Youth Group 2017-18 Auditions

Whitby Courthouse Theatre is excited to continue to encourage community involvement, team building, and creative expression once again through its Youth Theatre Program this fall. Our program will be accepting 25 members to begin its weekly Saturday morning workshops on Saturday September 30th. From September to December our group focuses on educational workshops from improv, theatre history, vocal lessons, choreography, to production tasks, scene work, and film studies. The group will also be heading on a team building adventure together this fall, and will attend a professional theatre show in the spring.

The auditions in September are for entrance into the theatre program, there will be another set of auditions for our members accepted into the program to audition for parts in our spring show (TBA) in December. For our auditions for acceptance into our program we are looking for youth who are excited about creating something in the theatre community, who are looking to work as a team to build something together, and who love to have fun.

Audition Date & Time: Thurday, Sept. 21 – 6-9 pm (Saturday, Sept. 23 and Sunday, Sept 24 are full)

Audition Location: Whitby Centennial Building

Auditioning

Whitby Courthouse Theatre ("WCT") is a non-profit group that welcomes all experience levels to our team. Whether this is your first stab at making a debut on stage, or your 100th, all are welcome to try out for our shows.

Specific notes will be provided here for what our Director is wanting to see for their show, but here's a few general tips to keep in mind.

  • If you can, get a look at the script ahead of time. Having a general idea of the story line and its theme will help you to decide how -you- want to interpret the character you want to audition for.
  • If you're asked to prepare a song as part of an audition, it helps if you pick something you know well and can memorize. Fumbling with sheets and getting lost during your audition can really throw you off balance for the rest of your effort.
  • Try not to bring friends/family along to "cheer" you on. If they plan to audition too thats fine, but otherwise we want to see just you.
  • Bring a resume of other shows you've been involved in, if any.
  • Bring your completed audition form to the audition. Download a copy here.
