NO VIDEOTAPING!! YAY!
By the way, we cast first-timers in almost every show, so if this your first time auditioning for us (or for anything!), don't worry! We'll help you have your best audition!
If we have enough actors, we would love to do both a traditional age cast, and a fully youth cast (8-18). Keep that in mind when choosing a role to audition for. Older youth actors could easily be cast in adult roles in a youth cast.
Adults over 18:
18 and under:
Non-members $225* ($100 audition deposit, $125 workshop tuition)
YST Members $175* ($100 audition deposit, $75 workshop tuition)
*We have lowered fees for this production because it is a shorter One Act version of the story
Auditions will be held in a 30 minute blocks where each auditioner will get to read from sides in consideration for that show's full production workshop.
ALL auditioners 18 and under will pay a deposit with the registration form below. This deposit is non-refundable except under the conditions listed under "After the audition" below.

If you are interested in auditioning but are not available for this date and time, after you register, there are instructions on how to do your Video Submission in the Audition Info email. In person (via Zoom) is best, but if there's just no way you can, that's another option. However, you can't audition for more than one show in a row via video. We feel the live audition is a great experience and we want everyone to experience it whenever possible. First preference is given to live (Zoom) auditioners.
Please check your availability against the schedule below before requesting a time slot!
If cast, we will only excuse you from rehearsals with conflicts that you list BELOW today. Please remember that the fewer conflicts you have, the better chance you have at being cast.

After the audition:
Generally within a week after the final audition day you will receive an email letting you know if you are accepted into the workshop production.
1) If you are invited into the workshop CONGRATULATIONS! At that time, on receipt of the casting email, the remainder of tuition is due.
2) If you are not cast and invited into the workshop you will be refunded the deposit and we encourage you to audition again in the future.
3) If you are offered a role that you stated on your audition form that you would accept, but then choose not to participate, your audition deposit is non-refundable as we will use that for the time and resources we will need to use to recast the role.
To register, fill out the registration form below and click "Submit" to pay the audition deposit. Adult submissions, just click "Submit" and you are done.
Once that is done, you will receive a confirmation email with sides info and all of the information you need to have a wonderful audition.
