Upcoming Auditions

Next to Normal – Shadow Cast

We are looking to cast six dedicated, serious music theater students to understudy the six roles in our professional alumni production of Next to Normal by Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt (directed by Susannah Martin and David Möschler).

Understudies will be required to be at most of the main cast’s rehearsals and then will have their own rehearsals to work on the material they’ve been watching. There will be an invited dress rehearsal for the “shadow cast” on the set at the El Cerrito High Theater in between performance weekends.

Rehearsals begin March 26th, 2018 and the show runs May 3-13th.

Auditions are open to students 9th grade through college.

Preliminary auditions will be held by appointment only on Saturday, December 9, between 12 and 5pm at YMTC’s rehearsal space located at 2945 Bolivar Drive, Berkeley CA, 94710.

Callbacks will be on Monday, December 11 from 6-10pm.

  • Please prepare 32 bars of a musical theater song of your choice, and bring sheet music in the correct key for you; an accompanist will be provided.
  • Print out, complete and bring a completed audition form (coming soon) to your audition, along with a headshot and resume if you have them.
  • You will also need to sign up for an audition time (coming soon).
