Participants in Little Starz are not required to audition. Parents interested in having their child participate in Little Starz should watch this site for information about sign up and first rehearsal dates.
Auditions for CenterStage, UpStage and MainStage will consist of an audition that will last 5 to 7 minutes. You will be expected to have prepared 16 bars (measures) of a song to sing. You will be asked to do a cold read from a script...usually a short scene read opposite a member of the MCCA staff. You may be asked to do some simple dance steps that will be shown to you by MCCA staff.
DON'T BE SCARED OF THE AUDITION!
Auditions can be scary...let's face it: someone is judging us. But MCCA auditions are part of the learning process. In your audition, we can access your experience level. We can access your strengths, and determine the type of role for which you are best suited. Over time, as you gain experience, you will learn more about how to prepare for an audition, how to best present yourself and showcase your strengths. We want you to be successful...and we are here to help make it happen!
For more information about audition dates, times, etc. see the Audition Information page.
