Auditions are not meant to be a scary thing. It is an opportunity for performers to show the Creative Team what they can do so that they are cast in the most appropriate role. All students who audition will be in the show – just not necessarily for the character they audition for.
Many factors are considered when casting, including simple things like height, singing voices and singing, acting and dancing ability.
Call Backs are for the Creative Team to further see students in a particular role before casting the show. Aladdin Jr Call Backs will be on Tuesday, February 16 from 8.30am with the cast announced at the first rehearsal on Wednesday, February 17.
