What COVID-19 protocols are in place?
As of July 2021, all auditions, rehearsals, and performances will be held in person. A COVID vaccination card showing proof of COVID-19 vaccination will be required for all performers (must have both vaccines by auditions).
For youth productions there are additional COVID protocols in place. Auditions, rehearsals, and performances are currently expecting all participants to wear a mask at all times. Full YPT-COVID protocols can be seen here.
What Do I Need In Order To Audition?
Please be prepared to sing a short portion of a song. Bring piano sheet music for a song you have already learned.
- Do not use a song from the show.
- Do not sing to taped music or sing a cappella.
You do not have to sing an entire song. We only want to get an idea of how well you can carry a tune and follow accompaniment. Sixteen to 32 measures should be sufficient. If you are "called back" for a principal role on callback night, we will ask you to sing some more.
If you do not have a song, we still encourage you to come, and we will have a few selections available for you such as "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music; "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" from The Wizard of Oz, "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" from Song of the South.
You will need to fill out an audition form. This can be done in advance or at the the theater on the day of auditions. (If filling out at the theater, please come an additional 10 minutes early to allow time to fill out the form - including potential rehearsal conflicts).

DMTC expects a robust turnout for auditions but we've also learned to prepare for the unexpected. If circumstances warrant right-sizing this production to match availability of participants, the producer and director may instead choose to cast and produce "Pinocchio." In that event, all other information (i.e. dates, times, etc.) will remain the same.
