Audition TIps

Pay attention to upcoming audition dates for the shows you’re interested in.

Read through the “audition lines” and “character lists descriptions” to help you determine which role is a best fit for you.

Come to the audition. You only need to show up once during the posted audition hours/dates.

The actual audition is very simple! Arrive any time during the posted hours. About 5-10 kids at a time are taken in to be seen. During that time you can read audition lines, sing a brief song, or do nothing at all.

Our auditions are informal. We treat them like a brief performance workshop, where we’ll play performance games. We’re looking for how well you follow directions, how directable you are, and how comfortable and expressive you are on stage.

After the audition, you’ll be given a handout with instructions on when/where to check on a role for the production, when rehearsals begin, and the date of the production’s Parent Meeting.

All scripts, schedules, questions and rules are covered during the Parent Meeting.  Registration fees are to be paid during the Parent Meeting as well.

I love TKTC! This is my 5th show and everyone at the theatre has become like an extended family! TKTC is like my second home where I go every weekend to sing, dance, act (especially) and have loads of fun! I am very excited about my new role as a TKTC intern! I love getting the chance to help younger kids develop and grow as aspiring actors or actresses. TKTC is a truly amazing place! — Peyton B.
