Main Street Youth Theatre is kicking off the 2018 show season with Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, with eight showtimes starting March 2. Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased at the MSYT website tickets page (http://msyt.org/tickets).

Originally presented as a television extravaganza, this famous fairy tale has been re-fashioned and set to music by two great masters of the musical. The characters are given greater depth plus a more human quality, and it is only through Cinderella’s innocent faith in a miracle that allows her wish to go to the ball to come true. Musical highlights include “In My Own Little Corner”, “A Lovely Night”, “Do I Love You Because You’re Beautiful?” and “Impossible.”

MSYT celebrated its 20th anniversary season in 2017 with the retrospective show This is Our Story, featuring a tribute to the late Judy Gallagher. The 2018 season will feature two shows in addition to Cinderella, with one in the summer and one in the late fall. Learn more at the http://msyt.org.

Pre-Audition Workshops

These pre-audition workshops will give young actors the opportunity to give mock vocal and dance auditions Cold reads will also be practiced if time permits. Actors will receive feedback from the production team to help them improve their audition. Feedback will range from proper audition techniques, to very specific vocal feedback depending on the level of the actor. Pre-audition workshops are a great way for any actor who is considering auditions to get a first run out of the way, so that nerves affect them less during the audition itself. These workshops are also the perfect way for young actors to learn about the audition process and familiarize themselves with other actors that they will be working with.

For questions email: msyt.wizard@gmail.com

Auditions

For auditions, please have prepared 16 bars (approximately 30 seconds) of music. Music does not need to be memorized but it helps. Music will be performed without accompaniment, but does not have to be from a Broadway show. We want to see actors show off their voices in whatever way that they find suitable. Music auditions will be followed by a small group dance auditions. Actors will be taught 16 bars of a dance and asked to perform it in groups of 5-10. We do not expect perfection on these dances but we do expect energy and effort.

For questions email: msyt.wizard@gmail.com

Callbacks

Any actor given a callback will be emailed a piece from the show to prepare. Actors will also be given sides from the script for cold reads in groups. Any actor at a callback is being considered for a lead role and expected to perform their song and cold reads in front of their peers. If you do not receive a callback, do not assume that you will not be cast. We are only calling back for a few roles.

Casting

The cast will be announced shortly following the callbacks. It will be posted on Facebook and on the website.
