The Grand Youth Theatre presents a musical production every fall, starting just as school begins. These performances are one hour in length and provide young performers the opportunity to explore theatre while putting together a show. They work with a director, music director, and choreographer.
You must be at least seven years old by the audition date and no older than 18. Roles are available for males and females ages 7 to 18—all voice parts.
Prepare a one-minute age-appropriate monologue. And one verse/chorus of a Disney or age-appropriate Broadway song. Bring recorded accompaniment (CD or MP3) without voices. Also be prepared to learn a short dance combination with our choreographer (bring tennis shoes or dance shoes). Dance auditions will be done in groups.
Rehearsals are typically Mondays and Thursdays from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The week before each performance is tech week, which is required. On Thursday morning of that week, we host schools for two productions. We have two public performances at the end of the week.
Typically, the Grand Youth Theatre Program’s musicals occur in October or November.
