The post-audition process

Some children will be recalled on Sunday 3 February to assist the creative team to finalise the casting of the show. If your child is not recalled, this does not necessarily mean they have been unsuccessful.

All auditionees will receive an email by Thursday 7 February at the latest to advise whether they have been successful in being cast in Disney’s High School Musical Jr.

the audition process

All children participate in the audition process in age level groups. The session lasts for one and a half hours which is divided into the three disciplines: dancing, singing and acting.

Previous CMTS cast members are automatically eligible to be involved in the show. All roles are open to all auditionees.

The Choreographer will teach the children an 8 bar routine. Please bring soft shoes/jazz shoes suitable for dancing in. Or bare feet are fine!

The Musical Director will hear each child sing one verse and a chorus of their chosen song. The children can bring a backing track (must be without recorded vocals) / piano music or sing unaccompanied.

The Director will hear the children read. All the children will be sent readings from the show prior to their audition. These readings should be familiarised but do not need to be memorised.
