Callbacks: Callbacks will be by invitation ONLY. You will receive an email inviting you to callbacks with preparation materials. We will communicate with you through the email that is listed on your audition form. Callbacks will take place at Greene Memorial United Methodist Church in downtown Roanoke.

If you do not receive a callback, this does NOT mean you have not been cast. This simply means that we have seen everything we need to at this time. We will be in touch regarding casting within 3 weeks.

NOTE TO PARENTS:

We would love to cast every youth who auditions for us but unfortunately we cannot cast everyone who auditions. At many of our auditions, we have had over 100 auditioners! Casting decisions are based on many different aspects including (but not limited to)- cast size, specific show needs, age, height, actor type, dance/ vocal/ acting ability, maturity and ability to work well with others as a team. If they don't get casted this time, please encourage them to audition again! Many times, their 2nd or 3rd audition lands them a part because they are much more comfortable with the audition process. When preparing your youth for auditions, the most important thing to do is practice! The more prepared they are, the less nervous they are likely to feel. Also encourage your student to sign up for one of our classes. Participating in our education programs allows us to get to know your child and help them strengthen their abilities so that they might perform more confidently at their next audition. Break a leg!
