HOW TO PREPARE:

Students should prepare a short monologue for the audition. We encourage a monologue from excerpts listed below. When choosing a monologue, choose one that will best showcase your talents. Do not choose based on what is a “boy” or “girl” part. We do not expect the monologues to be memorized.

In addition, students should be prepared to do cold readings from the scripts, play some games, and demonstrate movement and character skills.

CAST LISTS:

Once the cast lists are decided, they will be emailed and posted on our website.

REHEARSALS:

Rehearsals are about 4 weeks long and a schedule will be provided. Occasionally, a Saturday or Sunday may be required. Actors are expected to be at all rehearsals and performances unless pre-approved by the director. Unexposed absences may result in dismissal. Be sure to communicate with the director.

COSTS:

There is a $30 participation fee to perform in the Festival of Shorts. A discount may be given to siblings and scholarships may be available. No additional fees will be required. One script is provided for each actor. Students may be required to provide some of their own costume pieces. HYT asks for parent participation by handing out programs, ushering, costumes, helping with performances, advertising, refreshments, or snacks. Sign up opportunities will be provided.
