Winter/Spring 2017

Come join us for our winter/spring session of classes* and audition for our show! Classes meet once a week. Meet the teacher night and auditions will be held Thursday, December 15th, with call backs being on Saturday, December 17th. Classes begin the first week of January! Each core class offered will be focusing on gaining more skill and knowledge in dance, voice, acting or specialty! Come have fun dancing and singing to musical theater tunes or performing a short scene or monologue from a classic Broadway show! All classes conclude with a performance following their last class to showcase all the wonderful skills they have learned during their sessions!

*All classses are subject to cancelation if minimum student enrollment is not met.

Class times and locations are as follows: Four Points location (Austin Baptist) Mondays from 5-7/Thursdays from 5-7 at Bethany United Methodist.  

*All students from both locations will attend the "meet the teacher night' (which is an introduction to the class) on Thursday, December 15th. Students who plan to audition for the main stage production are required to stay immediately following to audition for the show. There will be a short parent meeting the first 20 minutes of the opening night. Call backs will be held Saturday, December 17th. This will allow for all students to start their classes the same week and to audition together following their first class (see audition information below) which builds unity and excitement among the students, and for all parents to attend a required short meeting during the first 20 minutes of class. All subsequent weeks,  the Four Point students will meet at Austin Baptist.

Session Fees: $195.00

All students, ages 8-18, enrolled in the CYT Winter/Spring session, will be eligible to audition for our show! Open auditions will be held following their first class. All students, regardless of class day or location, must attend the meet the teacher night and audition on Thursday night, December 15th. Again, this gives students a better understanding of how auditions work and the opportunity to get to know the other students auditioning. Closed call backs will be held Saturday, December 17th from 9-1, at Bethany. Cast list will be posted on Sunday,  December 18th. Please note that once a student has auditioned, refunds will not be given for tuition. In order to maintain our mission and training in the arts goal, we require that students stay in training to be involved in one of our productions. Classes resume the first week of January. NO classes will be held during the holidays after the initial class and auditions on December 15th. 

*Please contact me if your student cannot attend the auditions but are planning on auditioning. We highly encourage them to audition as a group.  This helps them understand the varying levels of skill, gives them practice auditioning in front of others and helps them feel more comfortable with the other students from each location. 

Rehearsals for shows are Saturdays from 9-3. ( 9-4  four weeks out from performance.) You will find everything you need to know about auditions on the side bar, along with a link to the audition form, which must be printed out, completed, signed and brought with you to your audition. Students must audition with accompaniment track with no voices (Cd, Song on Phone or sheet music.) Students may not sing acapella. (Without background music.) 

A full production parent guide manual is available on the side bar and will also be handed out and read through at the first cast parent meeting, along with more detailed instructions for students and parents. Students cast in our main stage show will be charged a production fee of 175.00. No tuition refunds given following auditions. 

Winter/Spring musical production week: Sunday, March 5th  (move in day) through Saturday, March 11th. Final show selection is dependent on enrollment and cast numbers following auditions and gender divisions. Therefore, we reserve the right to change the show based on those numbers following auditions. Dress rehearsals: March 6 & 7. Shows: March 8-11. 

Please note that the actual show weekend is the first weekend of the spring break holiday. 

Winter/Spring Show: "Beauty and the Beast."
