CHILD AUDITIONS

Are you a young person ready to perform on the Muni stage?

Children’s auditions take place annually in March. To prepare, families are encouraged to attend the annual February workshop,

where you will hear from each of the show directors as they discuss their vision for the show and what they are looking for in those auditioning.

 

Muni staff are also on hand to answer questions and provide tips for a successful audition. Sign up for the Muni Mailing List and receive Sightlines, our annual newsletter, which explains audition steps and lists parts available in each show.

The Muni Auditions Workshop

Sat, Feb. 15 at 10:00am - 12:00pm | Hoogland Center for the Arts

After being provided with some basic information about the audition process, attendees will hear from the directors of each show about their vision for their production, what they are looking for in cast members and likely rehearsal schedules. Afterwards, attendees will have the opportunity to visit “subject matter expert” volunteers to ask questions about vocal auditions, dance auditions, audition form completion, and general questions about auditions and what being in a Muni show really means. There will also be volunteers to sign up volunteers for the summer! Attendees will find the staff members of all four shows who will be available for questions. Attendees will be able to obtain the designated URL/code in order to go online Saturday after the workshop to select an audition spot before the online registration process is open to the public. Can’t attend the audition workshop? You can still sign up for an audition time slot starting February 16, 2020 HERE.

When are children's auditions?

CHILDREN AUDITIONS

March 21 • 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

at the Hoogland Center for the Arts

Open to kids between 8-13 years of age

Children's auditions take place in two-hour sessions; casting will be for Ragtime and Matilda. During the first hour, Muni staff will teach auditionees a simple song and dance. Auditionees’ parents or guardians are welcome to observe this learning portion of the audition.

The second hour is a closed audition and only the Muni show staff are permitted to be present. During the audition, auditionees will perform the song and dance in front of show staff. Callback invitations are posted by auditionee number in the lobby shortly following each audition session.

Children's Audition Update (March 16, 2020)

We wanted to take a moment and express our gratitude to everyone who helped make our auditions a reality over the past two weeks. This includes the show staffs, the auditions committee, the volunteers, the staff at the Hoogland Center for the Arts and everyone who came out to audition.

While this is a trying time, it brings so much joy to us to see exactly the type of dedication and compassion that each of you brings to our organization.

 

As we have noted previously, Children's Auditions will be postponed. We will post on all our social media when the date is rescheduled.

 

Additionally, due to the ever-changing climate we are living in, we cast the adult roles last evening. This required a few long days for show staffs, but I can tell you they are thrilled to have their casts together and we will post those cast lists shortly.

 

Thank you all so much. We can't begin to tell you what your support means to us.
