Auditions are open to ages 8-18. No previous experience necessary. We encourage new students.
HOW TO AUDITION:
- Submit audition form
- Submit two monologues, one Writing and one Character from the audition packet, to flipgrid.com/hytauditions
- We will contact you to schedule cold reads over Zoom. We will assign an hour time slot between 6:30 and 8:30 on Tuesday the 11th and Wednesday the 12th. The director will announce these assignments on Monday evening the 10th. If anyone has a conflict within those two time frames, they should indicate it on their initial audition form.
The audition form and monologue videos need to be submitted by midnight on Sunday, August 9th.
Rehearsals will be a mix of virtual over Zoom and in-person but socially distant. When we meet in person, all students will be required to wear a mask.
Rehearsals are about 6 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. Unexused absences may result in dismissal. Be sure to communicate with the director.
Once the cast lists are decided, they will be emailed and posted on our website. If a child is not cast, they are invited and encouraged to audition for the next show.
There is a participation fee to perform. 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.
