And just when all hope seems lost, a most unexpected hero rises up and takes center stage. The power of optimism really can save the world!

AUDITIONS - Monday, April 24th from 3:30-8:30pm

  • K-2nd graders held from 3:30-4:45pm

  • 3rd-5th graders held from 5-6:20pm

  • 6th-8th graders held from 6-7:20pm

Participants will attend a 1 hr and 20 minute audition time slot. All actors will have a chance to sing, do some acting, and learn a short and fun dance combination. We will play a few theatre games, too!


PREPARING FOR YOUR AUDITION

We want you to have fun! Please prepare:

  • An introduction: Tell us your name, age, and what you’ll be performing today!

  • A poem or monologue (1 minute or less): We prefer this to be a memorized piece. We encourage you to make vocal and physical choices to show off a character. Spongebob is a comedy with lots of larger-than-life characters, so your acting selection should reflect this style of theatre.

  • A vocal audition: 30 seconds of you singing to an instrumental karaoke track, preferably a song from a musical other than Spongebob. Pick something that shows off your voice and lets you get into character. You’re welcome to make up dance moves and make acting choices while you sing.


CALLBACKS - Saturday, May 6th from 10am-3pm

After auditions, we may need to see a few actors again. In that case, actors should plan to attend Spongebob callbacks. Callbacks are a fun opportunity to meet your fellow cast members, work with your director, and take a stab at acting scenes from the show. Callbacks will start with theatre warm-ups and games. Students will learn simple choreography from the show. Students interested in speaking and solo roles will also have the opportunity to sing music from Spongebob and read sides (short scenes) from the script. Music and sides will be provided before callbacks so students can prepare.


CAMP ROTATIONS

Rehearsal, acting class, choreography, vocal rehearsals, costumes, props, hair, makeup, and age-specific workshops exploring the themes of the show.


CASTING THE SHOW

We want to see what each actor brings to the table! Our team of directors and designers will use your auditions to craft the world of Spongebob: Youth Edition with the goal of offering a fun and challenging program specifically for the group of students who sign up.


PERFORMANCES

We will perform Spongebob: Youth Edition four times! Family members will be able to purchase tickets to the show. We will also have the chance to perform an “Access Preview” for a neurodiverse audience during our Thursday preview.
