Welcome to Los Gatos Youth Theatre's 2019 Production of The Wizard of Oz! Please complete the audition form below. You are also required to print and complete the Paper Packet from the LGYT website and bring it with you to auditions (you will not be able to audition without the completed paper packet). You must also register through Los Gatos Saratoga Recreation Dept (www.lgsrecreation.org).
Audition Dates and Times are detailed on the LGYT website!
Vocals - Prepare a song of your choice for a 1 - 1 1/2 minute audition. Please bring the instrumentals only on an MP3 player (phone) or CD.
Dance - Be prepared to move. You will be taught a simple movement combination. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes.
Acting - You will be given lines at the audition.
Headshot photo - Bring a recent photo of yourself to leave with artistic staff.
Rehearsals begin the week of April 29th
Monday - Friday late afternoon/early evening (while school is in session rehearsal will end at 7pm on school nights)
Saturdays from 9am - 3:00pm
No one will be required to attend every rehearsal. A detailed rehearsal schedule will be posted online as soon as possible.
There will be very important rehearsals happening the final 2 weeks before performances, from approx. June 26th onward. But July 4th falls at the end of one of those weeks, so we’re trying to be flexible for folks’ holiday plans. Rehearsal scheduling depends on how well the show is coming along, and that depends on how the cast members’ attendance and focus is during May and early June! We will for sure have Thurs. July 4th off, but we’ll very likely have important rehearsals on Sundays June 30 & July 7, as well as July 5 & 6.
July 8-10 all Rehearsals are Mandatory and will likely include daytime as well as evening rehearsals times.
Performances (dates/times subject to minor changes):
Thursday, July 11th 7pm
Friday, July 12th 1pm & 7pm
Saturday, July 13th 1pm & 7pm
Sunday, July 14th 1pm
Each family is expected to provide at least 20 volunteer hours to the production, 2 of which will be at strike. We require a $295 deposit check, which ensures that each family fulfills their volunteer requirements. This check will be held until the end of the production and only cashed if you do not fulfill your volunteer requirement.
