Students ages 8-18 who are enrolled in CYT classes are invited to audition for our mainstage production. Auditions consist of a one-minute song performed for the Artistic Team, followed by learning and performing a short dance routine in a small group. The audition process may also include a “callback” on a later date, during which the student would be asked to read for a speaking role in the play. Auditions are a wonderful way for students to gain self-confidence, and to show the best of their talents!

Auditions for the Spring 2020 show will take place on Friday, March 27, from 6:00pm-8:30pm, at Bethany United Methodist Church (with callbacks on March 28 from 9:00am-1:00pm).

Our Spring 2020 show will be held at Austin Stone Northwest. Performances will be on Wednesday May 27 at 7:30pm, Thursday May 28 at 7:30pm, Friday May 29 at 7:30pm, and Saturday May 30 at 2:30pm. 
The show title will be announced soon!

Quick Tips

  • Choose an audition song that shows the best of your talents! 
  • Introduce yourself (name, age, and song you will be singing) with energy and confidence.
  • Smile, project, make eye contact with the directors, and be well prepared in every way.
  • Feel free to add some movement, but not if it distracts from your singing.
  • You will also be asked to learn and perform a short dance routine


Not everyone is guaranteed a role after their audition. Unfortunately there are a limited number of spaces, and the number of students cast varies from show to show. However, if you are cast, here are some things to expect:
  • You must be at all rehearsals for which you are scheduled. If an absence is necessary, it must be clearly stated on your audition conflicts form. Conflicts will be taken under consideration during casting. Any cast member missing more than two rehearsals may not be able to participate in the show. Conflicts (other than illness) presented after casting will not be allowed.
  • Leaving early or arriving late is considered a conflict, and must be approved prior to casting.
  • You must attend Super Sunday and all dress/tech rehearsals.
  • You must be at all performances. 
  • You must pay a Production Fee of $175 which includes a T-shirt, and cast party meal.
  • Your parents must agree to attend two parent meetings and to serve approximately 20 hours on a production committee.


Parents must agree to the following: 

I realize that if my child is chosen for the cast, I will be responsible to make sure he/she attends every performance and every rehearsal for which he/she is scheduled. In case of illness, I will notify the Chapter Coordinator in advance. In order to ensure the quality of rehearsals and the production, I understand that two or more absences may result in dismissal from the show. I understand that students who audition are NOT eligible for a tuition refund. I understand that I will be charged a $175 Production Fee for each child. I am also responsible for the purchase of personal items (i.e., shoes, tights, make-up). I understand that I will be required to attend two parent meetings and to volunteer 20 hours as part of a parent committee. I understand that my student will be responsible for selling one ad for the program, as well as 15 tickets.
