Auditions for Jr. Rising Stars
Our award-winning Jr. Rising Stars are thrilled to announce auditions for the Spring musical, Seussical, Jr! This delightful musical features Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat, and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters who spring to life onstage in a fantastical musical extravaganza! Auditions will be held:
Sunday, February 4: 12:00PM – 5:00PM
Monday, February 5: 4:30PM – 6:00PM
Callbacks will begin Monday, February 5 at 6:00PM. Please have the children prepare ONE verse of “Alone In The Universe”. Please start at 1:06 and end at 2:05.
Jr. Rising Stars is open to children ages 7 to 11 (up to 6th grade, so may include children who have recently turned 12). Please note that your children may simply come to the Y and sign up. The first audition is in and out, though it depends on the numbers that arrive at the same time.

Auditions for Rising Stars Ages 12-18
If you are interested in the roles of Rosabud or Drood or Helena, ladies, please sing “Perfect Strangers”. If you are interested in Princess Puffer, “Off to the Races” is fine. Men, sing “Off to the Races”. Put your best British Accent on! I know we have miles to go before we master this, but we will! One verse is sufficient. I may bring you in in small groups!

- FINAL CALLBACKS WILL BE SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 4 from 3:30-6:30PM
