Auditions: Auditions will be held on September 15 and 16, 2017. You can sign up for your audition timeslot on Signup Genius.

Prepare: Please prepare a 1-2 minute song from a Broadway style musical. Pick a song that shows your range (vocal and emotional). Tell us a story through music. Bring sheet music with the piano accompaniment. Place sheet music in a 3-ring binder. There will be a chance for you to go over your music with our Music Director the week before your audition time. The link to sign up for a practice time will be on your Audition Confirmation email. If you can’t make a practice time, there will be a few minutes for you to speak with the music director before the singing portion of the audition.

What to Bring: Dance shoes (or tennis shoes), clothes you can move in, and all your audition forms

If Cast

Family Commitment: Starstruck Theatre expects performer attendance at all scheduled rehearsals. We will provide a weekly schedule with specific call times, but performers must be prepared to rehearse up to four days each week. We will take into account young children’s ages and bedtimes, but please understand that this is an undeniably strenuous schedule not just for children, but also for their families. We also require each family to contribute a minimum of 20 volunteer hours over the course of the production. There will undoubtedly be personal, family, and school events that will need to be missed as a result of being cast in the show.
