Auditioning: Casting & Cuts
Journey Theater is an educational non-profit organization that values providing opportunities for
kids to learn and grow through the theater arts performance experience. Because of this core
value, we ask our Artistic Team members to consider all auditioners fairly, consistently, and look
for ways to incorporate as many kids as possible into the production.
There are considerations that could cause a student to be “cut” from a production:
1.) Each of our venues can only safely accommodate a certain number of cast and crew.
2.) The student is unable to demonstrate a complete audition. This may include the student
needing to leave the stage, needing to start their audition over, or not showing
3.) The student demonstrates difficulty in maintaining behavior standards either in Journey
classes or in the audition/callback experience. This includes inappropriate audience
participation at open auditions (talking during other’s auditions) and unfocused behavior at
4.) The students’ parents have not demonstrated positive contribution to past committee
5.) The demands of the show are such that scheduling conflicts & missed rehearsals will
impede the progress & success of the show experience.
We want all Journey families to have a successful and positive show experience. Therefore, it is
important for us to follow these guidelines for the fair consideration and safety of all involved.
