For the first time in forever, a chill is coming to Bluffton

Please read ALL the information on this page before signing up for auditions.

Auditions

Where?

5848 Guilford Place - located in Stock Farm (downtown Bluffton)

When?

 September 14th from  9am - 5pm. Auditions slots are given in times of ten minutes.

*You must arrive 15 minutes before your audition time to go over paperwork. Failure to arrive in time may result in your child being unable to audition.*

How?

Sign up by clicking the sign up button below. Once taken to the spreadsheet, fill out the child's name and your main email for contact (If there is no email for contact, your child's name will be removed from the audition sign up).

*Please remove your child's name if they will be unable to attend auditions. We have eager children on our waiting list, so please give them a chance rather than not showing up to your scheduled audition.*

Cost

The cost of the full fall program is $350 per child. There is a discount for multiple children ($315 for the 2nd and $280 for 3rd or more).  There is also a $25 registration fee (per family) for those who have not performed in a BYT show in the 2019 year. Lastly, there is a $25 costume rental fee. 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 to Auditions

In order to audition, the following forms must be completed and brought to auditions: Registration Form, Size Chart, Photo Release Form, Availability, and Parent and Child Contracts. You must also bring the tuition check as well as the costume deposit as a separate check. Failure to bring these items to auditions may result in your child being unable to audition. 

What to Audition With

Each child must memorize a short monologue. This can be from Frozen, but it is not necessary. They must also prepare a song to sing a capella, 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. 

One parent/guardian from each family must sign up for the mandatory parent meetings using the link below. There are two date options for each. Choose one date for Parent Meeting #1 and one date for Parent Meeting #2. 

On September 9th, you will receive an email if you have neglected to sign up for the mandatory parent meetings.  If the parent/guardian is still not signed up by September 13th, their child's name will be removed from the audition sign up. 

*Failure to attend a parent meeting will result in your child not being cast*

Other Preparation

Have your child come prepared to take a headshot at auditions. This means they may not wear any shirt with logos (except for a BYT logo).

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.
