Full-scale musical theater productions take place bi-annually in the spring and summer. With the guidance of a full creative and technical team, students will go through the entire production process--from audition to opening night. Throughout the production process, students will have the fundamentals of musical theater performance reinforced through real-life application of acting, dance, and voice performance. In addition to having access to the creative and technical resources of a professional production company, all YAS productions are accompanied live by the PMT Band.
Auditions for our upcoming production of Aristocats Kids will take place on March 3, 2018, at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church. For the audition, students should prepare a minute-long cut from a musical theater or pop music song. Please bring sheet music in the correct key. An accompanist will be provided. At the end of each audition slot, students will be taught a brief dance combination. Please come dressed to move. All students audition for roles within the production, not for entrance into the production--all students will be cast in Aristocats.
