ATY auditions for "Beauty & the Beast Jr. " and "The Three Musketeers"
Auditions for August 24 from 2:00-4:30 pm or August 25 from 6-8:30 pm
Auditioners only need to come to one day of auditions and will be excused when finished. Auditions held in order of appearance. Two shows audition at once.
Come to auditions prepared to do cold readings from the script and dress to mov.! Auditioners should prepare a short song to be performed without accompaniment. All auditioners are encouraged to memorize a short monologue/passage from any play to recite from memory (30-60 seconds max). A passage to read aloud will be provided for those without a prepared piece. Auditioners that do not yet read should come prepared to share a memorized poem, nursery rhyme or joke.
Shows will perform at the Sydney Laurence Theatre in the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts, October 10-18. Performers will need to miss 1 or 2 partial days of school for school-time performances. Rehearsals generally take place 6-8:30 pm or 6-9 pm Mon-Fri, Tue-Sat, or Sun-Thu. Sat/Sun rehearsals are usually in the afternoon. The director will determine the rehearsal schedule after auditions. Come prepared to note any pre-existing plans (trips, other after school activities) on the audition form. There is a $100 actor participation fee (a contribution toward show expenses) for all performers 18 and younger that are selected to participate in the production. Scholarship applications and payment plans available. ATY has a "kid-first" casting policy which gives developing actors casting preference over adult actors. From time to time adults may be cast in ATY plays to provide mentorship and to role-model professional practices.
