2013-2014 Youtheatre Season Audition Dates
Let Me Be Your Star Concert - June 2 and 3 at 4:00 PM
Open to individuals ages 10 and up who have previously participated in a Youtheatre show. Youtheatre Alumni welcome. If interested in auditioning, please prepare a musical or dance number either by yourself, with a duet partner, or with a small group. These numbers should be completely prepared at the time of auditions, and rehearsals will be used to make minor adjustments. Broadway/show tunes will be primarily featured, but some mainstream music may be used as well. If your number is not chosen for the concert, you may be asked to participate in group numbers. Please bring sheet music if auditioning with a musical number, and CD if auditioning with dance. The concert will be comprised of acts presented at these auditions, as well as additional individual/group performances selected by the director (Emily) and musical director (Andrew). Concert dates are July 21 and 22. If you'd like help choosing music, or if you have any questions, please email Emily or Andrew

Worried About Auditioning? Don't Be!
How to Prepare
Find a monologue. If you have been in a play/musical before, you may use a selection from there. Otherwise, you should find an age-appropriate (i.e. a young character) monologue from a play, musical, movie, or even a short poem. Monologues can be found online or in collections at bookstores. You should try to memorize your monologue - but it is not necessary (although it does show dedication!).
Find a song. You should select a song you like to sing in a comfortable key. Sheet music is available online, or at a music or book store. Whatever song you choose should have accompaniment - sheet music or a CD with NO lyrics. Bring this with you to the audition. There will be a pianist at the auditions to play your music for you.
Practice, Practice, Practice! Rehearse ahead of time in front of familiar people - parents, friends, or a music teacher. Practice with someone playing the piano for you. This is very important because the piano accompaniment may not be exactly what you're used to hearing on a recording or video. Take time to sing with a piano.
Know the play/musical you are auditioning for. Perusal scripts are available for checkout (with a $10 deposit) at the Erie Playhouse Box Office 2-3 weeks before auditions.
When you arrive at auditions, you will be asked to fill out an audition form. This form includes: contact information and previous theatre experience, a place to list scheduling conflicts, performance dates and times, and other important information.
After you have filled out your audition form, you should keep it with you. When you audition, you will be called by the number on the top, right-hand corner of your audition form. Please take your audition form, the song with musical accompaniment and your monologue/poem with you.
There may also be a movement or dance audition. The choreographer will teach a dance or movement combination to small groups. Each group will then perform the combination for the director.
Important Things to Remember
comfortable clothing to the audition and have a neat, physical appearance.
Have a lot of when you audition.
Be , starting with the first person you see at the audition, all of the others who are there to audition, and those in the audition room.
yourself to the director, music director, choreographer, and piano player. These people will most likely be in your audition.
Say when the audition is over.
If you have any other questions about auditioning, contact Emily for more details.
