Music Theater FAQs
here are the most frequently asked questions
1. Will any rehearsal conflicts be accepted?
Yes - Cast Members can miss up to three rehearsals without their role being changed or modified. They cannot miss any of the Saturday Rehearsals, or the Tech Week Rehearsals.
2. What are the fees and costs associated with being a cast member?
3. What are the Audition requirements?
Please come prepared with approximately 16 bars of something to sing. You may bring either sheet music for our accompanist or a karaoke track to sing with. Students may also be asked to do a brief reading from the script.
4. Age requirement/range?
In general - the age range is 8 - 19, although some exceptions will be made in instances of a young experienced performer.
5. when are auditions?
4S Ranch/Del Sur - Auditions will begin on Wednesday, November 7th at 6 PM at the Music Pillars studio, followed by callbacks on Thursday, November 8th at 6 PM. We will continue the process until we have identified and have agreements from all of our cast members. To place yourself on the audition list - please complete this form for 4S Ranch/Del Sur.
La Jolla - Auditions will begin on Wednesday, November 14th at 3 PM in the Music Room, followed by callbacks on Thursday, November 15th starting at 3pm. We will continue the process until we have identified and have agreements from all of our cast members. To place yourself on the audition list - complete this form for La Jolla.
6. WHAT WILL CALLBACKS ENTAIL?
Callbacks typically will be held the following day, but we reserve the right to modify that based upon scheduling demands that we have. We will start with a simple dance audition followed by additional reading and singing from the script and score. Just because you did not receive a callback does NOT mean that you will not be cast. Likewise, just because you are called back for a particular role, doesn’t mean it is the only role you are being considered for. Sometimes we just need to hear/see more in order to complete the casting puzzle!
7. where are rehearsals held?
4S Ranch rehearsals will be at 10710 Thornmint Rd, Suite 201 (Inside the YY Art Center), San Diego, CA 92127 beginning January 10th.
