  • Everyone MUST attend one Vocal Audition AND one Dance Audition

  • Vocal Auditions:
    • We encourage older kids to prepare 16-32 bars of a musical theatre song.  Please provide your own sheet music ( is a good resource for sheet music).  An accompanist will be provided.  You may also audition to your own recorded music if there are no lyrics on the recording.
    • If this is your first time auditioning, or if you are a younger student, we just want to hear you sing!  You are also welcome to bring your own music but if you don’t know any musical theatre songs – just come as you are!  We’ll provide an easy song (like “Happy Birthday”) for you to sing.
    • If you are interested in auditioning for a main character role you will be asked to do a “cold reading” during your vocal audition.  You will be given a script to read from, there is no need to prepare anything.
  • Dance Audition:
    • Please come prepared to dance/move.  You will learn a dance combination at the audition and perform it for the director and the choreographer.  No advance preparation is necessary – just do your best and smile!
  • Callbacks, if necessary, are by invitation only on Monday, May 16 at the Coralville Center for Performing Arts.
  • Please bring completed Audition Form to your audition (link to form is below).
  • Rehearsals will be Monday-Friday from 6:00-9:00 at the Hillel House in Iowa City starting on May 23.
  • If cast, Young Footliters Youth Theatre does have a $30 annual per family membership fee and a $75 participation fee for this production to help cover costs (such as costumes, sets, props, painting, royalty rights, performance and rehearsal facilities).  Thank you for your understanding and support.  We understand that participation fees may make it difficult for your child to be involved in a show.  Please let us help.  Scholarships are available through the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts for families with financial need.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like a scholarship form.
