Junior Audition Information

AUDITIONS HELD IN MAY & OCTOBER

GENERAL AUDITIONS (Required):

At your 5 minute audition time slot, we will be asking you to sing one prepared song selection (approx. 30 seconds to 1 minute from a Broadway Musical). Audition materials including an audition form and a list of characters & synopsis of the show will be provided when auditions are announced. All auditioners must fill out the audition form prior to their audition.

DANCE AUDITIONS (Optional):

We will be warming up as a group and learning a short dance combination together. If you wish to be considered as a Featured Dancer, sign up for a Dance Call in addition to your General Audition.

CALLBACKS (By Invitation Only):

If we are considering you for a lead or supporting role in the show, you may have a callback! At callbacks you will be asked to learn & sing a portion of a song from the show, and read a scene or two. We will provide more details if you are selected for a callback after your general audition.

Junior FAQ:

Want to be in a show?!

Jr. Productions are the ultimate musical theatre experience. Join us for a comprehensive journey through the full musical production process! You will get to experience auditioning, harmonies, teamwork, singing, dancing, and performing for friends & family at the Village Theatre in Danville!

How do I join?

The Jr. Program is audition based. All students must audition in order to be considered to be a part of a Junior production. Open auditions are held in May for the Fall production and in the October for the Spring Production.

Is experience needed?

Anyone can audition to be a part of the Jr. Program. Experience in prior shows, taking classes, or any other outside training can help better prepare you for the audition and all the responsibilities that come with being a part of full musical production.

Does everyone get a speaking part?

When you audition for a Junior Show, you are auditioning to be part of the cast. There is no guarantee that you will be cast as a lead, supporting, or any named role. A majority of the actors in a musical are typically cast as part of the ensemble (a group who do not have solo lines, but acts as a whole and participates in many important scenes throughout the show). Learn more on our Auditions & Casting page!

How big of a commitment is being in a Jr. Production at ICDT?

Outside of our 4-6 hours of rehearsal each week, students will have homework including memorizing lines and songs, rehearsing their dances, and researching their character. Micaela recommends carving out 30-45 min per week for rehearsing at home. This can be spread out over a few days or done all at one time. It’s important that the actors reinforce things learned in rehearsal at home. Work with your child to create a schedule so they have time to finish both their school homework and their homework from the musical.

What are the expectations of our Jr. Production actors?

Each actor is responsible for learning their assigned role or "track." Once a dance routine is taught, we expect actors to practice it independently and approach a director with any questions or requests for assistance as needed. In the event that an actor misses a class, it is their responsibility to utilize rehearsal videos or reach out to the dance captain to catch up on any material they may have missed. This ensures that everyone remains well-prepared and contributes to the success of the production.

When will we know if we are in?

The Jr. Program Directing Team will let the auditioners know whether or not they have been cast via email prior to registration opening for our general class enrollment. This email will also let the auditioners know which cast (Mon/Weds or Tues/Thurs) they are a part of if they have been selected. Roles will be emailed out to the cast prior to the start of rehearsals. 

Where can we find materials for the show?

A week before the first day of rehearsal Micaela will send out a welcome email to all the families. In this welcome email there will be a link to the current Jr. Production Google classroom. Micaela encourages all her actors to register in her google classroom as a way to take full responsibility for their show. Here you will find all practice materials for our Jr. productions. This includes: Music, the script, choreography and rehearsal videos, director notes, and important reminders.

Why is consistent attendance so important? 

Students who miss rehearsals struggle to catch up, impacting overall cast progress and cohesion. Like a sports team, everyone's participation is crucial for success. Missed classes may result in students not being included in scenes or songs due to limited rehearsal time. Creating musical theatre cannot be done with only one person;  every member of the cast is incredibly important to the overall production. We ask that you prioritize being at rehearsal on time and ready to go.

Why are Tech days mandatory?

Tech rehearsals are vital just before opening night. Onstage, alterations to dance formations and blocking may happen. Practicing in full costume with all show elements is essential for an actor's peak performance.

Do I need to provide a costume for my child?

Costumes will be provided for all characters, however we may ask that families supply the proper shoes and a base-layer for their actor’s costumes. For example, jazz shoes, a white tank top and leggings, something that can be easily worn underneath but the actor still feels comfortable changing in the dressing room.

How can I buy tickets for the performances?

Ticket information will be sent out 1-2 months prior to the event. All tickets must be purchased through The Village Theater website.
