Tarzan Information and Audition Preparation Sessions


Getting ready to audition for Tarzan? A successful audition involves so much more than ability or talent.  Preparation is key to shining in an audition! Mastering the art of auditioning is something to be continually worked on and developed over time. One is never done learning in this area and you can never get too much practice. Self confidence grows with time and experience.

We have designed an overview session, All About Tarzan, to help everyone get ready for Tarzan auditions, from those auditioning to their parents helping them prepare.  All About Tarzan will speak to the specifics of YPT’s Tarzan production enabling auditioners to prepare for YPT’s Tarzan audition process.

Listen as the Director describes her vision for the show and the casting opportunities within her vision for the show.  The Music Director will introduce you to the music of the show!  Our Choreographer will highlight the amazing dance and movement opportunities in this production of Tarzan.  All Directors will describe the audition requirements for the show and what they hope to see and cast through auditions.  Learn what information and paperwork is important as you prepare so that you can have everything in order. For parents who are getting auditioners ready to go, learn how you can support them so that they walk in the door with confidence.

The last segment of the session will be for those interested in learning more about auditioning and picking a song.  With the guidance and expertise of our professional team trained specifically in musical theater, auditioners will learn how to present themselves in an audition. Explore how to choose a song to highlight your vocal qualities and range and how to select the appropriate cut for the audition. In addition, how to prepare your sheet music specifically for the audition pianist.

Having ability and talent is one thing. Putting it out there in an audition for directors to see is entirely another thing! Explore the art of presentation and risk taking! Learn how to give your best audition in acting, dancing and singing.
