Auditions are a wonderful way for students to gain self-confidence and experience in performing in front of people. Currently enrolled CP Theatre students ages ages 8-18 have the opportunity to audition for a Broadway-style production that is presented at the end of each session.
Once you have registered for classes, you may sign up for an audition time. You will find the Sign-Up link on your class confirmation page. Log into your MyCPT and click "View Confirmation".
Students ages 8 to 18 and enrolled in CP Theatre classes are eligible to audition for our shows.
Students need to prepare a one-minute vocal audition as well as learn and perform a short dance routine as part of the audition process. The dance routine will be made available to you a week before audition. Parents and friends are invited to watch auditions.
Callback announcements are located on your MyCPT family page. The callback process is a closed procedure. Students are to be dropped off and picked up promptly according to their given callback time. We recommend students participating in callbacks bring water bottles. Note: receiving a callback does not necessarily mean you've been cast and NOT receiving a callback does not necessarily mean you haven't been cast. Cast lists will be posted on the website.
Please bring the following to your audition and rrive at least 30 minutes before your audition time slot.
If you are enrolled in CP Theatre classes (and are age 8-18), you are invited to audition for that session's production. Auditions typically consist of a one-minute song performed for the Artistic Team, followed by performing a short dance routine in a small group. The audition process may also include a “callback” (on Saturday) in which you may be asked to read, sing, and/or dance for a specific role in the production. Auditions are a wonderful way for you to gain self-confidence and to show the best of your talents!
Callback notifications will be made via your MyCPT family account. If your student has received a callback, there will be a box under your family summary that contains all of the information.
Casting a show is a complex process. We want to help you understand some of the factors that go into casting decisions.
There are some things you can do absolutely nothing about which may have a bearing on casting. These include your height, the height of others, your vocal range, what specific parts are available in a particular production, the sizes of previously constructed costumes as well as a myriad of other uncontrollable factors.
However, there are some things you can do that may affect the outcome of your audition.
