JUPITER, Fla. — Saturday kids ages 7 to 17 can audition for free to be in the Maltz Jupiter Theatre's productions of Oliver and/or Jersey Boys.
'First Step to Stardom' auditions will be held on Saturday, Aug. 27 at 9:30 a.m. Kids can register by clicking here.
The auditioning process is designed to be unintimidating for children. First, they will learn a simple dance and then a short song. Then they will be given their chance to audition on the actual stage.
"The first thing we do is just to introduce ourselves to the students. We play some warmup games, ensemble games, just to make them feel like a team. And then we just make sure that they are very comfortable with the lyrics, they understand the interpretation, the melody, and then the dance steps and we take it nice and slow," said Kim Cozort, Director of Education at Maltz Jupiter Theatre
Then kids will be called back a few weeks later to audition for the director.
