We are typically limited in the number of youth we can cast in a play by the number of roles available. Usually, this means that some young people who audition will not be cast. Do not be discouraged by this! There are many reasons why good, young actors and actresses don’t get cast. Try again and you will have a better chance of making the cut next time. If you did not make the cast list for the fall play, please consider auditioning for the spring musical, which can accommodate many more actors! Auditions for the spring musical are typically in January.
Musicals typically have a chorus and we try to cast everyone who auditions. Don’t be discouraged if you are “only” cast in the chorus. The chorus is an important part of any musical. Do a good job, “learn the ropes”, impress the director, and you will have an excellent chance at a speaking role next time!
