Auditions

General Auditions
Date: September 16

Time: 2:30-5:00

Location: Phoebe Hearst (Cafeteria)
 

Once you have submitted your completed online registration and tuition payment, you will receive a Dropbox email with a link to download the audition music.

 

  1. Prepare one song from the Frozen Jr. soundtrack. (We will hear about 1 minute.)

  2. Choose one audition side (scene) from the Broadway Jr. website.  Follow the link below to Broadway Jr.'s “Audition Central”.  Select “Disney's Frozen Jr” from the drop down menu.  There you will find a list of the characters in the show. Choose ONE side (under the “script” column) for your audition.  A reader will read the opposite role with you. (click here)

Auditions will begin with a quick warm-up and short dance combination.  Cast members will then perform their chosen song and scene. You are allowed to leave once you have finished your audition and your parent has signed you out.  We start with the youngest cast members first so they can be excused first.  The oldest cast members should expect to stay until the end.  We may run late.

For those who are not comfortable auditioning, it will not be required.  You will still be cast in the ensemble.  Even if you are not planning to audition, please come to the audition day so you can see what it's like, the directors can meet you, take your picture, and give you your script.

Audition tips:

  • Please have all audition material memorized.  

  • Think about the words to your song and act it out.

  • We want to see your personality and character.


Callbacks
Date: September 18

Time: 2:30-5:00
Location: Phoebe Hearst Cafeteria

The callback list and schedule will be emailed after the general auditions. Those called back will be asked to read sides from the script, and sing for specific roles. We may not need to see everyone for a 
callback.  Please remember, all registered participants will be cast in the show and will have a lot to work on!  It's going to be so much fun, no matter what part you get.  Every part is important!
