How to get cast
in an HTC Production!
Do I need to prepare for the audition?
There is no need to prepare anything before auditions, as everything you will need to know will be explained at the Audition Camp!
If I am cast, what is the time commitment like?
If you’re wondering whether you have the time to become involved in HTC, you may peruse the Spring Musical Production Calendar on the Calendar page of this website so that you are clear about the extensive time commitment for the production.
Sign up to join the Google Calendar or print out a copy of the Calendar for your easy reference and coordinate your other important calendars to see if our schedule will have any conflicts with yours. (It is recommended you use the WEEK view to see the full impact of the schedule.) Also, see Calendar Quick Reference Guide to the left for an overview of scheduling information.
Students who have very few conflicts with the rehearsal schedule are more likely to be cast than those who have many other commitments.
Being in an HTC show sounds so awesome! How do I sign up to attend Audition Camp?
HTC Spring Musical Audition activities traditionally occur the first Friday and Saturday after school resumes from Christmas Vacation. Auditionees are invited to attend our Alumni Variety Show on Friday night, January 11 at 8:00 p.m. in Hannon Theatre. The next day, Saturday, January 12, auditionees will need to attend our Audition Camp run by the Alumni who performed the night before.
To get seats for the Alumni Variety Show, you will need to go to our box office and reserve your free tickets. You can do that here:
Audition Camp begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 7:00 p.m. Auditionees are required to attend the whole day. Lunch and dinner will be provided! To sign up to attend Audition Camp, use the online registration site "Sign-up Genius" to let us know you'll be coming!
The morning's activities include a round robin of four classes led by the alumni. These classes prepare the auditionees for the four components of the afternoon audition process: Dance, Singing, Acting, and Improvisation. At the end of the four classes, there will be a special mock audition hour where all groups will meet with alumni and go through all aspects of the audition to show how the audition will go in the afternoon.
Also required, parents must complete one type of our parent orientation presentations. A parent will either need to attend the Mandatory Parent meeting on Saturday at at 6:30 p.m. (before pick-up) OR complete the following option. If parents are not able to attend the meeting, they can complete the HTC Parent Orientation Presentation online. This mini-course will take about an hour to read and complete the few questions at the end of each segment. This is about equivalent to the time the actual Parent Meeting would last.
Auditionees should be sure to discuss their interest to participate in Audition Camp with their parents, and be sure one of their parents is able to attend the mandatory Parent Meeting during Audition Camp at 6:30 p.m or complete the Parent Orientation Presentation ON TIME (by 7:00 pm on January 12.)
Students whose parents do not attend the Meeting or do not complete the Orientation Presentation will be ineligible for casting. The meeting or orientation is mandatory for all parents of prospective company members, even if the company member has been in seven prior productions.
Step #3 - Fill Out the Necessary Forms
The forms below must be completed in their entirety and submitted online. It would help the process for auditionees to submit them before auditions, but computers will be available for anyone who needs one to complete their forms before auditioning in Room M6. If an auditionee is unable to fill out the forms, he/she should plan on arriving to auditions at 7:30 a.m.
The final required form, the Consent to Treatment form, will be filled out by a parent in person when he/she attends the mandatory Parent Meeting as listed above. (Auditionees should be sure to have their parents bring insurance information in order to fill it out at the meeting.) OR Parents will need to fill out the form at home and have their student bring it with them to the audition should they decide to complete the Online Parent Orientation Program.
Without a signed Consent to Treatment form, no one is allowed to be in the theatre or rehearsal hall when rehearsals begin.
