Auditions for our free Variety Children’s Chorus and Variety Dance programs, open to St. Louis-area kids and teens ages 8 through 20 with and without disabilities, will now take place VIRTUALLY this year on Monday, August 23, 2021. All those planning to audition for either or both programs must register online here by noon on Friday, August 20, 2021. Additional details on how to audition will be emailed to you following registration. You can also find more information about these programs at VarietyTheatre.org/Chorus.
Note: We originally planned to offer in-person AND virtual audition options, however, we have now switched to a completely virtual audition experience. Those who register now have a choice between auditioning via a live Zoom session (select your time slot below) or by submitting a pre-recorded audition video. If you already registered, you do not need to register again - Joy Addler will contact you via email with more details.
Those auditioning will be placed in one of the below groups based on their ability to take direction, their ability and willingness to participate and their ability to match rhythm (for dance and chorus) and pitch (for chorus). Placement emails will be sent by August 27.
