Please read the entire page and make sure you understand everything before signing up.
Auditions will be held at Freedom Life Church - 13A Kitties Landing Road in Bluffton.
June 18th and 19th from 9am - 5pm. Audition slots are in periods of twenty minutes.
Please insure that you will be on time to your audition. Failure to arrive on time may result in your child being unable to audition. On time means that you are ready to begin the audition process at the moment you arrive. Paperwork cannot be finished once your audition time has started.
Sign up by clicking the button below. Once brought to the form, enter your child's name and your main email for contact. (If there is no email, your child's name will be removed from the sign up sheet.)
*If for any reason your child is unable to audition, please remove their name from the audition list. We usually have youth on the waiting list eager to fill your spot, so please give them a chance rather than not showing up to your scheduled audition.*
The cost of the full summer camp is $400 per child. There is a discount for multiple children ($360 for the 2nd and $320 for 3rd or more). There is also a $25 registration fee per family that will last throughout every show in 2021. Lastly, there is a $25 costume rental fee per child. This will not be deposited unless costumes are not returned in good condition after the show.
*If your child is unable to participate in the program and the cast list has been given out, there will be NO REFUNDS.*
What to Bring:
In order to audition, the following forms must be completed and brought to auditions: Registration Form, Size Chart, Photo Release Form, and Parent and Child Contracts. You must pay the registration fee and tuition at auditions as well as a separate check for the costume deposit. Please note that a $25 costume deposit is needed for every child auditioning. Failure to bring these items to auditions may result in your child being unable to audition.
What to Prepare:
Each child must memorize a short monologue. This can be from Aladdin, but it is not necessary. They must also prepare a song to sing acapella, about a minute in length. We recommend that they sing a song from the show, but it is not required. However, be sure to choose a song that will best showcase your child's vocal range.
Before coming to auditions, please read the BYT Handbook linked below.
All families will be held accountable for all information in the handbook and must agree to all terms.

Bluffton Youth Theatre, since it's beginning in 2015, has worked hard to be more than just a theatre company. At BYT, we focus on building each cast and crew member's skills as well as teach everyone to encourage and support one another. Because we want each child to grow, we give everyone who auditions a part in our musical that will challenge them.
In addition, we endeavor to fulfill our main goal of being a totally inclusive theatre. We believe that every child can shine in the performing arts regardless of their physical or mental challenges.
