Audition Process
In order to follow safety protocols, TBEY is limiting the number of actors/actresses in the studio at a time. All auditionees should come with one or two characters they would like to audition for. This will help ensure how to best maximize the short time frame that we have for these scenes. Groups will be selected, who will then have five to a maximum of ten minutes of independent work time before being called to the studio to perform the scene.

Scenes may be cut shorter due to time constraints by the directors. This is not a sign of the quality of the performance, but merely a way to ensure that everyone is seen. We ask that actors/actresses stay for the duration of the audition in order to fill in for missing characters within the scene. There will be a warmup at the beginning of the auditions, so that the auditionees are warmed up before their audition. This warmup will be quick so it is recommended that actors/actresses perform their own warm-ups before auditions. After warmups, a quick overview of the audition will take place, along with splitting kids into their groups. After that, groups will have independent time and then be called one at a time to audition for the directors.

We are looking forward to seeing our new cast and getting started with rehearsals! Remember the directors want to see everyone succeed, so come with an enthusiastic attitude, can do spirit, but also have fun!
