The Audition Process
Auditioners should arrive promptly at 3PM and plan to stay for the entirety of the audition.
We will work with the group of auditioners on writing, singing, acting, and dancing.
Please prepare a 1-2 minute song. It can be any genre. Please find an instrumental to sing with on YouTube.
Wear clothes that are comfortable to dance in.
We will give you a scene to work on at the audition - you do not need to prepare a monologue.

Q: How often do ATC auditions happen?

Q: What happens if you ask me to join ATC?
A: If you are accepted, you will start your journey with ATC by participating in our Summer Intensive from June 20 - July 16, 2022. This is the opportunity for all new members to become acclimated to ATC expectations and for the company to build an ensemble for the upcoming year. Upon successful completion of this experience, you will be invited to continue with ATC. Before the Summer Intensive, you and your parent(s) will meet ATC staff and learn about our expectations to set you up for success.
Q: What if I am not comfortable singing/dancing/acting?
A: That’s okay! We realize that some people are stronger in one area of performance more than another. You don’t have to be strong in every area of performance, but you must show a willingness to try. That means having a positive attitude and doing your best in every part of the audition. ATC exists to help young performers at all different levels grow in their talent.
