditions” so you can pick the one that fits you best. See our FAQ’s below for descriptions and expectations for both. Please note that for our youth productions, children who have taken part in our classes will be looked more closely when casting.

What you need for your audition:
      #1 Be familiar with the show
      #2 Audition form (Filled out) - forms will also be available at audition.
      #3 Attach your resume if you have one
      #4 Copy of your sheet music 
      #5 Attach a head shot 4x6 portrait orientation (this doesn’t need to be professional headshot. It can be a 
                  school photo or parents photo. It will not be returned)

If you are doing the Broadway Style Audition you will need a song and monologue. Click to see samples or find your own.

   AUDITION FAQ’S
WHAT TYPE OF AUDITIONS DO YOU CONDUCT?
This year we will be conducting an “Open Audition” call. This means anyone can come and audition for the show.

IS THERE AN AUDITION FEE?
No there is no fee to audition although you may need to find music for an audition song and borrow or purchase the music.

WHAT STYLE OF AUDITION SHOULD I PREPARE FOR?
Because the CFT Youth Theater program is about teaching children & youth how to be good actors we also want to train them how to do a proper Broadway Musical audition. We also understand that many children may not be ready for that level of preparation so we will conduct a simpler Group Audition phase as well. Adult auditions are conducted in a similar manner but can be adjusted depending on the style of show we are producing.

WHAT IS A GROUP AUDITION?
Group auditions do not require preparation but it is still good to be familiar with the show for which you are auditioning. Everyone shows up at the same time and will stay several hours as they are given acting exercises to do as a group and parts of songs to learn. Each actor will be assessed and scored by the directors.
         WHAT SHOULD I DO TO PREPARE FOR A GROUP AUDITION? 
         Familiarize yourself for the show. Fill out the audition sheet. Show up early for the group audition. Plan to 
         stay until auditions are over. We will teach you part of some songs and do acting exercises.

WHAT IS A BROADWAY STYLE AUDITION?*
This is a standard audition style where each actor will select part of a song (3 minutes or less) to perform and a monologue (2 minutes or less) to act out for a panel of directors. These are individual auditions done one at a time with a reserved audition 10 minute time slot.
         WHAT SHOULD I DO TO PREPARE FOR A BROADWAY STYLE AUDITION?
         #1 Research the show. Be familiar with the story line. Know the characters in the show and what that part 
         demands such as singing or memorization of a lot of lines.
         #2 Pick a monologue. A MONOLOGUE is a dramatic conversation or presentation, spoken by a single 
         character (from a play, musical, tv show, or movie), usually either to someone else or to the audience.  You 
         can select your own monologue or look through some of our suggestions. Pick one that you can connect with 
         and become that character.
         #3 Pick a song. Remember that songs need to be less than 3 minutes (under 2 is preferred). If you select a 
         long song then the directors may stop you after a couple of minutes. So if there is a great part at the end of 
         the song you want them to her you perform consider starting further into the song. 
         #4 Prepare and rehearse. Have your song and monologue memorized so that you can be free to act while 
         performing those for the directors.

WHERE DO I FIND A SONG OR MONOLOGUE?
Other broadway musicals and plays are a great source. You can use any source for your monologue or song but we require that you bring a copy of your sheet music for the pianist. There are a wealth of resources for adults as weel as youtube videos etc. If children need help selecting a monologue, click below and see some song & monologue sample choices for children.
         A notes on choosing a monologue or song. 
         Do not perform any content from the show for which you are auditioning. Remember we are a Christian run 
         organization so do not do questionable or offensive materials. If there is a particular character you want to be 
         considered for, try finding a song & monologue for a character from another show that has a similar 
         personality or song.

WHAT ARE CALLBACKS?
Some actors are asked to come back for another round of auditions where they may given part of a dance to learn with the choreographer and perform for the directors as well as singing a particular song or doing lines from a particular scene that the director thinks you might be right for. PLEASE NOTE if you do not get a callback it does not mean you have not been chosen for a part.

*Parents-We respect each young actor that comes to our auditions. When your child comes for an individual, Broadway style, audition we respect and see them as an actor regardless of age and we want them to see themselves that way. We ask that parents wait outside the audition room. When your child is with you they are “your child”. In the audition room we want them to see themselves as an actor. If your child is not ready to step into the audition room without you then please consider the group auditions.
