Do you want to be on the TADA! stage?

Open auditions for the Resident Youth Ensemble of TADA (that’s RYET, pronounced “right”) ARE NOW CLOSED, but you can add your email to our list so you receive all the updates moving forward! Email Ashley Knowles, Associate Director of RYET Program, at [email protected] to join the list!

WHERE: TADA! Youth Theater, on 28th Street between 5th and Broadway in midtown, New York City.

WEAR: Auditionees should attend wearing clothes in which they can move/dance, eg. sweat pants/leggings,  sneakers/jazz shoes, no jeans, and all jewelry removed.

WHAT: Audition now to join our program that offers after school musical theater training and classes and performance opportunities in our mainstage productions to kids/children ages 8-18 FOR FREE. We don’t require auditionees to prepare anything in advance!

  • Once auditionees arrive on their audition date, they’ll sign in, receive a name tag, and join others in the room.
  • Together as a group they will learn 16-32 bars of a song and dance number from our musical director and choreographer then perform this in smaller groups.
  • These are closed auditions, so all Parents/Guardians must drop off their auditionee and come back to pick them up afterward.
  • We will invite some auditionees to callbacks via email, during which they will once again (as a group) learn 16-32 bars of a song and dance and then read scenes with someone else in the room.
  • Auditionees will then receive a either an email inviting them to audition again, or a phone call welcoming them to the RYET program.
