Audition for The Children’s Theatre

If you’ve got a hankering for the stage, or maybe your little one is showing signs of promise, now is the time to audition for The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati (TCT).  Make an appointment to audition for the second half of their season, including The Wizard of Oz and Tarzan the Stage Musical, along with the touring productions for TCT on Tour.

Auditions are by appointment only.  You only need one audition appointment even if you are interested in both productions.

Children ages 9-17 and adults 18+ may make an audition appointment.  Appointments can be made for:

  • Monday, August 15, 2016 between 5:30 PM and 8:30 PM
  • Tuesday, August 16, 2016 between 5:30 PM and 8:30 PM
  • Wednesday, August 17, 2016 between 5:30 PM and 8:30 PM
  • Thursday, August 18, 2016 between 5:30 PM and 8:30 PM

You MAY be asked to return and attend a “movement callback” on the day of your audition, which will take place from 8:30 PM to 9:30 PM.

The Wizard of Oz callbacks will take place on Saturday, August 20, from 1 PM to 5:30 PM.

Tarzan The Stage Musical Based on the Disney Film callbacks will take place on Sunday August 21, from 6 PM to 10:30 PM.

Auditions and Callbacks are held at TCT offices located at:  4015 Red Bank Road, Cincinnati OH 45227.

Please bring a memorized song that best shows your vocal range. (1 minute max).  Remember your piano sheet music for your song as TCT will not be auditioning your a cappella skills.  An accompanist will be provided. Your sheet music must have the piano part, not just the vocal line, and music should be in a 3-ring binder with the cut clearly marked for the accompanist.

You do not need to prepare a monologue.

You may be asked to show your dance ability, so please come prepared.  Wear appropriate shoes.  No flip flops.

Please bring a recent 8×10 headshot and updated performance resume.

Please plan to arrive at least 10-15 minutes ahead of your appointment to check/correct previously submitted paperwork.

Due to concentrated rehearsal periods, TCT asks that you do not have conflicts during rehearsals. In an effort to best facilitate all rehearsal times, all those auditioning will be asked to list all conflicts at the time of the audition. This season, all conflicts will result in a stipend adjustment. Please take note of when rehearsals begin, the day and evening tech and performance schedule, and bring your calendar with you to the audition.

Auditions are by appointment only. Visit to schedule your audition time.
