We’re seeking performers ages 10+ for 92Y Musical Theater’s production of Legally Blonde Jr. & Disney’s High School Musical Jr.! Students may choose to participate in one or both productions.
This audition workshop will walk each performer through the audition process from start to finish—filling out audition forms, singing auditions, dancing auditions and cold reads, all with feedback. It is a wonderful experience for performers of all level of experience.
Actors interested in principal roles are strongly advised to attend the auditions. Performers who are not interested in a principal role are not required to audition, and all performers who register for the class will receive an ensemble part.
Selected students—based on their audition—may be eligible for a merit-based scholarship. There is no fee to attend the audition workshop, but registration is required.

At the workshop, students will be taught and then asked to sing a short cut from the song “Breaking Free or So Much Better” Those who don’t wish to be considered for a solo part may audition as a group. Performers interested in a featured dancing role will not need to sing at their audition (and will learn the song as an experience).
Performers will be given a short scene to read. Coaches will work with each child to ensure everyone gives their best performance.
Students will be taught a short dance routine which they will perform in groups. Performers who identify as high-level dancers should bring jazz and tap shoes; all other dancers may wear sneakers. All students should be dressed in comfortable clothes they can move in.
What to bring
- Recent photo (a snapshot or school photo is fine)
- Your resume or list of training/experience. If you don’t have a resume, that’s okay! You will fill out a brief audition form when you arrive
The program is open to performers who are 10+ years of age.
No prior training or experience is required; new-comers are welcome! Everyone will be selected and will receive a part in our show. Students who are only interested in a lead part should not register for the program until auditions have taken place.
