Bay View Youth Theatre is back in 2023 with NEWSIES JR! Registration day will be June 26, 2023, which will include a parent meeting and a Getting-to-Know-You rehearsal. The non-member registration fee is $120 and the member fee is $105. We accept cash, check, or credit card. The registration fee must be paid before the participant can attend rehearsal. All children ages 7-14 are welcome to join our cast. The last day to register is July 7.
If you would like to hear the music or read the script, please follow this link. The script is under the banner, “Read the Libretto for Free.” Under “Audition Central” you can find the list of characters as well as the materials for auditions. If the auditionee would like a specific role, please sing one minute of that character’s song from the show and read the selected material from the script. Please memorize the song. The script material does not need to be memorized. If they would just like to be in the ensemble, they can sing any song that they like and tell a joke.
Here are the three things I am looking for:
- The ability to speak loudly and clearly
- An understanding of the story
- Expression of emotion in the body and in the voice. Show me the character and what they are thinking and feeling!
For the first time, we will be accepting video auditions for those who will not be able to attend on audition day starting June 14. All videos and registration forms must be submitted before June 28. Please upload the audition as a private YouTube link emailed to email@example.com. The cast list will be posted Thursday, June 29th at Voorhies Hall. To be considered for a speaking role, participants who submitted a video audition must be in attendance at rehearsal starting July 5. Ensemble roles do not have to submit video auditions.
