What is Required? 
We suggest that your child partake in our Broadway Bootcamp program to receive an even more in depth answer to this! We will hold auditions in singing, dancing, and acting:

  • Our dance will be taught by one of our theatre professionals, where children will be taught a short dance combination and then asked to perform it.
  • For acting, a student is welcome to bring a 1 minute monologue, or ask for a cold read the day of the audition.  To be considered for the Academy, we ask potential students to be prepared to perform a 1 minute monologue.
  • For music and song, we ask students to bring appropriate and clearly marked sheet music.  Auditioners will then sing with our musical director who will accompany each student on piano.  If sheet music is unavailable, we will allow for a student to audition acapella (no accompanist, singing on their own).  No more than 32 bars in length.  No CDs or karaoke tracks will be accommodated.

What Should My Student Wear?
We ask that students wear comfortable, breathable, and easy to move in clothing (leggings and short sleeve shirts for example), with either dance shoes (jazz or ballet) or tennis shoes. For anyone with hair past their ears, please have them wear a headband or tie their hair back to keep it tame and out of their face during auditions.

    I Want to Prep More Before, How Can I?
    We will be offering private lessons all year long!  Our talented staff can assist in acting, dance, and audition technique to help strengthen confidence, poise, and performance.  Lessons can be arranged for either 30 minutes or 1 hour. 

    For more information or to register for private lessons, contact Arts Education Manager, Adrienne Bergeron, 410.500.5938, abergeron@jcc.org.

    Academy Theatre Program Auditions

    Auditions are required for this new program designed for the pre-professional student who wants to refine their work in every element of musical theatre.  Students will have access to extensive musical theatre training and master class intensive opportunities, audition technique seminars, and the chance to master the performance experience. 

    For the Academy audition, please prepare:

    • 16-32 bars of an audition song.  A pianist will be provided for the audition.
    • 1-2 minute monologue.  Please also be prepared to cold read a scene provided the day of by the director.
    • Be prepared to learn a short dance audition to then be executed and performed for the artistic team.

    My child wants to do this but feels like they need more help to prepare!
    Never fear!  Our director, Ms. Adrienne, will be holding a pop up Audition Master Class on Sunday, October 24 from 1:30-4:30pm.

    Will everyone who auditions for the Academy be admitted?  
    The JCC  is committed to inclusion. We recognize that this is a rigorous program. We want everyone to strive to be a part of the Academy program, and we want to set our students up for success, which may mean waiting another season to be  admitted.  If we deem that a student is not ready to take on the expansive and more intensive nature of ATP, luckily, we have so many other training programs offered through our theatre and dance sectors!  We will give every child plenty of opportunity to strengthen their skills before auditioning again next season.

    You can also sign your child up for private lessons right now! 
    If your child is looking for a little more one-on-one attention, our talented staff can assist in acting, dance, and audition technique.  Whether it is a role they have been cast through CTPC or they need some extra attention for their upcoming audition, these individualized lessons are to help strengthen the students confidence, poise, and performance in any realm for the theatre.  Lessons can be arranged for either 30 minutes or 1 hour.  

    For more information or to register for private lessons, contact Arts Education Manager, Adrienne Bergeron, 410.500.5938, abergeron@jcc.org.

    PLEASE NOTE FOR BOTH PROGRAMS:

    No prior experience is necessary to be a part of any theatre programs.  Additional production fees may apply.  Students who are admitted to the Academy are welcome to also participate in CTPC.  Students who are admitted to CTPC (not CTPC Jr. due to age requirements) will be eligible to audition for the Academy next fall.  

    INCLUSION FOR ALL

    The JCC is dedicated to ensuring that people of all abilities are welcome and included in everything that we have to offer. Please let us know if you or your loved one needs accommodations to take part in any of our programs or events, and we will do our best to make it happen. Please contact Helene Rapaport, inclusion@jcc.org.
