Welcome! We are so excited you have decided to audition for the show!
Auditions will be held on Friday, January 11th. Callbacks will be held on the 12th. Time slots will be opened up for as many as wish to audition. Both will be held at Wildwood United Methodist Church, 8911 Farm to Market Rd 1488, Magnolia, TX 77354.
To begin the audition sign-up process, please gather all the following information and have your actor hanging out close by. Our current sign-up process does not give you the ability to save and come back later to finish the form. In order to complete this process you will need the following:
- Dates and roles of any performing and/or training experience
- Dates and reasons for ALL rehearsal or show conflicts (Rehearsals – Friday nights & Saturdays, 1/18 to 3/23 (no rehearsal 3/15 & 3/16 for Spring Break. There will be rehearsal on 3/8 & 3/9, if you are called) ; Tech Week 3/25-3/28; Performances: (2 weekends) 3/29 to 3/31 and 4/6 to 4/7. Please see the Conflict/Unexcused Absence Policy below.
- Your cast member so they can sign the agreements along with you
- A credit card to pay the $225 production fee, non-refundable unless your child is not cast in the show
**Once you have completed the steps below, you will be emailed the link to signup for your audition.** Please be sure to complete ALL steps AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. While we will open as many audition times as necessary for all who wish to try out, the prime slots will be taken quickly. We ask that you do not share the audition link with anyone else. Thank you!

CONFLICT/UNEXCUSED ABSENCE POLICY: Those absences not listed on the audition form are considered unexcused. Note: unexcused absences could result in a cast member being cut from a scene. Unexcused absences once the run-through process, dress rehearsals, or shows have begun WILL make an actor eligible ONLY for an ensemble role in the next NYT show for which they audition. Exceptions, on a case-by-case basis, are made for illness and emergency.
