Student Production Auditions

Woodlawn Academy presents four full-scale Student Productions per school calendar year. Each production is tailored for youth performers ages 5 - 18 (high school senior) and auditions are open to the public.

Admittance to student productions consists of an audition process and tuition fee of $400 ($375 when paid in full). Rehearsals vary upon production but typically are held once a week for ten weeks. The rehearsal process ends with a full-fledged production complete with all the theatrics you would expect from a Broadway show.

Footloose Teen & Mary Poppins Jr Auditions

Auditions for our Fall 2019 shows are Saturday, August 24 and Sunday, August 25. Schedules for both productions are pending and will be available soon

Footloose Teen show dates: October 30, November 2-3

Mary Poppins Jr show dates: December 5, 7, 8 and December 14, 15, 16

THE PROCESS
Auditions are held in groups, for an hour at a time, and are segregated by form of vocal accompaniment (piano or digital track). The duration of every vocal selection should be between 16 and 32 bars of music, or no more than one minute long. If your child's preference is to sing along with an audio track, sign up for a time slot reserved for such, and you will be given a selection of three songs to choose from. On the day of auditions, the Woodlawn APA will provide your selected track for you.

Students will ONLY have to prepare their vocal selection. For the dance audition our choreographers will prepare a short movement combination for the group for assessment.

CASTING
There will be only one cast for Footloose Teen, and two casts for Mary Poppins Jr. Casting will take roughly a week, and you will be emailed audition results at the earliest possible convenience. Please refrain from inquiring about audition results until one full week after the date. Casts are divided strictly by age. Students between the ages of 5-14 will be considered for Mary Poppins Jr. Students 13+ (as of opening night) will be considered for Footloose Teen.

A final calendar will be received at the mandatory Parent Orientation on the first day of rehearsal. Dates above are subject to change based on need.

ATTENDANCE IS KEY: The Woodlawn Academy takes pride in the high production value of our youth shows, and they receive equal priority to our mainstage productions. The productions are challenging material, and take a moderate to high level of commitment. Attendance to every rehearsal is crucial. Substantial absences or conflicts will result in recasting. More information on recasting and attendance will be available at Parent Orientation.
