Want to join in the RYTC fun? As they say, the best place to start is at the beginning, and in this case, that’s an audition for one of our shows! Looking for the Audition Form? Visit – http://rytc.org/auditions-information-form/
RYTC runs three shows per season, which runs fall to spring. The first audition is generally held within a week of school starting (either before, or after, depending). This is for the fall play, which is usually performed in late October. The second audition comes right after show week, and is for our Christmas show. This is presented mid-December. The third, and final audition of the season is right after winter break (usually), and is for the spring show, generally presented in March.
You can expect something totally different from each audition that you go to. Some directors give you a specific part of the script to recite, while others want to hear you sing a song. You might be asked to tell a funny story, real or faked, or you might be asked to do a combination of these things. The most important thing to remember is to not be shy!
Arriving to Auditions
Before arriving to the audition, please fill out your paperwork. We will have a copy of it printed out when you arrive, which makes things easier for everyone. Upon arrival to auditions, which are generally held upstairs in the Randolph Arts Guild building on Sunset Avenue, you will get an information sheet containing all important information regarding the play you are auditioning for. This will generally include show dates, as well as the date of the initial parents meeting (held a few days after the cast list is released), but may not include rehearsal days and times. You can expect more information on specific rehearsal days at the parent meeting.
Next your picture will be taken and matched up with your form, which will then go to the director. Your form will be given a number and then all you have to do is wait. Of course, how long you have to wait will depend on how many people show up for the auditions as well as the individual whims of the director.
Please be prepared to wait for your turn. While we try to get everyone in and out in a reasonable time, this is not always possible. Sometimes you might have to wait just a few minutes. Other times it may be over an hour.
The Next Step
It takes a few days for the cast list to be posted, which will appear on this website. If you find your name on the list, it means you have a part in the play. Your parent or guardian must come to the parent meeting to confirm that you’ll be able to take the part, and learn about all that is involved in supporting you in a successful show!
