See yourself on stage!
Auditions are a wonderful way for students to gain self-confidence and experience in performing in front of people.

Who Can Audition?
Students ages 8 to 18 and enrolled in CYT Wichita 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 MYCYT account page. The callback process is a closed procedure. Student 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. Arrive at least 30 minutes before your audition time slot.

Helpful Audition Information
Auditions are limited to registered CYT Students between the ages of 8-18.
Auditions are limited to a one minute segment of your vocal selection.
Choose a Broadway style show tune to fully display your vocal & characterization talent.
No a cappella singing; NO IPODs, MP3s or phones will be allowed in auditions. Please only bring instrumental CD.
Make sure your song is within your vocal range.
No costumes or props are allowed.
Confidence is key! If you are not a singer, that's okay! Give the directors a show and win them over.
In most cases an upbeat song is best. Show energy and enthusiasm! Directors want actors who will look comfortable on stage. Be sure to smile.
Walk-ins will still be accepted on audition night, but must register for classes upon arrival and wait for an available time.
Do not sing a song from the show for which you are auditioning; this is considered poor theater etiquette.
