Mainstage Audition Results

AUDITIONS COMPLETED

Auditions for the next shows will be in August 2017, as we audition for Season 66.  We encourage all our students to try out again and continue to take classes here at DJT or gain theatrical experience wherever they can!

IMPORTANT!!  PLEASE BE SURE TO READ ALL INFORMATION ON THIS PAGE.   PARENTS READ TOO. 

Our apologies on the delay.  Got caught up helping new families register at DJT.

First off, congrats to all who auditioned.  You are amazing, awesome and brave kids.  We are so lucky to get to know you and share with you in the arts.  We hope all of you will continue to take classes, camps and workshops alongside your Mainstage endeavors.  There is always more to learn!

After an over two hour casting process, we are excited to say that all who auditioned will be used in the productions as actors!!

Thanks again to all the students who auditioned!  We mean it here at DJT when we say you should all be very proud of your audition. You were all quite brave and we were really impressed with your talents.

Should you have any additional questions about the audition process, do not hesitate to e-mail our Artistic Director, Daniel Sheridan <hyperlink email>. He would be happy to answer any further questions.

Other Opportunities

DJT Programs kick off next week with Theatre.  Then Dance classes and camps the week after that!  Check it out!

Theatre Classes <hyperlink> - We’ve expanded our class offerings to continue to challenge all our students.  In particular, we’ve added an Intermediate and Advanced Acting course structure to be sure we challenge you as actors!  For those who may want to explore design and technical theatre, checkout our Costume Creation class too.

Dance Classes <hyperlink> - DJT Dance offers a wide variety of classes for kids of all ages and experience levels.  Many actors study tap, jazz, ballet, lyrical and hip-hop to improve their dance abilities for musicals and other production types.  Poise and confidence learned in dance can lead you to success as an actor.   

Performing Arts Camp (Ages 6-13) <hyperlink> - Adventure throughout DJT, exploring acting, improvisation, movement, lights, sound, make-up, and specialty classes. Students will collaborate on the creation of their very own script to perform! Camps are based around a special theme that allows students to experience something new every time. Camp ends with a performance for family and friends on Friday at 4:00pm. Join the adventure!
