Spring 2019 Theater Cast Member Application

Cast Members and Parents,
One of the most beneficial, educational and enjoyable aspects of participating in theater or any art is watching and learning from other's who perform or display their art in public.  
Please attend local arts events as a family!
Engaging with local art enriches our community. 

Spring 2020 Cast Member Application is below the following important information.

 

Thank you for your interest in Pittsboro Youth Theater (PYT)! We are thrilled to have the opportunity to share theater arts with people of all ages in and around Chatham county NC. Auditions and rehearsals of our 5 Spring 2020 season play casts start the week of January 13, 2020.

 

Auditions are used in every PYT play cast to determine which role(s) each actor will rehearse and perform. This season auditions for all plays will be held during the first rehearsal(s) for each play. This season, to help assure that the more experienced members of the Tinker Bell cast are able to put on the best performance possible, Tinker Bell auditions will take on the added significance of determining acceptance into the Tinker Bell cast. See the Tinker Bell description below for more audition information. Those who cannot attend initial rehearsal auditions must request Tammy Matthews, Artistic Director, conduct a special audition by appointment; Contact page.

In Spring 2019 Pittsboro Youth Theater (PYT) is celebrating our 8th year in operation! Having performed in every existing space that was marginally appropriate for live theater, PYT opened our own Sweet Bee Theater and Center For The Arts, Pittsboro in January 2017. Sweet Bee Theater is the only public theater in Chatham county!!! PYT is proud to provide professional level performance arts training and local entertainment to area residents. 

 

As with any team activity, PYT plays demand cast member effort and commitment. Cast members and their families should be prepared to have great fun and be active participants in a successful team. PYT has built a legacy of exceptional-quality live theater performances and a loyal fan/Supporter base. For more information about the impact PYT has on the lives of our cast members, please see the "Mission" page under the "About" tab on this website.

Local young people can join casts of 4 separate plays in Spring 2019Review NEW payment information, plays and schedules below.

Every cast member must complete an online application; hard copies of applications will not be accepted. Complete the Cast Member Application at the bottom of this page. Note that the first monthly cast fee must be paid when the application is submitted.

 

Some plays require a successful audition before inclusion in cast. If an applicant is not selected for a cast that requires an audition, that applicant's payment may be applied to first monthly fee of another Spring 2019 play and/or be refunded to keep accounts in balance.

 

A late charge of $20 per month will be due for all payments received more than 5 days after due date - no exceptions.
